Prospective students at the University of Brighton

Short courses and evening classes

We run short courses, workshops and evening classes in a wide range of subjects throughout the year. Many of our courses are accredited by professional bodies, and present an opportunity to update your existing professional skills or develop new ones.

Our short courses can be customised to meet the specific training needs of your organisation and delivered on your premises.

You can also transfer credits from short courses towards an MSc or other qualification, or do the courses purely for your own professional development.

Our short courses are listed on our training and development pages, and on the relevant school or faculty websites.
