* Due to demand some of our courses run multiple times within an academic year. Course titles appended with 'A' or 'B' indicate multiple runs of a stand-alone course.

We have tentative plans to run the following in person short courses towards the end of our 2020-21 programme, subject to developments with the coronavirus pandemic.
