For health professionals

If you’re a medical trainee or graduate, a nurse or other health professional who wants to carry out clinical research, or you just need to up-skill in research methods, then this qualification is well-suited to you. To enrol in the Diploma, you’ll need a relevant degree in health, medicine, neuroscience, psychology, biomedical science or biostatistics with a B+ average in relevant subjects, or have extensive relevant experience in the field.

Part-time online learning

The PGDipClinRes is mostly taught online and through teleconferencing, but includes a practical weekend seminar each semester that you need to attend in person. Teleconferencing forums are normally held on a weeknight.

The programme is best suited to part time study over two years, and is equivalent to about 1,200 student work hours. You’ll complete six compulsory courses totalling 120 points and will be assessed through your presentations, essays and formal reports. There is no formal examination.

You can enrol if you’re an international student, but you should note:

  • this programme is only available part-time
  • you need to attend a weekend seminar in Wellington at least twice a year
  • you need to participate in up to eight telephone conferences each semester
  • all of the above will be at your own expense, and is on top of your international student fees.

Community

Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, academics, clinical experts and professional colleagues.

The Postgraduate Students' Association can give you information on study at Victoria and provides a voice for you on campus.

Careers

You‘ll be able to expand your current work to include clinical research, or move into a new career as a clinical researcher in a range of areas in the health sector. You might work for a drug company, a hospital clinical trials unit or a research institute.
