Postgraduate courses

100% Online, Self Directed Learning – NO lectures, seminars or set class times.

Students can study wherever and whenever they wish.

Clinically rich case scenarios, multidisciplinary classes and reflective practice.

Faculty made up of key opinion leaders, global experts and top level medical educators.

Dedicated Student Services to monitor and support students through their journey.

What is self-directed learning?

Students are not spoon-fed information through traditional teaching methods such as lectures and classes. They need to find it out for themselves.

Twice a week the tutor will post a clinically rich case scenario into the academic forum. Students will read this, do their research, post a response and then discuss with classmates and the tutor on the forum.

They then fill in a reflective journal which helps them implement this learning into their day to day life.

All modules are 6 weeks long and there is an end of module assessment/exam.
