PGDip/MSc in Gastroenterology 2017

Friday, 03 March 2017 14:44

The Diploma is taught from October until April the following year. There is approximately 10 hours of teaching per week plus tutorials regularly throughout the course. The programme consists of a combination of lectures, small group tutorials and practical sessions. The programme makes use of a variety of on-line teaching methods but the bulk of teaching is recorded live and made available later on the day of the teaching.

Distance Learning (DL) students access the teaching through the dedicated University on-line teaching environment (QMPlus) and review all lectures and other teaching sessions, these can be accessed on all equipment and can be download as pod- or vod-casts allowing off line review. On line live tutorials are arranged every 1-2 weeks and gastroenterology teaching fellows act as primary contacts and mentors for the DL students.

To complete the MSc, students undergo either a research project (MSc Gastroenterology) or case series report (MSc in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology) submitting the final thesis in the middle of August.

Distance learning students can enrol for either the PG DIP or MSc variations of the course. If you’re unsure of funding or timings we would advise taking the PG DIP – we can always transfer you once dissertations and funding are finalised.

The first part is the taught aspect of the course (120 credits, equivalent to a Diploma) which is divided into 6 modules. All modules are compulsory and run from October to April.
