Graduate Certificate of Education*
The Graduate Certificate of Education is a nested award in the Master of Education designed to equip education professionals with an understanding of a biblical perspective on the philosophical foundations of education. It provides a broad understanding of professional educational principles as well as critical and creative thinking skills which are valuable to any professional context. It also provides the opportunity for students to explore the implication of their faith in their professional context.
This course can be a destination course or exit point, thus allowing flexibility for students who may wish to start with a short postgraduate course before committing to a Master of Education or for students who need to exit the Master of Education earlier than intended, due to unforeseen personal or professional reasons.
Through a Higher Education Third Party Arrangement (HETPA), the National Institute for Christian Education (NICE) delivers this course of study on AC’s behalf.
