Centre for the Study of Higher Education

Postgraduate Diploma/Masters in Higher Education

The PG Diploma builds on the existing Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education with the addition of new modules designed to develop a critical understanding of the processes and nature of educational research, with a specific focus on HE.  We support you to develop and interrogate a field of specialism in the Higher Education context which can then be pursued through a dissertation for the MA.

These programmes are open to staff in academic, research and learning support roles with a minimum of two years’ experience of teaching and/or supporting learning in HE. They are free of charge for staff employed by the University of Kent and staff at partner colleges teaching University of Kent programmes.
