Massive open online courses (MOOCs)
Our massive open online courses – or MOOCs – bring The University of Manchester's teaching to a global audience.
All you need to undertake a MOOC is an Internet connection. Unlike other courses they are free of charge and a typical MOOC lasts six to eight weeks. At the end you may choose to receive a certificate of completion for a small fee.
Your study on a MOOC takes place entirely online, through videos, discussions, quizzes, and reading and research activities.
Global Health and Humanitarianism
This course will give you an overview of global health and humanitarianism in theory and in practice. These two fields overlap, and are connected, in many significant ways. We have used three key themes to explore these subjects, presented by three keynote speakers who are leading specialists in their fields.
Due for launch: 1 May 2017.
