Which type of short course should I study?

There are typically 3 different types of short course you can study with us:

  1. Bootcamps: We offer a range of Skills Bootcamps, with some fully funded. You could be looking to progress your career, or switch to a new one. These bootcamps will give you the skills, while fitting around your life.
  2. Microcredentials: Usually taken from existing modules within a Masters, they can be used as standalone credentials, with some also counting as academic credits towards a full Masters
  3. Continuing professional development (CPD): Non credit-CPD courses can help you stay up to date in your current field or for you to study something that has always interested you.
