The Medical Science Division offers students opportunities for training, whether it is compulsory to their course or tailored to individual needs. Each term a programme is released which outlines the training on offer. It is recommended that each student spends at least 10 days a year on graduate skills training.

Graduate supervisor system

Students can use the facility within the Graduate Supervisor System (GSS) to record any training requirements which will be fed back to the training officer who will offer advice. It is recommended that students work with their supervisor to update their CV with their skills training, and planning for future training opportunities.

Online courses

Medical Science Divisional skills training offers a number of online courses which take between 60-90 minutes for students to complete. These are hosted on WebLearn (Oxford Single Sign-On required for access), and range from avoiding plagiarism to entrepreneurship. To see a list of the online courses, please log in here.


This term's skills training course calendar can be found here.
