We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The University of Edinburgh has been offering innovative online programmes to medical, veterinary and health-related professionals since 2005. Today we offer 49 online programmes to choose from and our portfolio is expanding all the time.
The University of Edinburgh is one of the largest providers of online postgraduate programmes in the UK’s Russell Group and our flexible, online learning programmes are transforming the career prospects of thousands of postgraduate students around the world.
With more than 4000 online students at the University, we take the delivery of teaching online as seriously as we do on-campus. Every programme has an experienced programme director as well as administrative support, and each student has a personal tutor, so you will be fully supported in all aspects of your student experience.
The high levels of satisfaction reported by our online students is testament to the quality of our programmes and to our focus on developing learning experiences that fulfil student objectives.
The online, part-time format is particularly suited to those in employment or with other professional or personal commitments, and allows a flexible learning environment that can be adapted to suit individual needs.
You can choose to study at a time and place that suits you, saving relocation costs. Many of our online learning programmes also have the option to be taken as intermittent study, allowing you to complete a masters programme in up to six years.
Developed by expert clinicians to provide practitioners with the skills and knowledge required to take their next career move.
Our research expertise is at the heart of the excellent educational experience we offer in a wide range of online programmes.
Our innovative programmes benefit from our research expertise in a wide variety of areas and form the depth and breadth of interdisciplinary collaboration across the university.
The quality of our animal related programmes is underpinned by the prestige and global recognition of our Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and of the Roslin Institute.
A collaboration with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) also allows us to extend our programme offering in the areas of Agriculture and Food Security.
