All teaching on our distance learning postgraduate courses in medical education is delivered through an online virtual learning environment and incorporates a range of interactive teaching.

These resources enable regular peer and tutor interaction and the majority of the material can be studied in your own time, when it suits you.

The teaching materials encompass:

  • podcasts
  • blogs
  • discussion boards
  • webinars
  • videos

and your learning will be focused around tutor-delivered material, peer discussion, directed self-study and assignments.


Each module is assessed via course assignments, which vary in number, length and task. There are no examinations.

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
