This tertiary teaching qualification is an ideal next step in your professional development if you are working in a teaching and learning role in the tertiary sector.
It provides a collegial, cross-disciplinary space for you to explore higher education learning and teaching, and equips you to undertake leadership or further study in higher education.
It consists of two 30-point compulsory courses to be taken part-time over two semesters. These courses are taught and assessed through a blended learning model using a combination of face-to-face (and streamed) seminars and online resources and assessments.
Offered by the University’s Centre for Learning and Research in Higher Education (CLeaR), this programme can qualify you for more advanced responsibilities or lead to a masters degree.
University of Auckland teaching staff can apply for the CLeaR Academic Development Bursary to cover the tuition fee for one HIGHED course within this programme.
Academic and professional staff at the University of Auckland who are New Zealand citizens or permanent residents can claim payment of tuition fees on a pro rata basis under the terms of their respective Collective Employment Contracts. In the case of the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and Master of Higher Education, they can claim up to 30 points per semester. Please discuss your enrolment and the payment of tuition fees with your Academic Head or Manager before applying.
