What are my study options?
PGCert and PGDip
From critically evaluating and applying health research techniques and solutions, to learning a wide range of teaching tools and teaching styles, we have a programme to suit all health care professions:
Any of our programme modules can be taken as ‘stand-alone’ short courses, as ‘not for credit’ professional training, academic credit, or to simply get a ‘taster’ of the award programme we offer.
New for 2023
EBHC Study Routes Overview
It can be tricky for students to make sense of which modules are available on which programmes and vice versa! Therefore we've developed pages to help make the options available to you as clear as possible.
From here, you can click on each of the programmes to find out which modules are available as part of that particular programme, and click on each of the modules to find out which programmes it's affiliated with.
Our students make a difference
As well as providing critical research to help shape better health care decisions, our students collate their findings into blogs to help inform and influence other students.
Many postgraduate students struggle to formulate their research questions. In this blog, Evidence-Based Health Care DPhil student, Ali Mulhem, shares his experience of finding a research question for a dissertation, having previously completed the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care.
In this blog, MSc in EBHC alumnus, Drew Dagens, reflects on his experience of the programme and his research project under the supervision of Course Director, Annette Plüddemann, having recently published his dissertation in the journal, 'Clinical Microbiology and Infection'.
