Course content

This flexible suite of courses is designed to support your professional development if you’re working in a career development support role within the university sector. You may be involved in career counselling/coaching, career information provision, employer liaison, employability or career-related teaching.

You’ll study part-time via a blend of distance learning and teaching here at Warwick. Workshops are highly interactive and led by experienced Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Service (AGCAS) trainers. Multimedia materials and peer forums support your learning and, through our virtual learning environment, are accessible wherever you are.

In 2016/17 we’re offering two core modules on Career Development Theories and the Challenges of Careers Work in Higher Education. You can also select from a variety of optional modules, quantities of which will vary depending on the qualification you’re working towards.

Note that fees are made up of two elements separately charged by the University of Warwick and AGCAS, our partner professional body for this collaborative programme area. Fee information can be viewed here.
