Short Course Training
The short course is an extra academic activity that will enrich your experience. It gives you combined content or specific skills training in a short period of time. Short courses often lean towards the more practical side of things and have less theory than a university course – this gives you a more hands-on experience within your field of interest. This is very useful especially if you are looking for a job or better opportunities.
Why should I take a short course?
- You are interested in a field of study, other than the one you learn of at university. The high advantage of short courses is that they can be from technically any field, regardless of what you study right now. You can consider your chosen short course as an aid to specialize further or see your study from a different perspective or you can take an intensive look at a different field you see as a hobby.
- You work in an interdisciplinary field. You may have studied a certain field, but now the company you work in is specialized in a field where many disciplines are interrelated. This is highly possible nowadays.
- You want a new element in your CV. The short course is an extra academic activity that will find its place in your CV and will enrich your experience. This is very useful especially if you are looking for a job or better opportunities.
