University Short Courses

Graduate Centre for Management (GCM)

The GCM embraces the opportunities for skills enhancement towards life-long learning and the creation of a transformative environment in which accessibility, equity and the redress of past inequalities can be addressed.

Our aim is to provide affordable, quality education based on the platform of academic and vocational learning, with special emphasis on executive management and related training that will encourage portability through national and international co-operative relationships.

Short courses are available as scheduled or on request, on campus or in-house, for individuals or corporate and institutional clients with twelve or more participants and may be customised from our many National Diploma offerings to meet personal, management, human resource and skills development needs.

Our courses are offered on block release, full-time or part-time basis and are facilitated by qualified and experienced academics.

In addition our HODs, Subject Specialists, Industrial Psychologist and our Human Resource, Training and Development Practitioners are available, by appointment, for consultation.

What CPUT Short Course students say...

I met beautiful people, learn about other cultures. Learning English at CPUT was such a great experience that I will never ever forget. Those who want to learn English in Cape while having fun, CPUT is here for you. I am sure you will not regret it at all.

English for Foreign Students course by the Graduate Centre for Management (GCM)

I chose the short course at CPUT, because I am a mom of a two year old. Doing a correspondance course just wouldn’t work for me. CPUT offers evening classes, which enabled me to attend classes for 6 months. I absolutely enjoyed attending the classes, I also learnt a lot and made friends within the similar fields and with similar interest. Thank you CPUT and the SCM team.
