The BSc (Hons) Professional Practice in Advanced Pilot Aviation programme is designed to provide opportunities for experienced and practicing professional pilots who have at least three years experience as a First Officer or above to gain an Honours degree. 'Advanced' pilots are distinguished from those who have just entered the profession as First Officers and this also distinguishes the programme from the BSc (Hons) Professional Aviation Pilot Practice for those starting professional pilot training.

This programme will normally run for between 12 to 18 months and students will enter directly at level 6 (the Honours or final level) and make a claim for credit against levels 4 and 5 for having previously successfully completed ground/flying school and achieved an ATPL/ CPL. This degree open to both fixed wing and helicopter pilots.As a student of this course...

Course content

What will you study on the BSc Professional Practice in Advanced Pilot Aviation?

The programme is designed to recognise and develop higher-level professional learning that takes place in the context of work undertaken as a commercial airline pilot and integrates required and key aspects of this professional role. Those undertaking the course will be required to reflect on their professional learning as a source of evidence of meeting programme and module learning outcomes. For example, sources of evidence of higher-level professional learning will include the Recurrent Review, Voyage Reports, Air Safety Reports, Safety and Emergency Procedures, Crew and Resources Management. Many aspects of the programme are negotiable to enable it to reflect the specific context of an individual's professional pilot practice. The programme is designed to enable professional pilots to develop a claim for recognition of their prior learning and thus to gain academic credit that can count towards the degree.

  • Modules
    • Review of Learning (15 credits at level 6) - Compulsory)

      The Review of Learning module will provide an introduction to reflective practice and higher-level work-based learning. The module will also support the development of a claim for prior professional learning up to 240 academic credits at levels 4 and level 5.

    • Negotiated WBL Project (Professional Development Portfolio) (15 credits at level 6) - Compulsory)

      This module runs throughout the programme and is designed to support the gathering of evidence of ongoing professional development.

    • Negotiated WBL Project (The Recurrent Review) (20 credits at level 6) - Compulsory)

      This module will capture the professional learning from the CAA/EASA required Recurrent Review.

    • Professional Practitioner Inquiry (30 credits at level 6) - Compulsory)

      This module requires professional pilots to identify a project proposal for an area of your own or others' practice that can be improved and will support the development of appropriate methods of inquiry as a basis for thinking about the kind of improvement that might be made. The module will also support the development of appropriate approaches to designing and planning the final Advanced Pilot Aviation Project.

    • Negotiated WBL Project (Advanced Pilot Aviation Project) (40 credits at level 6) - Compulsory)

      This module will have a key role in reinforcing the professional knowledge, understanding, skills and values required for Advanced Pilot Aviation Practice. It will represent a negotiated project or other activity that is specifically designed to enhance an identified area of Advanced Pilot Aviation Practice.

You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course. Where optional modules are available, you will be asked to make your choice during the previous academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
