The MA in Biomedical and Health Care Ethics offers a rigorous grounding in health care ethics and biomedical ethics, provided by tutors from the Centre with expertise in teaching ethics in medical disciplines. Students learn about the ethical issues that arise across all areas of medicine and health care practice, and can specialise in areas of particular interest. The course is taught entirely online, making it particularly appropriate for those in full-time employment or resident overseas, who wish to gain a qualification from a leading university without interrupting their career. Scholarships will cover a proportion of the academic fees, mostly up to half the value, more rarely up to the full value. For part-time students (who take the course over two years) the scholarship is subject to review at the end of the first year. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence, which will be assessed by considering the candidate's application to the University and supporting documents, and the interview conducted as part of the admissions process.
