HEA Fellowship offers valuable professional recognition, enhancing your teaching practice and academic profile. Whether you are just setting out or leading learning and teaching at strategic level, we offer a pathway to Fellowship. There are four categories of Fellowship. Your professional experience and current responsibilities will determine the appropriate pathway for you.

      Studying a postgraduate programme enables you to deepen your understanding of higher education both as an academic discipline and as professional practice. We offer specialist programmes in Technology Enhanced Learning or Curriculum Design, and a dedicated award for postgraduates who teach. You can study one or combine modules to build a PG Cert.

      The Academic and Professional Pathway for Experienced Staff (APP EXP) is a continuing professional development programme which has been accredited by the Higher Education Academy to confer the status of Associate Fellow, Fellow, Senior Fellow and Principal Fellow. This pathway supports experienced staff in their engagement with the UK Professional Standards Framework UKPSF and helps them to evidence their engagement through two possible routes: the Dialogic Route or the Written Route.
