This CILIP-accredited course is aimed at health care professionals who want to improve services in their sector by getting more out of information and communication technologies.

The course is taught online, using web-based software to deliver lectures and tutorials, so you can study from home or from work. For the first two years, you'll take taught modules. In the final year you'll complete a research dissertation, supervised by an academic.

You need to come to Sheffield for a three-day induction before the course starts, and again before you begin your dissertation. For the rest of the time, you could be based anywhere in the world.
