Why study this course?

Our Learning and Teaching in Higher Education MA is specially designed to improve your career if you're assisting student learning or teaching in higher education.

You'll have the opportunity to move up to higher paying roles with more responsibility and recognition thanks to our course's Higher Education Academy (HEA)-accreditation. You'll also study specific e-learning modules that are accredited by the Staff and Education Development Association.

Our course will work around your teaching schedule, preparing you to take on more responsibility for your higher education subject. You'll become more confident in the theory, research and practical fields of teaching and learning.

After you complete the course, the HEA will allow you to apply for its Fellowship status. Having this status on your CV will enhance your potential for future promotion.

In the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of all 2017 graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

More about this course

Using engaging theory and research, you'll develop as an outstanding practitioner who takes an active role in your professional development. You'll explore research related to the subject you teach and how to develop effective practice at work.

Will you complete the Postgraduate Certificate or full MA?

Successfully pass the Higher Education Academy (HEA)-accredited option within the course, and you'll gain the Postgraduate Certificate award. This will make you eligible for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

When completing the full MA, our additional modules will focus your attention on the wider context of the teaching and learning process. This will help you develop into a practitioner who has a much broader view of higher education.

Strengthen your skills and knowledge

You'll take part in national debates on the development of learning and teaching, touching on both your subject and more general subjects. By attempting to influence others with your ideas and research findings, you'll emerge from these debates more informed and confident about your knowledge and skills.

You can complete either a dissertation or a project to refine your expertise in one specific area of your subject. You'll use this expertise to improve the effectiveness of your teaching after you graduate.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through essays, portfolios, presentations and project reports. You'll also be assessed and evaluated by your peers.

We use this range of assessment methods to reinforce your understanding of advanced higher education teaching.
