The year has kicked off with some pace and now may be the time that you’re looking at professional development opportunities to advance your career in 2023. The industry specific short courses offering at RGU could be the perfect match.

Developed in response to filling future skills gaps, these short courses have been built with flexibility in mind to allow learners to study independently at times that suit their work and personal commitments.

Online learning doesn’t have to mean solus learning - thanks to its dynamic and supporting online learning environment, students can interact with fellow learners and subject experts to exchange ideas.

A former short course student said: “This is just the kind of robust and high-quality course which Robert Gordon University can be relied upon to deliver to equip the student with practical skills that are highly relevant to industry and for use in the global workplace.”

Better yet, the courses are available at a significantly reduced fee of £350 (that’s 25% of the standard university price) with a limited number of places eligible for full funding.
