Short courses in computing

Covid-19 update: The learning doesn’t have to stop, join our online community. We are aiming to deliver courses remotely until further notice. Live tutor support and virtual lessons will take place during advertised teaching hours. The classes are taught in small groups, so you’ll get lots of support from your tutor.

City Short Courses offers a wide range of hands-on, commercially relevant and up-to-date courses in Computer Science and Design. All courses are tutor-led with scope for guided practice in class and informative feedback. Students can study one course or follow a flexible programme of study, based on their chosen career path and perceived skills gaps. Theory is covered where it supports the practical emphasis, thereby combining the best practice of City teaching and training in the corporate sector.
