About

This new Higher Education programme from Middlesex University Dubai is intended to attract those interested in the study of Higher Education as its own field of study.

Overview

The programme is designed to include an innovative range of modules which offer a wide exposure to the studies of higher education and reflect the changing landscape of Higher Education . It is based upon four onto-epistemological pillars of; philosophy, psychology, policy and pedagogical practice and their impact on institutional, national and global arenas.

This flexible and accessible course is aimed at academics and those supporting learning in higher education. The course explores the literature and best practice in teaching, learning and assessment together, to help students critique and apply generic and subject specific pedagogies and carry out related research across a broad range of disciplines and roles.

The Higher Education programme from Middlesex University Dubai offers an opportunity to continue studies beyond the PGCertHE level. If you have just completed your PGCert in Higher Education then you can progress onto the diploma level of this programme to continue your studies and professional development.
