Study postgrad genealogy at home with Strathclyde Uni
The University of Strathclyde are offering the following courses: Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma in Genealogical Studies by distance learning.
The Postgraduate Certificate addresses the need for an intensive, practitioner-led, University-level qualification in Genealogical Studies. It is intended for those with an existing interest in Genealogy and related subjects, or those who wish to study the area in detail and possibly use it in their careers. It deals mainly, but not exclusively, with British subject matter.
The Postgraduate Diploma takes these subjects further and addresses overseas records in more detail. Entry to the Postgraduate Diploma is by successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate, and by invitation. The course is aimed at existing or intending professional genealogists and those who wish to be recognised as such.
You can apply now for entry to their October 2011 intake.

I’ve seen lots of websites offering services regarding family history, searching for coats of arms and so on, but i had no idea that one could get a recognised qualification in this field.
Would it be right to assume that an educational qualification in genealogy could lead to paid employment is of some sort in this field?

I think the key word there is “could”. Getting the qualification may lead to paid employment but, as with any professional qualification, it isn’t necessarily going to guarantee it.
That said, I think it would be a useful addition to the CV of anyone wanting to pursue genealogy, family history or related disciplines as a career.
