Short courses and CPD

On-campus, work-based and distance learning courses

Whether you want to learn more about a specific area relevant to your career, work towards a university qualification, or develop custom-made training solutions for your organisation, our short CPD (Continuing Professional Development) training and development courses can help.

We develop our courses and training with researchers and industry experts to meet your needs and ambitions. We’re continuously developing new programmes, ensuring they're relevant, up-to-date and practical.

Work towards a professional qualification

Many of our short courses and CPD training programmes carry academic credits and award professional accreditation. Studying a short course with us can accelerate your career or help you build up a university qualification.

You can study our short courses on campus, giving you access to our facilities, equipment and resources. Or you can study through distance learning, online at home or at work. We support you to fit your learning in around your work and home life commitments by delivering courses at different times, days and venues.

We offer many of our short courses as individual units. You can choose the units that interest you and build up credit over time to work towards a University certificate or award. You can also study a short course without undertaking accredited assessment. This means the course will be non-credit bearing and won't count towards a university qualification.

The links established with the University are assisting the company on its journey of continuous improvement and growth.
