Applied and Professional Ethics

Our flexible and supportive online courses explore ethical issues raised by a range of professional contexts – allowing you to discover how ethical principles are applied as we navigate increasingly complex working environments.

This online distance learning course allows to you examine current issues, debates, and theories around the application of ethics in professional settings. Using a blend of theory and real-life case studies, you’ll gain a critical understanding of issues such as trust, integrity, privacy, consent and professional responsibility.

Our postgraduate diploma is a great way to expand your knowledge and gain a recognised qualification, but is shorter in length than our Masters degree. You’ll study the same taught content as on the Applied and Professional Ethics degree, but won’t submit a dissertation.
