Short courses - Covid-19 response
In response to the changed circumstances following the Covid-19 outbreak, we are in the process of reviewing our short course offer and determining how the different courses lend themselves to online content or a blended offering. As this process will take some time to complete, we have created a table to provide you with an overview of our short course offer for the remainder of this academic year. Please note these may be subject to change.
