Course content

This course enables you to choose optional modules in line with your professional development needs in subjects such as:

  • Leadership and management
  • Change management
  • Learning and development
  • Personal effectiveness


You can start with one module and return later to build it into a qualification, or enrol for the qualification at the outset. The ‘step-on, step-off’ nature means you can pace your study to suit your own work/ life balance.

Progression routes to Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Degree are available via the Professional Practice route.

Students may also make a claim (APL) to gain credits for exemption from some modules.

Information for international students

We normally require an IELTS (Academic) Test with an overall score of at least 6.5, and a minimum of 6.0 in each element of the test. We also consider other English language qualifications.
