Short courses

Many of our distance-learning and online degree programmes are split into courses or modules that can be studied individually. Short courses are useful for continuing professional development, refreshing your knowledge, or exploring a new area of interest.

You can study individual modules and courses from many of our programmes online.

If you later decide that you would like to continue your studies, you may be able to transfer the credit of any completed modules towards a full qualification. Modules are made up of a number of credits. One UK credit equates to a notional 10 hours of study.

The member institutions that make up the University of London offer a diverse range of subjects, including: Computing, Business and Management, Law, Economics and Human Rights, and many more.
