Short courses for students and staff

Discounts are available for courses on the University’s 2022/2023 short course programme.

The programme offers courses across a range of subjects, including languages, business, history and the arts. 

While most courses run over 10 weeks on campus, there are also some options to take an online course or to get a taste of a subject over a day or two.  

All courses are taught by our experienced, knowledgeable and friendly tutors who are passionate about their subject area and supporting students through all stages of their learning.

Courses are open to all, both within the University and the wider community.
