These come from the Certificate and Diploma programmes, allowing you advanced study without the need to undertake a long programme. Usually taking around 8 weeks to complete, these are perfect for filling any skill gaps you may have. Choose from:

  • Designing and Developing Digital and Blended Learning Solutions
