Short courses and CPD

The University offers short courses spanning across a range of subject specialisms that support continuing professional development for working people. This allows individuals to top-up their knowledge or learn something new whilst fitting studies around work or other commitments.

We can also provide bespoke corporate programmes for organisations that can either be accredited or non-accredited, with the option to tailor an accreditation proposal for any in-house training programmes, working with businesses to apply them effectively in the workplace.

Through a collaborative approach, our team can design specific courses that meet each organisation's current frameworks and strategic objectives to maximise return on investment. Our approach to relationship management and quality assurance puts our clients and their staff at the core of programme decisions.
