The Bioethics Centre offers a range of postgraduate study opportunities

Postgraduate study opportunities include single papers taken for a Certificate of Proficiency, through diplomas and masters' degrees, to doctoral research.

Our postgraduate students range from those who have just completed an undergraduate degree, to experienced professionals from all sorts of backgrounds. These especially—but not exclusively—include people working as health professionals, or those with policy and legal roles.

Students can study at a distance or in Dunedin. In addition to students from New Zealand we have many international students.

The vibrant student community runs its own postgraduate research forum, which meets during semester time. At the forum students and staff can present, discuss and workshop their research.
