Our Online Short Courses allow you to study some of our most popular courses without travelling to the college.

In each live class you will join the group online for presentations, demonstrations, discussions and activities. You will also have access to a private online workspace where you will be expected to upload your work between classes. The tutor will save various learning resources here too - for your reference during the course to help you develop.

Online Short Courses are perfect if you live outside of London, overseas, or if you want to be able to join a course from your home, office or anywhere in the world with an internet connection. The courses are designed to be flexible - you’ll log in to a live virtual classroom each week and interact with the tutor and other students.
