Sleep medicine students awake to the benefits of online learning

The Oxford Online Programme in Sleep Medicine (PGDip and MSc) offers people of different professional backgrounds across the globe access to the teaching and world-leading expertise in sleep research of Oxford's Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi).

"Online allows us to offer as much flexibility as possible, while still providing support, community and the best possible quality of teaching and training," says Colin Espie, Oxford Professor of Sleep Medicine.

Students benefit from comprehensive taught courses delivered through pre-recorded lectures, case studies, activities and regular live interactive group discussions with expert professionals and classmates from around the world.


Why online? We wanted to do something for people from different professional backgrounds who were interested in sleep, regardless of where they are in the world.
