Population Health Sciences offer a comprehensive programme of high quality intensive short courses in epidemiology, medical statistics, qualitative research, health economics, appraisal and synthesis of research, and health protection.

Cancellation of Short Course Programme

In light of the fast developing situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, and in the interest of protecting our staff and you as participants, we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Short Course Programme for the rest of the academic year. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and was agreed in conjunction with the department of Population Health Sciences. 

We will fully refund any fees already paid but unfortunately, as per our booking terms and conditions, we are not able to refund any other travel or accommodation expenses. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and understand that some of you may be disappointed.

Our courses range in duration from one to five days. They are aimed at University staff and postgraduate students, public health specialists, health-care professionals and members of the pharmaceutical and medical device industry.
