Studying the PGCert Higher Education provides an important grounding in teaching techniques and practices, as well as providing support mechanisms for the continuing development of your teaching practice. The programme is fully accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

Why study PGCert Higher Education at Middlesex University?

The PGCert Higher Education is a vital developmental qualification for both new members of academic staff who are just embarking on a career in Higher Education, as well as those who may have been teaching for a while but have had no formal guidance in learning and teaching strategies.

It is mandatory for all new members of academic staff 0.5 FTE and above who join the University, and should be undertaken within the first two years of service. You will not need to undertake the programme if you have achieved a similar, recognised qualification at another institution.

Successful completion of the full programme confers Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) status on members of staff with a stepping off point of Associate Fellow of the HEA after two modules.
