Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education


A Postgraduate Award (PGA) is made up of one 20 credit module and taken as a stand alone qualification. Once you have received the award, you can apply for a longer course within the Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education suite and apply for the transfer of your credit. You are advised to discuss this with the course team. The course is delivered by the University of Warwick in collaboration with AGCAS and leads to an award by the University of Warwick.

Hear from Sue Johnstone, one of our students, who explains how the course is structured and who she would recommend it to:
