Master programmes have been selected by individuals from the European Medicines Training Network (EMTRAIN) who represent industry, regulators and academia. In order to obtain a comprehensive catalogue of master programmes a manual search of every university website in all 27 EU and associated countries (over 1000 universities) complemented with state-of-the-art web crawling techniques was conducted.
Courses were selected from over 60 scientific and therapeutic areas (e.g. biochemistry, biotechnology, stem cells and regenerative medicine, ageing, psychiatric disorders). Although English is the universal language, it is recognised that there are many high quality courses taught in other languages. On-course therefore holds courses taught in over 20 different languages. The language of the course is clearly shown in on-course but the course description is always given in English.
Presentation of course information was a major focus of the EMTRAIN team. Course providers that were unable to give clear and concise information on for example fees, course description and contact details were not included in on-course. Part of EMTRAINs mission is to make course information more transparent for course seekers and we have assembled a dedicated team to help course providers meet a high standard of presentation. In on-course you will therefore see a key information box, followed by a short description of the course. In addition, we have developed a module manager that where possible lists all the modules that comprise the master course along with their associated credits and whether or not each module can be taken as a separate CPD. The aim is to allow the course seeker to make an informative decision regarding course suitability without the need to search multiple pages of extensive text. We have also built in a course comparison feature where you can align your chosen courses and compare at glance attributes including cost, location, credits, length of course and number of students per course.
We welcome your feedback on any aspect of on-course and have therefore incorporated two feedback functions. Firstly, you can feedback in private and leave us your email if you’d like us to respond (use the feedback section below). Secondly, you can post your thoughts on our forum which will be shared with all registered on-course users. We’re particularly interested in:
