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.
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.
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.
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.
