A total of 120 credits (the compulsory course worth 20 credits plus 100 credits from the Course Options) must be successfully taken to achieve the PG Diploma. The compulsory course may be taken in either year 1, 2, 3 or 4 of the programme. The Course Options consist of courses in Data Science and Health Care and Medical Informatics.
These courses are limited to students registered on the programme.
We recommend that students take no more than 60 credits in any one year.
With Programme Director approval, students may take up to 20 online learning credits offered within the University of Edinburgh from a related subject area over the course of the programme.
