The course consists of six 20 credit modules: two core and four optional. Each module is taught via a blend of contact time and distance learning. The blend varies according to each module (see module table).

The course involves both independent study, tutorials and group teaching. Its flexible nature means that you can plot an individual track through the course and use the virtual and physical learning environments to make contact with others. Everyone will start with the core modules: Career Development Theories and the next available Challenges of Careers Work in Higher Education module. These modules run twice a year (further details in AGCAS events calendar).
