The Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit’ core remit is to conduct high-quality clinical trials. In addition, we have a strong focus on teaching and learning. Our vision is to establish as a centre of excellence for clinical trials training, delivering outstanding training regionally, nationally and internationally.

We offer an annual programme of short-courses which we intend to expand in the future. Our short courses are popular, and we recommend you book in advance to secure your place and take advantage of the reduced early-bird rates. We offer in-person and online options for our courses, as we know that everyone learns differently and has different needs. For full information about our courses, please click the relevant links below.

We have close links with national groups including the UKCRC-registered Clinical Trials Unit Network ( and the MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership (, enabling us to maximise opportunities for teaching and learning.
