Short Courses are generally between 2 to 4 weeks in duration and run during the winter and summer university breaks. They are a great option if you want to add an international element to your degree and have a spare elective!

Studying overseas has given me so many new insights and experiences. It really opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on the relevance of my degree and the many different paths I can take after graduating. I would highly recommend a semester abroad.”
