Online, UNsupervised learning

You can take almost all of our courses more cheaply without enrolling on a degree programme or working towards University credit, via our online, UNsupervised, self-directed learning (USSD) mode of study, which is eligible for Continuing Professional Development & Medical Education (CPD / CME) recognition.

Online, unsupervised learning

Online, UNsupervised learning allows you "bare bones" access to our online teaching materials.

You will have access to:

  • online lectures
  • lecture pdf downloads to facilitate note taking
  • self-assessments
  • resource / reading lists (downloadable as pdf)

Access to our online, UNsupervised learning materials will expire after 6 months.

You will NOT have access to:

  • our tutors / online academic support
  • the University of Edinburgh library (i.e. you will have to source your own portal to access our resource / reading list recommendations)
  • our interactive activities
  • virtual classrooms / discussion boards

This means you:

  • can start to study whenever you want
  • study at your own pace over your 6 month period of access, not tied in to our teaching schedule
  • do not need to demonstrate competence in English language
  • will not receive University of Edinburgh credits
  • will be able to count hours of study towards Continuing Professional Development / Medical Education (CPD / CME)

We will issue a certificate documenting what courses you have completed & the number of hours of teaching we have assigned to each course.
