A range of short course opportunities may be accessed through the Centre for Flexible Education.

Undergraduate courses are undertaken for reasons of personal and/or professional development, and application is welcomed, regardless of previous qualifications.

A selection of these short courses offer formally recognised University credit, which can contribute toward the achievement of the Certificate of Personal and Professional Development when a combination of short courses worth 60 credit points in total have been successfully completed.

This enables individuals to gain formal recognition and if desired, supports application to further study at HE level. Our undergraduate short course listings can be found on the link below.

This list changes regularly so check back for an updated offering.

Whether you are an adult considering University for the first time, seeking professional development, or a community organisation wishing to offer a taster course to your members, the Centre for Flexible Education can advise you on available short courses from a range of subjects across all Ulster Faculties and Schools.

Please contact us if you want to find out any further information about any of the short courses available.


This short course provides students opportunities to demonstrate a range of food inspection competencies to ensure health and consumer protection.
