The course was established in 2000, as the first web-based MSc degree course in Clinical Embryology. There is a new intake of students every October.

Enrolled students are provided with access to use a vast array of journals that are relevant to human assisted reproduction and reproductive biology, and many other relevant areas. These are provided by the University of Leeds Library. Students are also given University email accounts and access to the University Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). All students are assigned a tutor, and another tutor is provided for the research project (Module 6) according to subject.
The course is delivered via distance learning modules by internet, VLE, post and electronic mail. Three residential workshops, each lasting 5 days, will be held over the 2 year duration of the course. The rest of the programme is taken from a distance (i.e. studying at home).
