Short Courses

High quality, accredited courses which can build into a qualification

Accredited short courses to learn key concepts, ideas, tools and techniques to apply at work


Our short courses carry credits at Higher Education level 6 and 7. They have been designed to minimise time off work and provide a mix of face-to-face sessions and interactive web-based learning; the format varies depending on the course.  Taught by supportive staff you will also benefit by networking and learning from other professionals.


A first degree is not essential as experience and aptitude count, although if you are new to studying or perhaps returning to study after a break then you may want to take a look our module ‘Developing as an Independent Learner’.  This short course will help build your confidence and guide and support you study at postgraduate level.


If you can demonstrate prior learning in any of the subject areas you can apply for credits through a process called the Accreditation of Prior Learning; this can ‘fast-track’ you to achieving a qualification.


Most of our short courses are free-standing but are also building blocks in postgraduate qualifications, so you can start with one course and build to a full Postgraduate Certificates or Masters Degree from one of the UK’s top universities!

I think the course is very job related and therefore gives you academic grounding while remaining useful to you in your day to day role.
