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.


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!

The fact that this was a work based qualification really appealed to me' says Annie 'I didn't want something that was purely research based so being able to accredit a work project with an academic qualification was perfect'.
