Modules from the Oxford Online Programme in Sleep Medicine may also be taken as standalone short courses. These are available to those wishing to study only a few aspects of the programme to facilitate professional practice.

Applicants may take up to three short courses only. For those wishing to do more it would then be necessary to apply for the PgDip in Sleep Medicine.

All completed applications must be received a minimum of six weeks prior to the course start date to be considered. (NB You cannot be enrolled on two short courses running over the same dates.)

All short courses are charged at 25% of the home/overseas fee for the PgDip:

  • 2022/23 entry: £1540.00 home or £2373.75 overseas
  • 2023/24 entry: £1663.75 home or £2563.75 overseas

Completed short courses (to a maximum of three) can be transferred to our MSc/PGDip Sleep Medicine programme provided the summative assessment has been successfully submitted. We recommend taking up to  two modules in the first instance and waiting for your assessment results before taking a third short course.
