Postgraduate Certificate in International Education

Take an indepth look at education research and practice on our new Postgraduate Certificate in International Education for entry from 1 September 2019. It’s a part-time qualification, offered on a highly flexible basis.


This course is designed to enable you to learn in a way that fits with your own work priorities and commitments. You will learn how to reflect on your own practice, using your knowledge of the latest educational trends and developments, to inform and enhance the way you work.

Whether you are working as a teacher, lecturer, trainer, educational leader, manager or administrator - or aspiring to a career in international education - this course will provide a significant insight into the latest trends and leading-edge research, and how those impact on policy and practice in the context of international education.

It’s ideal if you already have teaching experience and wish to progress your career with a postgraduate level qualification.
