Short Courses

IHE Delft conducts a wide range of short, intensive and highly specialized courses which are aimed at upgrading and refreshing the knowledge and skills of mid-career professional and senior experts.

Short courses are meant for professionals – or groups of professionals – with a specific area of interest and a limited amount of time. The focus and content of short courses vary from specialised and technical matters to challenges and approaches in management. Didactical methods used in these short courses include lectures, individual or group exercises in the classroom, behind the computer, or in the laboratory.

Fieldwork, excursions and field visits to relevant sites often are a part of a short course, allowing the participants to come into contact with practical examples of the theory offered. Through case studies, role-plays and workshops, content is made more interactive, and experience that the participants already have is shared.

Admission Criteria

You should at least have a Bachelor Degree in a relevant field of study, some years of working experience and a good command of the English language.

KOP and MSP Fellowships

On 1 July 2017 the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) entered a new phase as a new programme under the name Kennisontwikkelings programma (KOP). KOP aims to advance the development of the capacity, knowledge and quality of both individuals and institutions in higher and vocational education. In the first KOP round there will be scholarships for short courses. The MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP) also offers scholarships to professionals for short courses at IHE Delft. 

The scholarships are awarded in a competitive selection to highly motivated professionals who are in a position to introduce the newly-acquired skills and knowledge into their employing organization.

Read more about the upcoming fellowship deadline in October 2017.

For fellowships, other than KOP and MSP, use Nuffic's grantfinder.

Examination/Assessment

For several short courses ECTS credit points can be earned. Credit points can only be earned if  you take part in the assessment of the short course and obtain a pass mark. If you return to IHE Delft within 4 years after completion of the short course to follow a full MSc programme, you may receive exemption for this short course/module.  Taking part in the assessments is not compulsory. The additional costs for an assessment are € 250.

If you wish to take part in the assessment, you are adviced to consult the applicable course coordinator for the exact method and timing of the assessment.. 

Tailor-made training

Tailor-made training caters directly to the needs of each client. This means that courses can be organized for groups of various sizes, from one or several organizations, sectors or regions. They can be designed to upgrade knowledge and skills, to introduce new technologies, or to strengthen sector performance, to name but a few options. Read more here.
