This MEd Tertiary and Higher Education is designed to support the professional development of individuals working in education and training at either tertiary or higher education level. The intention is to strengthen and enhance participants' understanding of educational issues while raising their professional profiles.

You will be encouraged to discuss and analyse information from a wide range of theoretical perspectives and apply them to your own professional practice. You will have the opportunity to focus your studies on an area of professional educational interest while developing research skills and an understanding of ethical principles in higher education.

The course can help you to make changes in your professional practice that can have a positive impact on you and on your learners.

For those working in higher education, on successful completion of the PgCert, you will be eligible to apply to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
