July Stimulus Free & Funded Short Courses for Autumn 2021

18 August, 2021

MTU is offering free and subsidised modular courses beginning in September 2021 under the Government's July Stimulus initiative.

These shorter, more focused courses from Level 6 - Level 8 are offered in flexible online and blended modes allowing learners to gain valuable skills which can be put into practice in the workplace.

As each modular course is accredited, they can also provide building blocks to a full qualification enabling non-traditional learners to engage with higher education.

Level 6 courses are fully funded for all eligible candidates and the good news is that applicants can register on multiple modular courses if they don’t exceed 30 credits!
