- Postgraduate Certificate & Diploma in Health Economics for Health Care Professionals (online programmes with residential element):
Mounting pressure on health care budgets worldwide has focused attention on how best to organise health care systems and the spending within them. The York programmes in Health Economics for Health Care Professionals have been set up in response to a perceived need in health care sectors for high quality distance learning programmes in health economics. The programmes allow students to gain an accredited qualification whilst continuing in their careers, and offer the flexibility to spread study over a period of years to match professional and personal circumstances.

We offer two programmes with the aim of providing students with the skills and confidence to apply the principles of health economics within the workplace:

* The Postgraduate Certificate programme covers the basic principles and tools of health economics.
* The Postgraduate Diploma programme covers these same basic tools and deeper knowledge in specific areas.

The programmes are open to UK and international students. The programmes are based around learning 'modules'. Each module has been designed around a workbook written specially by health economists in York and is supplemented by learning support for distance learners. Each module is assessed at the end of the twelve week module study period: for Modules 1 to 4 this involves an unseen written examination taken at an assessment centre. Modules 5 and 6 are assessed by essays and short pieces of project work completed in your own time.

Benefits of Online / Distance Learning Education:
The biggest benefit of studying by Distance Learning is the flexible method of study - combining further study with a busy job, family and social life can be challenging at times. As a result, the Distance Learning study programmes at York have been designed to provide a high level of personal and academic support; ensuring students continue to feel motivated as they move through the programme.

The programmes of study offer students the opportunity to enhance their careers through personal and professional development whilst they maintain their current employment. Whilst studying online provides for greater flexibility, it is equally intensive and as academically rigorous as traditional means of study.

Woodgrove Tutorials
Courses / Programs
Woodgrove Tutorials are an award winning college and a training provider of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) courses through distance learning / home study.

ICB's primary objectives are to promote bookkeepers and enable them to gain recognition as an integral element of the financial system. The ICB controls this through qualifications and grades of membership which recognise the achievements of its members in academia, experience and individual competence.

There are many ICB courses which range from beginners through to expert levels. A trainee will normally start at the beginner's level and take incrementally more challenging tests throughout their career, although it is not uncommon for students to start at a more intermediate level if they already have relevant experience.

The ICB qualifications attained as a result are enormously beneficial in gaining employment as a bookkeeper. Although the ICB provide the examination body, they don’t teach the courses themselves. With Woodgrove Tutorials, students receive a ‘hard copy’ Course Modules on enrolment (by email and/or post by air mail) and then submit assignments online.
ICB Bookkeeping courses:

- ICB Level I Certificate in Basic Bookkeeping

- ICB Level II Certificate in Manual Bookkeeping

- ICB Level II Certificate in Computerised Bookkeeping

- ICB Level III Diploma in Manual Bookkeeping

Students receive a ‘hard copy’ of the Course Modules on enrolment (by email and/or post by air mail) and then submit assignments online. The end exam for the ICB Level 1 is taken online at your home. External exams for levels II & III can be taken in most countries around the world.
