Short courses are units of study which are delivered by the College but do not lead to an award of the College, such as a degree or postgraduate certificate.  Short courses may be assessed or non-assessed.  It may be appropriate for some assessed courses to lead to the award of academic credit (i.e. ECTS).

  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
