To qualify for the award of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice, you must satisfactorily attend and complete assessments for the core course (20 credits) and four 10-credit course options.
In the core course, learning is assessed in the form of a synoptic assessment. This encourages you to combine elements of your learning from the other courses.
In the option courses, assessment varies widely, reflecting the aims and focus of each course. Details are included in the individual course outlines linked above.
