Who is the programme for?
The participants in the Modular Training Programme are normally science, medical or veterinary graduates (or equivalent) either currently working in a toxicology environment or seeking to use a knowledge of toxicology in some area of their careers.
The Modular Training Programme is ideal for research managers, regulatory affairs specialists, occupational and environmental health scientists and physicians, research scientists and anyone who needs to keep abreast of the developments in modern toxicology without having to enrol on a full-time training programme.
Although formal qualifications are normally required for registration as an MSc candidate, no such requirements apply to participation in a training module.
Cancellations can be made up to 4 weeks before the date of the module without incurring any penalty. After this date, the full module is payable.
