Short Courses and Certificates of Competence

Writtle University College offers a variety of short courses, ideal for gaining accreditation for technical skills, specialist crafts or as a hobby.

Our courses are available on weekends, as well as evenings during the working week so participants may have the choice to study at a time which better suits their needs. Short courses are a great way of enhancing your career prospects by improving key skills, contributing towards Continued Professional Development (CPD) opportunities or even to send to someone 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 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 Short Course Training or Learner Services directly (by emailing or telephone 01245 424200 ext. 25742).

In many cases our courses can be adapted for a specific group or business and delivered at your chosen location. For more information on bespoke bookings please contact Michelle Williams on 01245 424287.
