CPD Module Calendar

We run our Continuing Professional Development modules throughout the year.

The start dates, teaching dates and assignment deadlines listed below are subject to change, and due to the COVID-19 pandemic face-to-face teaching may need to be moved online or postponed at short notice. A module running is dependent on numbers, but we will keep a "waiting list" and contact you if a new date becomes available in the future.

The closing date for applications for modules is two weeks prior to the module start date.

If you are interested in taking a module, please contact the School directly at msk@essex.ac.uk.

Ongoing enrolment

The following modules do not have a defined start date, or a pre-arranged coursework deadline. If you are interested in taking one of these modules please email msk@essex.ac.uk and let us know what dates you would be interested in doing.
