Online Masters Open Days

Booking is now open for our Online Masters Open Days in human, animal and ecosystem health. The event takes place from 22 June to 26 June and is for students who are considering making an application to one of our online masters programmes. There are a range of sessions available, including programme-specific events with talks by staff members, as well as admissions events and a student panel with live question and answer sessions.

Our programmes have been developed to respond to the world’s most pressing challenges and to provide students with the specialist skills and evidence-led knowledge that the world, and employers, need from its health leaders. You will be able to study while you work, without the need to relocate, as our programmes are taught 100% online.
