Professional learners and CPD

In addition to our undergraduate and postgraduate distance learning degree courses, we offer a range of short courses or single modules for professional development. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at Leicester can give you and your organisation the opportunity to develop new skills and expertise, making you stand out from the competition.

Our CPD courses are relevant across a range of sectors and professions including Management, Finance, Healthcare and Teaching. Choose from conferences, short courses over a few days or long courses studied over a few months. Some courses are accredited and credit bearing, such as the Defending Your Organisation Against Fraud and Corruption course, while others are non-credit bearing such as our Language for Business courses. Study is often part-time and online but can be on campus or within your workplace.

You can join one of our existing courses as an individual or we can design a bespoke course to support your workforce's professional development.
