University of Portsmouth & Cochrane Postgraduate Certificate in Systematic Reviews - enroll now for February 2016 start!

Cochrane and the University of Portsmouth (UoP) are pleased to announce the extension of our partnership following our successful collaboration in the development of our online learning materials. Cochrane contributors already have free access to these on-line resources. UoP have taken these materials and embedded them in a supported online platform, and added new content and tutorial support to develop a distance learning Postgraduate Certificate in Systematic Reviews in Health.

Why take the course?
If you are just starting your journey as a Cochrane Review author, taking the Postgraduate Certificate alongside will enable you to obtain additional support. You will have access to additional resources, tutorial support and feedback, take part in web-based discussion forums and have full access to the University Library’s comprehensive selection of electronic resources via internet connection. Assessment is via an online examination and critical report. The materials are not time released, so you can study full time (1 year) or part-time (2 years) when and where you like.

Alternatively, if you have already completed your systematic review, you might now consider putting all that knowledge to further use and obtain a postgraduate qualification from a reputable UK university.

UK, EU and all international students: GBP £1,370 (subject to annual increase).

Deadline for 4 February 2016 start: 31 January 2016
