We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
These programmes provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of the issues involved in the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of randomised controlled trials of health interventions. They are suitable for students working in low-, middle- and high-income countries.
The need for rigorous evaluation of components of health care is increasingly recognised worldwide. An important type of evaluation is the randomised controlled clinical trial. These courses will give students an understanding of trials which will equip them to work in this increasingly important field.
They are suitable both for those wishing to gain an overall understanding of trials before moving into the field, and those who have general or specialist experience in clinical trials and aim to

I am Dr Julien Nyombayire, working as a research physician in HIV epidemiology and prevention research in Kigali, Rwanda.
My choice of the School was mainly driven by its world renowned reputation of high quality education and the diversity of the teaching expertise found in the School’s programs, especially in health research.
Although very demanding, my experience in distance learning has been rewarding because of the interesting lectures provided by experienced professors and tutors, as well as sharing experiences with students of different backgrounds from all over the world.
I have enjoyed the lectures overall as well as the application of theoretical principles learned in classes in daily research activities. I have no doubt the knowledge acquired during my studies will build foundation for my future career in research and will open doors for even more learning opportunities.
I’m a doctor and I work for the Psychological Medicine Research Group at the University of Oxford. I develop new ways of helping people who have cancer and who also have depression. Studying clinical trials really helped me in my day to day work and also meant that I had a much deeper understanding of the work I was doing, both theoretically and practically.
I had never studied anything by distance learning before so was rather apprehensive about that. But the modules were really well organised and practical. The most exciting thing was that many of the tutors were world experts in clinical trials and epidemiology, so it was fantastic to be able to discuss things either online or in live chats. I would absolutely recommend this course. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
