Course summary

Never more relevant, our mission is to equip our global students with the principles underpinning the design, management, appraisal and reporting of clinical trials to improve health

Study with us to gain a qualification in the theory and practice of health care interventions including randomised control trials. Our suite of online courses allows students to qualify at Certificate, Diploma and Masters level.

How is it taught? Each course is divided into a set of themed sections in which material is presented in a blend of short online lectures, practical case studies, directed readings, podcasts and archived webinars. Discussion board tasks and live expert guest lectures offer an opportunity for collaborative critical discourse and debate of current issues under the guidance of expert teaching staff. Who is it for?

The programme will support the demand for appropriately qualified health professionals to lead clinical trials of all phases. It is suitable for graduates in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, life sciences and other allied disciplines involved in Clinical Trials. It also attracts students who are working in clinical trials but have not studied for many years, and people who wish to move into the field of clinical trials and change their career.

Career opportunities

Our Certificate, Diploma and Masters courses are designed to improve your prospects in the rapidly growing field of clinical trials research. Students have found excellent opportunities in academia, the public and non-profit health sectors and industry including pharmaceutical and biotech companies and contract research organisations (CROs).
