What is a UICC Master course?

Delivered on the UICC eLearning platform, they offer a unique blend of modular learning and peer-exchange, combining recorded webinars and case studies with assignments, discussion forum activities and live Q&A sessions. 

Launched at regular intervals, Master courses are faculty-led and follow a fixed schedule within which the course must be completed. Cohorts are capped to maximise interaction and participants are selected based on their applications and the relevance of the learning to their role. 

​When will the next cycle of Master courses take place?

The next cycle of Master courses will open for applications in March 2023, with courses expected to run between April and July 2023.

Can I access past Master courses?

Once a Master course has been delivered, the learning materials are reviewed and the content adapted so that it can be accessed as a self-guided course. These courses are available on-demand for all employees of UICC member organisations.
