Course content

Our Learning and Teaching in Higher Education MA is specially designed to improve your career if you're assisting student learning or teaching in higher education.

You'll have the opportunity to move up to higher paying roles with more responsibility and recognition thanks to our course's Higher Education Academy (HEA)-accreditation. You'll also study specific e-learning modules that are accredited by the Staff and Education Development Association.

Our course will work around your teaching schedule, preparing you to take on more responsibility for your higher education subject. You'll become more confident in the theory, research and practical fields of teaching and learning.

After you complete the course, the HEA will allow you to apply for its Fellowship status. Having this status on your CV will enhance your potential for future promotion.
