Postgraduate Education for Healthcare Professionals

Postgraduate Study at Warwick Medical School

Find out more about our Master's level programmes and professional development courses.

As a leading UK medical school, our courses are developed and led by dedicated, expert healthcare professionals who understand your busy lives, and our priority is to provide flexible learning that will fit with your schedule. Our master's courses can be taken over a period of up to three years and many individual modules are available to take as standalone qualifications. This allows you the flexibility to study at a level and pace suited to your needs.

What level of study is right for you?

Postgraduate Awards (PGAs) can be a great way back into higher education if you haven’t studied for a while or to give your career an extra boost.

They offer a concentrated period of study, usually over a week, to enable you to delve into the subject area and get the most out of your studies. You'll work alongside like-minded professionals, taught by academics active in the field in which you are studying.

We run PGAs in a range of subject areas across the academic year, and if you decide you want to study more modules with us in the future, you can upgrade your award to a postgraduate certificate or a postgraduate diploma.
