HERC offers two courses in health economics for external participants.


Due to circumstances beyond our control, HERC has taken the reluctant decision to cancel both of the March 2020 short courses.

  • 1-Day Course ‘Introduction to Health Economic Evaluation’, which was due to take place at The Queen’s College, Oxford on Tuesday, 24th March 2020.
  • 3-Day Course ‘Applied Methods of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis’, which was due to take place at St Catherine’s College, Oxford on the 25th-27th March 2020.

The next 3-Day course is still due to take place on the 8th – 10th July 2020. Booking for this course will be delayed until further notice.

The next 1-Day course is expected to run in December 2020 and will be held in combination with the 3-Day Course. Booking for the December courses will be opened nearer to the time.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience caused, and to thank all those who have been affected by the current situation. Your patience and understanding during what is a very difficult and uncertain time for us all is much appreciated.

HERC is looking forward to welcoming you at future short courses in Oxford.
