Inside Narratives


The Inside Narratives pathway enables adult learners to progress onto undergraduate degrees in the School of English, Communication and Philosophy at Cardiff University. The pathway is a collaboration between Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) and the School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP) at Cardiff University. It combines ENCAP’s exciting teaching and research with CPE’s vast experience of supporting adults who are returning to education.

If you have always wanted to learn more about literature, language or philosophy then Inside Narratives is for you. The pathway will open up fascinating topics, whilst giving you the tuition and support you need to help you to develop your skills and make the most of your abilities. You will learn about the stories we use to make sense of life, the codes
and patterns that connect us to each other, and the big questions that have vexed our greatest thinkers for thousands of years.

Once you have successfully completed the pathway, you are guaranteed an interview at ENCAP. Should you progress onto a degree programme, you will be eligible for ‘advanced standing’ of 60 credits – this means that these 60 credits will count towards the first year of your degree.

Pathways are designed for those with life experience and we welcome applications from students who may have been away from formal education for several years. If you need to discuss the pathway in more detail please contact Dr David Frayne by calling 02920875268 or by emailing
