Application for PGDip in Health Professions Education (distance learning)
To undertake this programme you should have the ability to teach within a health professions background. Applicants applying without first completing the Certificate in Health Professions Education, will need to have an equivalent qualification, approved by the Department.
HYMS considers applications for accreditation of prior certificated learning (APCL) or for accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL) on an individual basis. While applicants may make initial enquiries to HYMS, no formal consideration will be made until an application to the programme of study has been submitted.
The programme is blended learning; the majority of the programme is conducted over the virtual learning environment, with four study days.
The deadline for applications for January 2017 entry is 31st October 2016. Early applications are encouraged, however, as there are a limited number of spaces on the programme.
