All our short courses focus on changing practice in health and social care – providing learners with the insight and skill to tackle the most pressing issues in the field. Students can study whenever they want, wherever they have access to a computer.
Our short courses are all part time. They are aimed at practitioners, carers or service users in health and social care, as well as those who are simply interested in the topic.
Learners will develop skills and knowledge through fully online interactive and multimedia materials that bring together the latest research, policy and practice. Our learning guides provide a structured programme of study activities guiding students through audio-visual case study material and topical discussion.
All study is self directed. There are no tutorials to attend or online forums to participate in.

All our health and social care short courses are developed with reference to the current agenda and equip students with new skills and knowledge for the latest professional challenges.
Statements of participation for a CPD portfolio or CV are available upon completion of the course. Learners who have studied enough short courses may decide to complete an assessment module to receive university credit for their course work.
Most students on our short courses are sponsored by employers from either NHS Trusts or Local Authorities.
