computer science modular courses for the public

Hi, just wondering if there's computer science modular courses offered by unis to the public. Currently, I am a computer science student in a private degree with an interest in studying computer science subjects not taught in my school. (Note this is out of interest, not for work). Things like parallel computing, compiler languages computer architecture.

I know coursera and edx etc online has those too, but just want to explore my options. Preferably a course that allows anyone to take, I know NUS offers specialist certifications. But they have a maths requirement to enter into those programs, I don't have an issue with maths, but rather I haven't touched my a maths for 7 years, so its time consuming for me to revise A maths again to learn some computer science theory that doesn't rely on A math.

If you are really into CS you need your math. It is essential. As for the examples about computer architecture/compiler languages, I feel that the module is pretty much self-study; the course itself didn't add much more than the textbooks
