The Postgraduate Certificate in International Student Advice and Support starts in November and can be completed over one year of part-time study.
The Postgraduate Certificate ISAS comprises four 15-credit core modules. Each module is delivered in a 2.5 day intensive block totalling 15 hours (generally 4 hours on Friday, 7 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday). You are also required to attend an induction event on the Thursday preceding the first module.
The four 15-credit modules are:
- Cross-Cultural Aspects of Advice and Support (delivered in November)
- Advice-Giving and Client Care (delivered in February)
- Ethical and Legal Frameworks and the role of the International Student Advisor (delivered in April)
- Managing Complexity: Enhancing Student Advisor's Influence and Impact (delivered in June)
Each 15-credit module is assessed by a written assignment of 3,000 words or equivalent. To complete the Postgraduate Certificate programme successfully, a pass of 50% must be achieved on each assignment.
