A world first in online education
It is the first programme to be delivered solely online, with graduates automatically receiving academic qualification, and global professional recognition of your commitment to teaching and learning in higher education and entitlement to use post-nominal letters: FHEA.

You will be encouraged to utilise international educational frameworks in order to design lessons, set assignments and decide on learning outcomes which can be applied to an international global teaching space. The programme is aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (UKPSF).
Study mode: Online and part-time
