Please click on the course titles, below, to be taken to the course description pages. You won't be able to book via these pages, but there you will find information on the dates, times, and a bit about the content of the course. 
Please note: The SSRMP cannot provide software that may be needed to take part in some of the courses, below. Where software is needed we have marked it, below, so that prospective students can arrange a licence for that software, themselves. Please do not book onto a module with us if you are unable to get access to the appropriate software licence.

How to book

You can make a request to book onto one of the courses above by completing our booking form:

Request a booking

Once you have done this, our team will direct you to a payment link.
Once you have paid, our team will enrol you on to the course on the university booking system, and onto Moodle - the online repository for course materials. This may take a day or two. 

In the event that your course is taught in a computer lab (which is unlikely, this year since all of our teaching is being done online), you will receive a guest login. Guest access to wireless networks is also available in University buildings.

Please note that the above information relates ONLY to external participants.
If you are associated with Cambridge University (have a Raven ID), please book via our internal booking system.
