Course content

For the past 40 years, the Postgraduate Diploma in Outdoor Education has been the world’s foremost graduate training programme in the field, providing a broad base for a professional career in outdoor education.

This challenging programme offers comprehensive coverage of the theory involved, along with more detailed study and practical professional development activities, such as rock climbing, a teaching placement and an expedition.

You will split your time between our Edinburgh base and our residential outdoor centres in the highlands and islands of Scotland, gaining practical experience in the field that will develop the skills, knowledge, understanding and judgement you need to guide and conduct groups safely on a range of outdoor ventures.
