Study patterns: International Postgraduate Certificate of Education (iPGCE) (online) - MX1BN

On this page, you will find the study patterns for our International Postgraduate Certificate of Education (iPGCE) online (MX1BN) programme.

Please use the links below to move directly to the relevant study pattern for the term you are enrolling onto.

This study pattern highlights the modules that you will need study over the next 12 months. Please note that all students are required to re-enrol at the start of every academic year in September and so within your enrolment you can only choose modules for the current academic year.  

The scheduled modules for the remainder of your programme (outlined below) are based on the current plan, however, the order of these may be subject to change. Should any changes be made, we will communicate this to you as soon as possible.   

Please note that any optional modules are subject to viable group sizes. Should you choose a module that is deemed to be non-viable, you will be notified of the alternative available options.   

Pace of your study
For students completing the programme at the standard rate of study, the required minimum number of study time is 20 hours per week.
