Short courses

Short courses are usually one subject about a specific topic. Non-Award and Cross-Institutional courses are for academic credit and include assessment, while Masterclasses are not for credit.

Masterclasses and Seminars

We offer a range of professional development Masterclasses, seminars and public lectures across a wide variety of subjects. These classes do not provide academic credit. You can find these on our events website or on the Masterclass webpage.


Some of our subjects are available to be studied as standalone subjects ie. you are not required to be enrolled in a full degree course.

A full list of subjects can be found through our Studyfinder application. To apply please download our Application to study at JCU form.
