Course content

This programme will help health professionals to develop their teaching skills, with a modular unit structure that builds up to a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or MSc. The programme emphasises practical application of educational methods and theory and the development of reflective, evidence-based practice.

There is a positive, student-centred approach to teaching and learning. Interactive, small-group teaching and the flexible, friendly support received by learners are among the many strengths of the programme, as well as the networking and contacts enjoyed by students in their future careers.

The 60-credit certificate can be completed in one or two years part-time. Following completion of the certificate, the 60-credit diploma can be achieved over one or two years part-time. On completion of 120 credits, progression to the 60-credit MSc dissertation is allowed. Alternatively, all 180 credits can be attained through studying full-time for one year.

The Essentials route allows you to gain 30 master’s-level credits, from which point you can progress to the certificate if you wish
