Creative short courses


Our programme offers introductory and professional-level courses delivered by expert tutors and conveniently held at our City Campus.

It includes daytime, evening and Saturday classes throughout the year, as well as intensive courses during July and August.

Attending a short course can be a life and career-changing experience.

We've taught marketing managers how to improve their design skills, a parole officer who went on to become a professional tutu maker and parents who've become children's book illustrators.

We've welcomed professionals looking to enhance their CV, designers who've progressed to Masters courses and amateurs who've simply wanted to have a go and try something new.

So why not join them and become part of NTU's creative community?

Our courses can develop your creative thinking skills or introduce you to new ways of working with materials.

Our focus is on using the talents of our teaching and technical staff to help open doors into amazing futures.
