Short Courses

Many of the modules taught within the Department of Information Studies as part of the MA in Publishing work as stand alone short courses, for those wishing to update professional skills in a particular area. 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 (which is optional for short course students). If the assessment is carried out successfully, the short course module can count towards the Master's degree in the future, should it be pursued.

Timetables are designed to fit part time students, so the courses would usually undertaken one morning or afternoon a week, over the course of a ten week term.
