The modules are taught over the course of one term, and usually comprise of 30 taught hours of lectures and practicals, followed by a coursework assessment or exam (which is optional for short course students). If the assessment is completed successfully, the module credit can count towards a future Master's degree.

Modules currently offered as Short Courses include:

Acceptance onto the module is by agreement by the tutor. Please contact the module tutor for further information.

Many other modules from taught programmes offered by UCL Department of Information Studies (DIS) are available as short courses. Details about fees and how to apply are also available on that page.
