Short Courses and Certificates of Competence

Writtle University College offers a variety of short courses from professionally accredited for technical skills to craft and hobby courses.

Our short courses are offered throughout the year; generally the more professional courses are available during the working week with the leisure courses running in the evenings and weekends. Some courses are seasonal and others run more frequently.

Short courses are a great way of enhancing your career prospects by improving key skills, contributing towards Continued Professional Development (CPD) or even as a very unique gift!

Special Education Needs and Disability - Short Courses

Prospective students who have a learning difficulty and/or disability that may affect their studies should inform the University College as soon as possible. Appropriate reasonable adjustments could then be considered. It may also be possible to organise additional learning/study support (such as note-taking or communicator support) through Writtle University College's Learner Services Department. However, please note that this would be dependent on availability of suitably qualified staff and (as short courses are run on a full-cost basis) the costs of that support being met directly by the student or their sponsor.

For further details please contact Learner Services on or 01245 424200 ext 25742.
