    • For courses with pre-work, once you have booked on the course, you will receive an enrolment invitation link to access the pre-work in Canvas. This is generally included in the booking confirmation email as a self-enrolment link.
    • The link for the live interactive online sessions and joining instructions are sent out with the booking confirmation and reminder emails.
    • If you need to cancel your place, please do so via CoSY no later than 72 hours before the course is due to start, as stated in the T&Cs.



  • For online courses, your attendance is confirmed based on joining the session(s) on time and staying for the duration (unless otherwise agreed with the tutor in advance). For classroom-based courses, your attendance is confirmed by you adding your name and signature to the register. Your deposit will be refunded (if applicable) provided you have fully attended the course – see the T&Cs. 
  • Once your attendance has been confirmed, you will receive an email with a link to our post-course evaluation survey at the end of the course. This will help us monitor and improve the quality of future courses. You will not receive your attendance certificate until the survey has been completed and submitted. 
  • You will receive a link to download your certificate of attendance once you have completed the survey. If there are further reading materials, these will be made available via My Resources in CoSy.
