High quality, accredited modules which can build into a qualification.

Accredited modules teach key concepts, ideas, tools and techniques to apply at work.

Our modules carry credits at Higher Education level 6 and 7. They have been designed to minimise time off work and provide a mix of face-to-face sessions and interactive web-based learning; the format varies depending on the module.  Taught by supportive staff you will also benefit by networking and learning from other professionals.

A first degree is not essential as experience and aptitude count.

If you can demonstrate prior learning in any of the subject areas you can apply for credits through a process called the Accreditation of Prior Learning; this can ‘fast-track’ you to achieving a qualification.

Most of our short modules are free-standing but are also building blocks in postgraduate qualifications, so you can start with one module and build to a full Postgraduate Certificate or Masters Degree from one of the UK's top universities!
