Short Courses

Our short courses offer many ways to study

Short courses are an inexpensive and flexible way to build towards the vocation you want or a good way to expand your personal learning and professional development.

Short courses can be taken in two ways:

For the Joy of Learning (Audit)

This option means there is no coursework or assignments but full participation in the class.

  • Undergraduate course Fee: £90

For more advanced learning (Credit)

Classes can also be taken for NTC credit (dependent on completing successfully the coursework or assignments) without committing to a University of Manchester programme.
