    This programme is available to anyone who has access to the internet. The programme will start in December and finish at the beginning of May each year. Specialist IBD accredited trainers are assigned to each module. Students work through the learning material on line and are asked to complete 5 assignments. The assignments are marked, graded and tutor comments provided. Please note the assignment grade does not go towards your final examination grade but does provides feedback on knowledge and level of preparedness for the examinations. Candidates will have the opportunity to participate in video conferences where the tutors will give live lectures. There will be approximately 5 tutorials per module. Please note the tutors select the timings of the tutorials based on the most convenient time/s for the entire group. Due to these courses attracting a global audience, timings are carefully selected to try to suit everyone, but this may not be always possible. Please note we would recommend sitting one module per year.
