Taster and short course registration from September 2021 to May 2022.
The Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOS ICH) has offered a selection of postgraduate modules as short and taster courses for several years.
Short courses are aimed at candidates seeking non-credited continued professional development (CPD) for which they receive a certificate of attendance, upon successful completion of the module(s). Taster courses provide an excellent method of giving health professionals the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills. Upon successful completion of the module(s) these credits can then be banked and transferred to a UCL MSc, postgraduate diploma or postgraduate certificate within the given time frame.
What are the differences between taster modules and short courses?
Participants who successfully complete a short course receive a certificate of attendance, but they are not assessed and do not receive UCL credit.
Participants who successfully complete a taster course are assessed and can gain UCL credit when they register for a full UCL postgraduate programme. They can also request a certificate of attendance if they so wish. Taster students wishing to convert credits earned at UCL to a Certificate, Diploma or Degree programme through 'Accreditation of Prior Learning' must apply within five academic years of taking the taster module.
Participants must state on the application form whether they are taking the course as short or taster. There is also a difference in fees between the two.
When applying, please allow approximately two weeks for your application to be considered and for a response to be sent out.
