Our Short Courses

Intensive Learning Opportunities

We offer a wide range of short courses to complement our three and twelve month programs. designed to convey key approaches and techniques about a specific subject, short courses have been a mainstay of the School since 2007.

Short courses offer structured and practical instruction in specific techniques or approaches, and are designed to give you the skills you need to master the techniques on offer independently, and at your own pace, after the workshop. If you would benefit from a structured program of home study consider one or more of our Certificate Courses. For a fully structured, guided and moderated year of technical training and creative development ask about our Diploma Program.

All of our short courses are open to anyone, however they are best taken in conjunction with a learning program which starts with an appropriate foundation course.  If you would like to discuss the best learning program for your needs, simply contact the School who will put you in touch with a tutor.

Our short courses include:
