What are the differences between short and taster courses?

  • Participants who complete Homeless and Inclusion Health as a short course receive a certificate of attendance, but they are not assessed and therefore do not receive UCL credit.
  • Participants who successfully complete Homeless and Inclusion Health as a taster course, and pass the assessment at the first attempt, receive a Grade Report and are eligible to receive UCL credit (APL credit). Taster credits must be applied to a postgraduate programme within five academic years of taking the taster course. More information for Taster course students about UCL credits
  • Both short and taster courses involve attending all of the teaching and seminars.
