The programme is designed for an international audience, and there is an option for academic credit.

Comments from previous participants:

"The course was of great benefit to me, as it was more of providing practical solutions on how to tackle the burden of NCDs. The knowledge I have gained will help me and my organisation to further devise effective, efficient, and cost effective solutions to reducing the burden of the disease in my country and globally."
Olatunde Ojo, Programme Manager, Nigerian Heart Foundation

"Great mix of participants, very good speakers and well organized time table. It was great to have individual meetings with speakers in the afternoons and discuss ideas and current issues in NCD prevention. It was also a fantastic opportunity to network with people from all over the globe, and learn from their experience."
Komal Bhatia, Student, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

"Being new to public health, I found the course extremely valuable and stimulating. The tutors made me feel very welcome - and I benefitted a lot from 1-1 chats. I'm working hard now to try and make the most of it!"
Duncan Gillespie, Department of Public Health and Policy, Liverpool University

"The course was very well-structured. Each and every professor or speaker was very interesting in his own way. I especially enjoyed the group work, as it was very interesting to hear other people's ideas and thoughts. Also, the course was not simply about teaching students about NCDs, it was more about everyone sharing their experience and knowledge."
Marika Harutyunyan, Student, University of Edinburgh
