Edinburgh Napier University


Off campus


Develop your knowledge of quality enhancement, student support and scholarship in higher education on this accredited course.

As a subject specialist you're already well established in your discipline. But teaching at a university or other institution at higher education level, requires a distinct collection of skills and knowledge and you’ll appreciate that opportunities for personal and professional development are fundamentally important for making the transition into teaching.

If you are already working in a higher education institution, this course offers you the chance to gain an accredited qualification at post graduate level and to be recognized as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. You'll need to engage in an entire year of part-time, work-based, collaborative online study.

Entry Requirements

A 2:2 Honours degree in any discipline. You will need to be in a substantive teaching and assessment role within higher education or at a higher education level in order to be eligible for the programme.
