      University of Bath Post Graduate Certificate in International Education (PGCiE)

In 2020, the Education Development Institute in partnership with the University of Bath, UK, launched the Post Graduate Certificate in International Education (PGCiE) program. This partnership supports and enhances teacher development through a shared vision to grow leaders of learning and cultivate internationally minded learning communities.

The program is designed to develop an understanding of issues relating to education in an international context. Students explore the concept of culture and reflect on topical issues associated with international schools. The program provides opportunities for deeper reflection on professional practice, curriculum, and learning.

 

Postgraduate Certificate in International Education (PGCiE)

If you are a teacher or leader in this field, or looking to take on such a role, the Postgraduate Certificate in International Education (PGCiE) will provide you with sought-after skills and knowledge to develop your professional practice.

The PGCiE course explores issues such as education in an international context, international curriculum, and the meaning of culture.
