How-To Take a Short Course as a University of Edinburgh Student.

We've created this video for all University of Edinburgh students thinking about taking a Short Course with us in Term 1.

Did you know that if you're a full-time matriculated student at the University of Edinburgh you are entitled to 33% off any of the Centre for Open Learning's Short Courses? 

Of course that's just one of the many reasons to take a Short Course with us!

Here's a few more... 

  • Short Courses are open to anyone (aged 16 and over) which means our classes attract a diverse mix of people. From students to professionals to retirees, each student brings a different perspective to the discussion. 
  • You could dive into a subject that compliments (or completely differs!) from your degree programme.
  • All Term 1 courses are being taught online at times which suit your lifestyle, meaning you can learn from the comfort of home. 
  • You can build your CV or increase your employability by learning or improving a language or by taking a skills based course.  

In the video below, Director of Open Studies James Mooney and Languages For All Director Thomas Chaurin discuss the benefits of Short Courses for University of Edinburgh students in more detail.
