The normal entrance requirement for the Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma is a degree or similar qualification. Applications from candidates who do not possess the qualifications above may also be considered. Such applicants may have completed a workplace qualification such as an S/NVQ in Advice and Guidance, and in all cases should be able to demonstrate appropriate knowledge, skills, experience and maturity, and satisfy the University that they have the potential to reach the academic standards required of a programme at postgraduate level by holding at least an HNC in Social Sciences, Career Guidance or an equivalent qualification.
We welcome applications from a variety of backgrounds, including groups which have been underrepresented in the career guidance profession. Applicants for the online learning Certificate and Diploma are expected to be employed for the whole duration of their programme in a career or educational guidance context, or in an organisation whose main function is to give educational or careers guidance to adults.
