Short courses & professional development

We offer highly flexible, personalised, negotiated courses to best meet your specific needs, circumstances and aspirations.

All courses enable you to work and study, minimise time away from work and lead to University qualifications.  These short courses are also 'modules' in Work Based, higher education qualifications which means they build on your experience, integrate theory and practice and ensure learning is applied to work, making a difference to you and your organisation. We place great emphasis on supporting you to manage your learning; we act as learning facilitators rather than instructors! Find out more about Our Approach.

Our courses are classed as 'post-experience' or 'post-graduate' which means that you may or may not have formal qualifications to apply as we take account of all your prior learning and experience. 

Courses are usually delivered by blended learning which combines online study, fully supported by our tutors/facilitators with some mandatory attendance at face-to-face workshops.

New for 2016/17 is Online+ where you may be able to complete your course without mandatory attendance at Lancaster.
