Understand your role in higher education – and develop your career

20 May 2019

Apply for the PG Cert in Higher Education for 2019/20 – applications close Wednesday, 26 June

The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education is aimed at academic staff and senior Professional Service (PS) colleagues here at Manchester.

Its aim is to help you think more critically about your contribution to the University, as well as to develop a better understanding of the sector-wide changes in the Higher Education landscape. The programme is coordinated through Manchester Institute of Education and delivered by colleagues from around the University. 

There is a choice of course units that include topics such as:

  • thinking critically about policy (and the ideologies that underpin it) at a time in which the sector moves towards unprecedented levels of institutional competition and comparison;
  • looking at open practice, education and access, connecting open practices from across the University. Participants contribute to an open educational resource via an open publication;
  • exploring a range of assessment and feedback techniques to suit a Faculty’s evolving courses.

The programme is free to University of Manchester staff.
