Short Courses

You can now study a select number of individual modules which are components of longer programmes within the School of Business and Humanities.

Each module is a stand-alone 'mini-course' which will earn you academic credits following successful completion of any associated coursework and or exams. It's then possible to accumulate those credits over time, towards a nationally recognised award such as a Higher Certificate or even a full Degree.
