Open Learning

Our Open Learning short courses are open to all adults, regardless of age or qualifications, whether for career development, personal growth or simply to satisfy a love for learning.

Postgraduate Short Courses

Study a module as a short course

We’ve made it easy to study for a masters module as a short course.

We’ll store your results, just in case you want to work towards a qualification such as a PG Cert or a PG Dip and you can download a transcript at any time. If you complete only one module you will earn a Certificate of Attendance.

Master’s Degree Modules 2017-18

We have listed some of the proposed modules on offer in the 2017-18 academic year.

Maybe you are nervous of returning to study after a break or perhaps you feel daunted by the prospect of studying for a full Master’s degree? Or maybe you have a particular interest in a specific area such as special needs?  We understand the many demands on your time, so we’ve made it easy to study for a module as a short course*. Studying for a single module provides a cost-effective way to accommodate your personal and work commitments.

Sometimes we have to withdraw of amend modules so please contact our postgraduate team if you would like to apply for a module as a short course.
