Star Courses

STAR programmes are short bite-sized courses that help students develop foundational-level knowledge and skills in the field of their choice. Although the courses are short they are packed with high quality content that helps students further their learning and earn credits.

These courses are excellent for testing the waters to assess whether a particular field or domain is suitable for the student without the expectation for any long-term commitment. They are fun and interactive courses that allow students to experiment with fields that are of their interest or simply inquisitive about.
