Postgraduate; leading to a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert)
The PG Certificate has two start dates:
- September start date: 9 September 2019
- January start date: 20 January 2020
Students on a PG Certificate can complete their studies in a minimum of one semester full time or two semesters part-time.

Evidence of prior alternative learning such as professional qualifications or certifications can also be considered as part of the application process.
Some students may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) based on their previous studies, such as DELTA. ELT consider applications for RPL on a case by case basis in line with the University's recognition of prior learning policy. To confirm the exact amount of credit you could be awarded, please forward your relevant transcript to email@example.com.

Obtaining the listed entry requirements will not guarantee you a place, as the University considers all aspects of every application including, where applicable, the writing sample, personal statement, and supporting documents.
