The PgCert and MA Academic Practice are made up of both mandatory and elective units. Most of the elective units are shared by both courses.

All the elective units can also be taken on a stand-alone basis by those wishing to develop a discrete aspect of their academic practice for their continuing professional development.

In particular, the Supervising Research Degrees unit is linked to the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA) Professional Development Award in Supervising Postgraduate Research.

Please refer to the Study Pathways Diagram (PDF 279KB) for an overview of PgCert and MA units, and how they fit together.

All units are subject to UAL Academic Regulations
