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:
Three short non-accredited training courses, designed to equip health care leaders with practical skills for examining and refining individual leadership styles to aid delivery of better patient outcomes.
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.
