Units and Short Courses: What’s the difference?

You can study single CPD units to develop your professional skills or combine a number of units to form a degree course, such as a Master’s.

Short courses tend to be standalone courses that are designed to help you develop your expertise but which you can’t put towards a degree course.

Please note: There are different requirements for each unit/short course, for example, you may need accreditation by a professional body to join a course. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss the requirements for the unit/short course you are considering.

Levels

When you take a CPD unit, you’ll study at a specific level of learning and cover a specific topic.

Level 5 units are the academic equivalent of diploma level, level 6 units are at Bachelor’s degree level, and level 7 units are at Master’s degree level.

Hours of learning

Each CPD unit you study covers a particular number of learning hours. A 10-credit unit equates to 100 hours of student effort.

These hours include face-to-face contact with a tutor in a one-to-one or group setting, reading and researching time, completing study tasks, online learning, and preparation and completion of an assessment.

Awarded credits

For each unit of study you complete, you’ll receive a number of credits. These credits relate to the length and depth of study involved.

You’ll need 60 credits to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), 120 credits to achieve a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip), and 180 credits for a Master’s degree.
