Already working in higher education? Complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education in as little as one semester.
Explore key aspects of teaching and learning and the external factors (globalisation, technology, internationalisation, managerialism and corporatisation) that impact higher education organisations.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education will stimulate you to think critically about your practice. It’s designed for academics and support staff in higher education interested in high-level professional development and learning opportunities that lead to a formal qualification.
In exceptional circumstances, an applicant who has an appropriate combination of academic and professional experience deemed equivalent to the above may be considered for admission.
It is recommended that applicants have prior higher education work experience.
You need to successfully complete 60 points. Papers will be taught face-to-face over three to four intensive days (usually on a Saturday), and there will also be some online discussions.
The approach is collegial and collaborative, with a focus on applying the theory to your own practice.
To progress to the Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education you need to complete an additional 60 points.
