Covid-19 update

Due to the current Covid restrictions all SRUC short courses due to take place in January at all SRUC campuses have been cancelled. For courses beyond this we are currently awaiting further guidance.

SRUC will resume our short course offering in line with the government guidance and our website will be updated with future course dates as soon as it's safe to do so. Customers with existing bookings in February and March will be contacted directly by the administration team to advise if their course can go ahead. Customers can expect to hear from us two weeks prior to commencement of their course.

Our courses are delivered regularly at five of our SRUC campuses but can also be delivered on customer premises. Explore the areas below to find your course.
