The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education

Our sector-leading Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) is a 60-credit Master’s level programme for staff who teach and support learning in higher education. Staff who undertake the programme progress from an initial, evidence-based consideration of their own teaching contexts, to a more holistic examination of their role as academics in 21st-century academia, in preparation for a future as higher education leaders.

The PGCHE is suitable for:

  • early career academic staff involved in teaching and supporting learning (including probationary staff)
  • staff who support student learning through academic-related or professional roles
  • experienced staff who might be new to teaching (or teaching in the UK HE context).

Upon successful completion of the PGCHE participants are awarded:

All University of Birmingham staff may apply for the programme (priority is given to staff for whom completion of the programme is a probationary requirement).
