About

The MSt in Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford offers high quality training in practical ethics through flexible, part-time learning.  

Overview

About this Master's

  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid
