Entry requirements

Entry to the course requires you to hold a Postgraduate Certificate Special Educational Needs Coordination or a Postgraduate Certificate Specialist Assessment for a Specific Learning Difficulty: Dyslexia, which must have been awarded by Canterbury Christ Church University within the last five years. If you have achieved both with Christ Church, you may be permitted Advanced Standing into the final dissertation stage of this course.

The course is designed for professionals in educational settings and requires you to undertake practice-based tasks in relation to learning and teaching and assessment so it is necessary for you to be in an appropriate position to facilitate this in your setting.

If English is not your first language you require an IELTS overall score of 6.0 with no element below 5.5 for most standard undergraduate and postgraduate courses. There are some exceptions and if the IELTS requirement differs it will be specified on the course page.
