We run a mixture of face-to-face courses at the King's Buildings campus, and online courses. Our online courses are run via the Blackboard Collaborate platform and provide the same level of interaction with instructors, the same great learning material, and are run on the same cloud-based virtual machines. Please check the location of your course before booking.

If you don't see the course you are interested online in please register your interest in one here and we will get back to you as soon as a new course goes live.
