This Masters award is a taught award linked to continuing professional development with a focus on practitioner research. Participants on the in-house programme will normally be employed by the University of Central Lancashire or in an associated HEI or college of FE and will have demonstrated ability to cope with Master’s level study either through APEL or previous qualifications, eg PG Certificate.
Access to the programme will be open to new participants with previous appropriate PG Diploma or PG Certificates from other institutions but degree and extent of APL/credits will be agreed on an individual case by case basis.
Entry requirements onto the PG Diploma without a PG certificate will include for example:-
First degree or equivalent professional qualification plus related work experience.

If you do not meet either of these requirements, you will still be welcome to apply on confirmation of ability to cope with Masters level study as a result of completing a diagnostic activity, presentation of a portfolio, or extended CV and interview.
