Can I still sign up for the course if I know I am not going to be able to attend one of the sessions?

This should not be an issue if you have informed the course tutor about your expected absence. There may be courses that require full attendance due to the nature of the topic, the best way to confirm this would be to contact the programme leader or course tutor, contact details should be available on the website page for that specific short course. If there are no contact details on the webpage, please contact and they will ask the course tutor to contact you.

Is the course refundable? Can I cancel my booking?

You may request to cancel your course booking - your cancellation must be made in writing via email or over the phone, at least 3 weeks before the start date of your chosen course in order to receive a full refund.

This notification timeframe has been put in place to protect the remaining students, allowing the University ample time to recruit further students for each course to ensure minimal course cancellations occurring as a result of low student capacity.

If you are unable to attend your chosen course either in advance or during the course, due to unforeseen health or personal issues, you must contact to confirm these details and we will discuss other optional dates or outline a possible refund process. Please note these cancellation requests will be dealt with on an individual basis.

If you wish to cancel your place on a course, once the programme has commenced, regrettably we will be unable to offer a refund. Please consider the point above if this is due to medical/personal reasons.
