Everything To Know About University of Johannesburg Short Course and The Application Process

Most people usually go for a full degree or diploma before getting started while others go the other way round – taking a short course. These courses are provided by a good number of universities and colleges, including the University of Johannesburg, and have helped grow people’s skills and knowledge in their chosen field of learning, especially those who do not want to invest 4 – 5 years of their life for a degree or diploma before getting started.

Apart from the fact that short courses give room for individuals to explore new areas of interest, they also play vital roles in fostering professional development and knowledge refreshment.

What Is A Short Course?

A short course is a learning programme that provides individuals a particular skill training or combined content within a short period of time. Unlike a regular university course, people who do short courses are taught more practical sides of things and less theory.

Through short courses, people develop specialized skills, gain fundamental knowledge in a specialized field, and even enhance their CV. Some institutions equip learners for exploits in a particular field within a couple of months while others take a little longer than that. In a nutshell, short courses help people to acquire valuable skills for continuing career growth.
