Due to popularity, places on all of the above are confirmed on a "first paid, first serve basis". As with all university short courses, the normal minimum age for enrolment is 18.

Short courses and CPD events are not academically or professionally validated, accredited, or approved (unless specifically mentioned) and therefore do not, in themselves, lead to either an academic or professional award. For CPD purposes, participants successfully completing a short-course or CPD event can be awarded a certificate of attendance.
