The course consists of six 20 credit modules: two core and four optional. Each module is taught via a blend of contact time and distance learning. The blend varies according to each module (see module table).
The course involves both independent study, tutorials and group teaching. Its flexible nature means that you can plot an individual track through the course and use the virtual and physical learning environments to make contact with others. Everyone will start with the core modules: Career Development Theories and the next available Challenges of Careers Work in Higher Education module. These modules run twice a year (see dates and further details in AGCAS events calendar).
There is significant individual support available through the extended course team consisting of Phil McCash (Warwick), Gill Frigerio (Warwick), Sharon West (Warwick), Linda Byrne (AGCAS), Jan Cornish (AGCAS) and a large group of highly experienced AGCAS Trainers and Mentors.
Part-time international and EU applicants are welcomed. We have received successful applications from a range of countries including the UK, Ireland, Norway, France, Germany, Romania, Slovenia, USA, China and Australia.
The Higher Education Careers Services Unit (HECSU) provides the HECSU Training Bursary Scheme to support participants on this joint AGCAS and University of Warwick course.
Former students now occupy a range of roles in higher education careers work including management, education and career coaching. Many students progress from the PG Diploma CEIGHE to the MA CEIGHE.
