The web form for applications to our Face-to-Face Taught Programmes starting in September 2018 is now available here.
Applications for our September programmes will close at 17:00 BST on Wednesday 11 July 2018 and we need to have received an email from your listed referee’s work email address confirming your eligibility for the programme before 17:00 on 18 July 2018.
We will offer places to staff who are required by their QMUL probation contracts to take our programmes (as long as their applications were submitted before 17:00 on 11 July). After allocating places to staff required to take the programmes for probation, we’ll prioritise early complete applications (those with referee confirmation).
Once we receive your application, we will write to your referee to request their confirmation of your eligibility. You can improve your chances of having a complete application before 11 July and thus of securing a place if you ask your referee to send firstname.lastname@example.org an email from their QMUL email address with your full name in the email title confirming your eligibility as soon as you submit your application.). Your referee can confirm you eligibility by confirming in their email to us that:
- you’re contracted for at least 10 hours of teaching QMUL in 2018/19
- if you’re currently undertaking your PhD, that your supervisor and Head of School approve your concurrent study on your PhD and the CILT
PGCAP and PGCLTHE:
- you’re contracted for at least 10 hours of teaching QMUL in 2018/19 and expected to teach at least 10 hours in 2019/20
- you will be convening all or part of an undergraduate or postgraduate module this or next academic year and/or it’s a condition of your probation that you complete this programme
The Admissions Tutor in Educational Development, Claire Loffman, will email all applicants by 17:00 on 8 August to confirm whether or not you have secured a place.
Please consult the Admissions Process Guidance below to see the stages of the admissions process.
Teaching on our programmes will start in the week commencing Monday 24 September 2018.
This information is aimed at QMUL staff and those teaching QMUL students. External participants should apply to the distance learning programme.
Admissions process guidance
Step 1 – Check Eligibility
First please check your eligibility for the programmes.
You must be teaching QMUL students for at least 10 hours in the academic year you start the course, in order to meet the observation requirements for the core module and be eligible for a free place.
To complete the PGCert in Academic Practice or PGCert in L&T in HE participants need to be convening a module or contracted to do so.
Step 2 – Fill in the application web form and submit
Fill in the details as required by the form, including your personal details and the details of your most recent qualifications.
Step 3 – Reference
Once we receive your application, we will write to your referee to request their confirmation of your eligibility.
You can improve your chances of having a complete application before 11 July and thus of securing a place if you ask your referee to send email@example.com an email from their QMUL email address with your full name in the email title confirming your eligibility as soon as you submit your application.
Step 4 – HESA Fees Questionnaire
Before you can be made a formal offer by Central Admissions, you will need to fill in a fees questionnaire for essential HESA data gathering. You will not be charged fees on our Face-to-Face programmes but it is essential that you complete the form.
Enrolling and getting started
Step 5 – Formally accepting your offer
Once Central Admissions sends you your formal place offer, you need to accept that separate formal place offer by following the instructions in the offer email.
If you’ve been told you will be offered a place, you’ll need to look out for and accept your place from 15 August onwards. If you don’t formally accept your place, your application cannot be processed and you won’t be able to undertake your studies.
Step 6 – Pre-enrolment and Enrolment tasks for QMUL Registry
Once you’ve accepted your offer, your details will be passed on to QMUL Registry who will ask you to complete a short pre-enrolment and enrolment task online.
You will need to follow their instructions and complete the tasks in order to have a fully functioning student ID and access to all of the online resources on our programmes. Our Programme Induction will be on 12 September; we ask that you complete your pre-enrolment tasks before this date.
Step 7 – Attend Induction on 12 September 2018
To welcome each new cohort, Educational Development runs an induction day, which introduces new participants to the programme, its requirements and what it involves, as well as what we can offer you.
It’s really important that you attend if you can – it’s a vital chance to meet Educational Development tutors and fellow participants and for you to ask any questions you have.
Step 8 – Check out the course materials on QMPlus
Once you are fully enrolled you will be sent IT account details, which should enable you to log in to QMplus, our Virtual Learning Environment. On QMPlus you can access the readings, module information and the forums where you will need to post work and discuss with peers. QMPlus is also the platform on which you submit assignments, so it’s vital that you have access and make sure you can log in.
Log in at qmplus.qmul.ac.uk and if you can’t log in, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your username (starting in yd).
You should be added to the module area for your chosen module and be able to view the materials there in preparation for your first seminar. If not, contact the team and they will add you. If you are already a QMUL staff member, your staff account should be added as well as your new student account, so you will see your CILT/PGCert material and your own material under the same account.
If you are registered for more than one year you will be asked to re-enrol. You will receive an email reminder but this will come to your QMUL student account (ending in @stu16.qmul.ac.uk or @stu17.qmul.ac.uk). So it’s a good idea to set up forwarding from this account to your main address.
When you get the reminder, login to MySIS with your student details (not your staff details, if you have them) and choose “My Enrolment” from the homepage. You can watch a video of this process at http://www.arcs.qmul.ac.uk/students/study/enrolment/103187.html .
Please make sure you keep up to date with your student email account and re-enrol when prompted, otherwise you will be de-registered from the programme.
