Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) - UAE The PGCEi in UAE is offered via Stafford Global. The course includes two induction sessions taught by University of Nottingham tutors, to support students through the duration of the course at times which align with the academic year in the UAE.
Course start date

Whilst you will not start with working on course content until after your induction, there will be some short online pre-course preparation tasks for you to complete before you attend the induction.
Sessions are normally held 9am to 5pm (UAE local time).
Following your induction, you will commence your online study. This will take place in our dedicated virtual learning environment (VLE) including online course materials, learning resources and regular tutorial support.
