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, Coding, Design and IT. We offer a range of online IT and computing courses, with interactive online sessions and one-to-one support and some face-to-face classes. Courses combine practical skills with theory, so that you can continue to adapt and expand your knowledge long after completing you course.
