Bespoke: Courses for Groups

About Bespoke

We can offer a range of Bespoke Academic Courses for your group.

The Centre for Open Learning is dedicated to offering Bespoke Academic Courses that deliver stimulating and innovative learning for all students and course participants.

We welcome enquiries from other higher educational institutions - both within the UK and internationally, that may wish to co-host tailored courses or continuing professional development (CPD) courses at the University of Edinburgh.

We also encourage enquiries from government departments, agencies and public bodies such as Police Scotland etc.

Working Together

We can work with you to create a new course to suit your group’s development requirements. If you prefer, we are happy to co-teach courses led by faculty from your own institution.

We can help you design a tailored package which can include academic tuition, accommodation, field trips, and site visits, as well as an organised social programme. A wide range of subjects taught by specialist lecturers is available.

Student Experience

Outside of the classroom, optional social activities can be added so that your group can enjoy the beautiful and vibrant city of Edinburgh. There is scope to have activities tailored solely to the needs and specifications of your group or to get involved with shared activities alongside other groups.

Student Support

While you are studying at the Centre for Open Learning (COL), you will have access to a range of support to help you get the most out of your studies.
