CIMA course recently added to list of top 50 online courses.

News - September 25th 2018

In it's recently updated list of the 50 top massive open online courses (MOOC's), Class Central have included CIMA's 'The Musculoskeletal System: The Science of Staying Active Into Old Age' course.

This free online course has been developed in partnership with MRC-Arthritis Research UK and is aimed at giving students a greater understanding of why our bones, joints and muscles function less well as we age, and discover how best to live well as we get older.

It is designed for patients, carers and people who lead active lives and would appreciate knowing how their lifestyle is likely to affect their long-term health. It is also hoped that it may inspire more people to study or research musculoskeletal ageing. No previous biological experience is needed.

The course is also ideal for those from a non-biological background who may be interested in studying or researching musculoskeletal ageing at postgraduate level. For more information see our 

MRes and PhD training pages on our website

Inclusion in the list of the top 50 MOOC's is warmly welcomed, particularly due to the ranking of courses being based on reviews from previous students.
