MSc Human Anatomy with Education students achieve Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy

Human Anatomy FHEA 500

Congratulations to our MSc Human Anatomy with Education students who have been successful in achieving their Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) - the professional accreditation required of Higher Education practitioners in the UK. 

The University's Learning & Teaching Professional Recognition Scheme (LTPRS) was created to ensure all members of the university who teach or support learning have the opportunity to develop their practice and be recognised for this work whatever their role and this year, all 13 MSc Human Anatomy with Education students who applied for FHEA have been successful.

The MSc Human Anatomy with Education course is unique in developing students’ advanced dissection skills and anatomical expertise whilst educating students about teaching strategies and curriculum development.

The course has been designed in a way to make students eligible to apply for the FHEA professional accreditation alongside gaining hands-on experience of teaching undergraduate anatomy students as part of the course. Since the launch of the MSc in 2017, 23 students have successfully achieved their FHEA professional accreditation.

Programme Director, Professor Katherine Linehan said: “Having a 100% success rate with regard to FHEA applications is a fantastic achievement for all those who have read for an MSc Human Anatomy with Education. The students should be very proud of all the hard work they have done to achieve this prestigious accolade. My congratulations also go to a number of the Anatomy teaching staff who have achieved FHEA and SFHEA in recent times: Dr Lauren Buck SFHEA, Dr Daniela Cacciabue SFHEA and Dr Chun Guo FHEA.”
