Short courses and CPD

Develop personal, professional skills and knowledge, enhance your employability and facilitate career progression by completing a short course at Ulster University.


Our undergraduate short courses (from 5 to 20 credits) can be taken for personal enjoyment or professional development and do not require any previous qualifications or experience.

Once you have accumulated 60 credits, you will be awarded an undergraduate Certificate in Continuing Personal and Professional Development.


Our postgraduate short courses are offered in a range of subject areas for professional development and career enhancement.

A number of these courses are recognised by professional bodies and meet CPD requirements.

Courses (from 5 to 30 credits) can be taken individually or combined towards a Postgraduate Certificate of Professional Development (60 credits).
