Why study a short course

Our short courses are designed to fit around your busy schedule, offering flexible ways of studying.

Our short courses are flexible and taught in a variety of modes. From face-to-face modules taught over four days, to fully online learning, our short courses and micro-credentials are designed to suit your needs. We are developing new short courses regularly to ensure our portfolio has something for everyone.

When you study a short course with us, you will join a global community of like-minded students. Whether you're looking to enhance your skills or retrain in a new career, our short courses can provide you with the skills you need.

Flexible schedule

Our short courses allow you to work around existing commitments, offering flexible study options such as online learning or long weekend intensive block learning.


Academic support

You will be supported by academics, tutors and support staff throughout your course. Led by our academics, our short courses offer the same quality of teaching as our full degrees.

Global connections

You will become part of our alumni community and build a network of likeminded professionals on your course that will help you navigate your next steps in your career.


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 flexible Skills Bootcamps that allow you to gain skills for life alongside your existing commitments. Some of our Skills Bootcamps are free to study, allowing you to upskill to progress your career.
  2. Microcredentials: Microcredentials are short courses that, on successful completion, will provide you with a number of academic credits. You can use these credits towards further study at postgraduate level.
  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.
