Entry Routes

You don’t necessarily need previous experience in teaching to become a lecturer. The increasing expectations of individual students and corporate clients demand that our programmes have both academic and practical relevance. We have regularly engaged individuals into teaching roles from the engineering, law, finance and healthcare professions. Normal requirements would be:

  • Honours degree in relevant discipline
  • Professional qualification, Masters or PhD may be preferred 
  • Experience of teaching, research or relevant industry experience

All academic staff will be supported by the Department for the Enhancement of Learning, Teaching and Assessment (DELTA). DELTA provides a Masters of Art (MA) Higher Education Learning and Teaching, with exit awards at the Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) and Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) levels.
