Short Courses: Career Focussed

KLC offers a series of one to three day courses, which can be a hugely beneficial support for students studying offsite, providing an opportunity to attend additional workshops. These can be helpful to fast track learning in some subject areas, undertake more daunting technical subject matter or simply have the opportunity to network.

Equally these courses are suitable for designers wishing to further develop their skills, enhance their CV’s, keep up-to-date with technology and regulations and keep a competitive edge.
