Short courses

A short course is a period of learning, which does not lead to a qualification as described in the University’s Undergraduate or Postgraduate Awards Framework. Short courses do not lead to a nationally recognised higher education award, as defined in the QAA’s Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ).

The processes for the approval of a short course are designed to allow schools to respond to commercial opportunities, whilst ensuring that academic standards and the quality of learning are not compromised.

The approval process differentiates between courses that offer credit and those that do not, it also draws necessary distinctions between the two in terms of the level of central University approval required.
