This programme offers an opportunity for HE professionals to deepen their understanding of principles, theoretical concepts and context of Higher Education. Practice-based specialist modules are combined with modules supporting the development of research skills, culminating in a dissertation. The emphasis throughout is on a critical understanding of the HE context and its implications for academic work in the 21st century.
