PGCert in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management

Ming-Ai brings unique and practical experiences to the cultural heritage management field, and we are proud to be running the PGCert in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management course. This four-module course is a great option for students looking for a flexible course that offers career progression whilst balancing work and family commitments. The course can be completed either full or part-time for UK national students and full-time for international students.

This course provides all the information and skills required to effectively start a new career in the cultural heritage industry of a particular sector. This course draws students who seek an international cultural outlook or who wish to administrate and/or develop artistic practices required in the industry. It is also suitable for people already working in the industry who wish to equip themselves with knowledge and experience to further their career path in an increasingly popular and lucrative sector.

We are doing everything we can to ensure that you continue to receive a great learning experience with us in October. We aim to provide you with lots of support to achieve your potential throughout your learning whether you are with us online and/or in person. Students will work with both academic and practical sources with teaching and learning activities delivered through a mixture of live and on-demand tasks completed independently or as a group.

This course welcomes graduates from a variety of disciplines from the UK and worldwide. This programme is quality assured by Middlesex University and you will receive a Middlesex award on successful completion. Students will receive the award of PGCert in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management (60 credits achieved). Students who complete the PGCert in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management can go on to complete the PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management (subject to meeting the criteria, see below). Students who wish to pursue this route will rescind their PGCert certification and be rewarded with a PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management (120 credits achieved).

PGDip Criteria

For the PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management course, we welcome applications from undergraduates with a minimum degree classification of a 2.2 (lower second class) from a recognised institution. This course is also available to students that have already completed the PGCert in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management or PGCert in Heritage Skills for Community who would like to change to PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management. Students who wish to change their degree title to PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management must have completed their PGCert degree within the last 5 years. For example, a 2022 graduate can apply for the PGDip course up until the 2026/27 academic intake and will therefore need to apply on or before the fourth academic year after graduating. Students will only need to enrol for the four modules they did not previously complete and the PGCert certification will be rescinded. Once the 5-year period has passed, students can still apply for PGDip in Chinese Cultural Heritage Management but will need to complete the full course credits (120 credits).
