Standalone modules

Gain additional knowledge and academic skills to apply in your workplace or further your career..

It can be difficult to keep up with the latest developments and further your education, whilst balancing work or other commitments. As an introduction to an area, you could instead take a standalone module that is shorter than a full programme yet still just as rigorous in educational terms.
