"It was really important to me to find a course which was flexible. I can take a week off from my clinical work, come to Oxford and spend the week studying, and the rest of the course is online. I feel very supported by the forums and I can stay in touch with my colleagues but at the same time I haven’t had to put my clinical career or the rest of my life on hold to be able to do a Master’s."

Kristina, MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care (based in Canada)
