About Academic Practice at City, University of London

This programme is aimed at providing you with the knowledge and skills you need to develop and enhance your teaching.

Who is it for?

This programme is only suitable for those whose role entails educating others - and for some of the modules additional experience may be required. Research students at City, University of London who are required to teach are also eligible to attend and complete certain modules.

Objectives

MA Academic Practice is a part-time postgraduate taught programme combining theory, practice, and the use of reflection to enable you to develop your teaching skills and educational knowledge for your role in Higher Education. The programme is primarily aimed at staff (internal or external to City, University of London) with an educating or facilitating role with students.

A key characteristic of the programme involves learning by working with peers, as well as through engagement with a number of educational technologies.

Requirements and how to apply

Entry requirements

The programme is open for application by staff at City, as well as external colleagues. To apply you should have a role that requires you to teach and facilitate student learning. You should normally have a first or second class Honours degree (or equivalent non-UK qualification).

In order to undertake the assessments, you will also need experience of regular teaching or facilitation activity (part-time teaching is sufficient). This does not apply if you wish to only undertake a module on an attendance only basis (i.e. without being assessed or awarded a qualification).

Internal applicants are required to provide line-manager approval with their application. External applicants are required to submit two references with (or shortly after) their application.

Visa requirements

If you are not from the European Economic Area / Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa or entry clearance to come to the UK to study.

The way that you apply may vary depending on the length of your course. There are different rules for:

  • Students on courses of more than six months
  • Students on courses of less than six months
  • Students on a pre-sessional English language course.

If you require a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you cannot undertake any City courses on a part-time basis.

For more information see our main Visa page.
