Professional Development is an invaluable personal investment, allowing you to update your skills and prepare you for greater responsibilities. Professional Development courses can boost your confidence, strengthen your professional credibility and help you to become more creative in tackling new challenges. 

Professional Development is rapidly becoming mandatory for professionals working in the healthcare or life sciences sectors. In the School of Life & Health Sciences, our Executive and Professional Development experts are rapidly expanding our portfolio of courses to fulfil these workplace requirements.


Our courses are offered across a range of subject areas and vary in duration and complexity - from a three-hour workshop to a 200-hour professional qualification. Subject areas we cover are as follows:
An Aston University Certificate is awarded for all accredited courses. In addition to the courses that we currently offer, it is possible to arrange bespoke courses on request.
