The University of Cambridge Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education has been designed collaboratively by the University of Cambridge, Institute of Continuing Education and the University of Cambridge, School of Clinical Medicine’s Clinical Deanery. The Postgraduate Certificate is a one-year, part-time Master’s-level programme resulting in 60 FHEQ Level-7 credits and the University of Cambridge award.

Applicants may wish to continue onto the linked Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Education which provides a further 60 credits at FHEQ Level 7.

Course delivery: We plan to deliver the majority of our postgraduate and MSt qualifications in-person in the academic year 2021-22, supplemented by some online sessions (indicated in the Teaching And Assessment section). Please note that this will be reviewed in line with the latest public health guidance available at the time. If required, to ensure the health and safety of students, we may look to utilise alternative teaching formats and will contact students if we expect changes to the course delivery.
