IT Learning Centre: Closed courses

We offer over 200 IT courses in a programme open to all University members. We can also offer these as 'closed courses' for groups, where:

  • only your group of staff or students will attend
  • the course is organised at a time to suit you

Usually, closed courses are for groups of between six and 20 participants.

How closed courses work

You identify an area of IT learning that would benefit your group. You talk to us and we agree content, time, place and cost. Then we:

  • deliver the course, usually in our own state-of-the-art IT teaching rooms
  • collect feedback from participants so that you can be sure the learning was effective
  • offer participants post-course support

Topics that closed courses cover

All our courses are listed in our online course booking system. The catalogue provides a list of topics and a summary of each course.

A closed course generally covers the same topics as its corresponding open version. However, for a one-off charge, we can customise the content to fit your specific requirements.

If there is a topic that we don't cover, we can still help. We're experienced at negotiating with external subject experts and course providers and can often arrange a specialised course at favourable rates.

Costs for closed courses

We make a charge to run a closed course. The charging structure is simple: we make a single charge for your whole group. If the course needs to be tailored, we may make an additional one-off charge for the customisation. We can provide a buffet lunch and morning or afternoon refreshments at a small extra cost.

How to book a closed course

We make the process of organising a closed course as easy as possible. Start by looking at the courses available in our course catalogue and then contact us using our enquiry form. We will arrange for one our teachers to talk with you.
