Higher Education Part Time CPD Modules

Myerscough College offers Higher Education single study modules across our entire subject range. They can either be studied for personal interest or as part of a Continued Professional Development (CPD) scheme for employment or membership of an organisation.  (A single 20 credit module will normally equate to approximately 60 hours of CPD.)

The single study modules provide a unique opportunity for part-time flexible study at Higher Education level.
