Many of our postgraduate modules can be taken as short courses, which particularly suit people who are interested in learning about a particular topic but who don’t want to commit to a PG Diploma or Masters. Some people take one or two modules this way as CPD (continuing professional development) or as a taster for further study. Students who successfully complete modules are normally able to transfer the credits gained if they subsequently decide they would like to continue their studies with one of our PgDip/MSc programmes.
