Short courses have gained prestige in Education as exceptional opportunities to learn about a specific subject in a short period of time. UCAM short courses program includes a wide range of courses in several fields and help students to acquire new competencies and skills or to enhance the existing skills.

Courses consist of 60 teaching hours over a three week period and are taught using a dual learning method which combines theoretical and practical insights.

UCAM short courses are focused on “just in time” and “just enough” teaching in order to meet student needs and to match the requirements of the labour market in terms of knowledge and skills.

Reasons to Enroll in a Short Course:
• To learn about other fields of study
• To pursue further studies in those fields
• To enhance existing skills and abilities
• To expand career paths
