We offer high quality professional development courses that enhance skills, extend knowledge and challenge thinking.

Whether you need to develop or refresh your skills, our programmes and short courses are tailored to your academic and professional development to enhance career progression.


We are one of the largest providers of Masters and Postgraduate programme options in the United Kingdom. Our part time Masters awards are flexible and designed for busy professionals. In addition, our flagship full time Masters suite offers study in a research and practice-rich environment, in an international city.

The flexibility of our programmes enables you to choose single units or a programme of study, to fit in with your own timescales and professional demands. It is also possible to gain accreditation of prior experience/learning as part of your Masters degree.
