Do you want to improve your practice development skills? If you're interested in taking your studies beyond graduate level, then our PgC offers a stimulating and challenging environment to help you further develop your skills. We provide a variety of negotiated and work-based modules explicitly designed to meet the needs of learners in a wide range of practice situations, gaining specialised knowledge and critical issues within your field.
You'll be able to choose your own pathway for the course so that it reflects your specialisms, ensuring what you learn is relevant to your work.
You will need to complete an induction prior to starting your first module. We have a comprehensive online induction package to welcome you to both the university and your programme of study; alternatively, classroom-based induction days take place at our Lancaster and Carlisle campuses and are usually scheduled for the first week of each semester.
You'll choose the modules that are most relevant to your work, gaining 60 credits overall. Taking this option will require you to complete a proposal form indicating the proposed title, providing evidence that at least 60% of the credit for the award is specifically focused upon the indicated subject area.
You will be required to attend one of the induction days prior to starting the first module of your course (distance learning students excepted). If you have studied at the University of Cumbria in the past two years, the requirement to attend the induction day may be waived. The closing date for applications is 5 working days prior to the module start date or, if this is your first module, 5 working days prior to the induction date.
Other admission details
Applications will be reviewed on an individual basis. Potential students will be offered advice by an academic tutor on the suitability of the award and their module choices, this will be dependent on factors such as currency of prior learning, and their personal and professional development needs. Students should be able to show the potential benefits of studying for the award and offer a rationale for their module choice.
Admission criteria are outlined in the University Admissions Policy. Normally applicants will be required to hold an honours degree classification second-class honours, lower division or above in a related subject. For applicants who do not meet this requirement, non-standard entry criteria will apply. In such cases, applicants will be interviewed. This decision will be at the discretion of the programme leader. It is expected that such candidates will have evidence of successful study at level 6 (or equivalent) within the preceding 5 years.
