Short courses

Cliff College offers a variety of short courses, some of which complement the current student curriculum, and, all of which are open to anyone  whether you are currently a Cliff student or not. Cliff College Certificates can be obtained by attendance and the submission of academic assessment. All courses are open for audit. They are an ideal way to explore the college life, to be refreshed, or to learn new skills. Why not take a Short Course here at Cliff this academic year?


In June each year we host our very successful and growing 'Summer School'. In 2014 over 50 people joined us here on site, and we have capacity for 75 participants on our one week programme - 15th-19th June 2015, with a brand new accommodation block currently being built.

You might be contemplating a course here at Cliff. Then our Summer School is one way to get to know the College and gear up for your studies. Are you on a Cliff course already and want further Biblical knowledge? Are you studying as a Methodist Local Preacher, or just want a refresher course for your worship and preaching? You might even just want to come on a study retreat to beautiful Derbyshire. If any of this sounds like you, why not join us in 2015? Click here to read more about the 2015 Summer School which has multiple streams of teaching available for you to choose during the week; these options will be published online in September.
