 2017 SHORT COURSE CALENDAR 

  • Please note the continuing education courses occur on Whitecliffe's university calendar and don't align with the general school calendar.
  • Also, Whitecliffe runs a workshop week each term for the graduating students and for this special assignment week, all the studios need to be available for the students. Therefore, the short courses have a "break" week half way through the term.
