This is a university that’s relevant today and focused on tomorrow. A university that never stands still and is never complacent – just like you.

We care about your continuing professional development (CPD) so as well as part-time degrees, we run innovative and enlightening short courses – both on-campus and online.

We offer CPD modules and short courses on the most cutting-edge issues, including new legislation – for instance IFRS 16 Leases (an International Financial Reporting Standard) – as well as some of the pressing issues of our time, such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
