Further taught courses - including MOOCs

Facebook Twitter

Some taught courses that you might be interested in. Also some MOOCs (massive open online courses). MOOCs can be a good way to plug gaps in your knowledge/skills.

Some also offer great opportunities to study online and interact with people from similar or different backgrounds around the world.

Don't be put off by the fact that they are (usually) free. That doesn't mean they are low quality. Some are quite brief (not as detailed say as a module on the MSc), others go into more depth.

It would be lovely to hear your experiences of trying MOOCs.
