Who should apply
Our Short Courses are suitable for a wide range of individuals who want to acquire new skills, enhance their knowledge, or explore a particular subject in a condensed format. Here are some groups of people who often benefit from short courses:
- Working professionals: Short courses offer an opportunity for professionals to update their skills, stay relevant in their fields, or explore new areas of interest. These courses can provide specialised training, certifications, or practical knowledge that can be immediately applied to their jobs.
- Students: Short courses can supplement traditional education by offering additional learning opportunities outside of the regular curriculum. Students may take short courses to delve deeper into a specific subject, explore interdisciplinary topics, or gain practical skills that complement their degree programs.
- Career changers: Individuals who are considering a career change can benefit from short courses to acquire foundational knowledge in a new field or to gain skills that are in demand. These courses can provide a solid starting point for transitioning into a different career path.
- Lifelong learners: Short courses are ideal for people who have a passion for learning and a desire to continuously acquire new knowledge and skills. These courses allow lifelong learners to explore diverse subjects, discover new interests, and engage in intellectual pursuits.
- Individuals seeking personal development: Short courses can also be taken for personal growth and self-improvement. Courses on topics like counselling, personal development, addiction, or psychology, help improve well-being, boost confidence, and provide practical tools for personal development.
