Pathways to a degree at Cardiff University

Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning has developed a number of pathways to help you achieve your ambition of studying a degree at Cardiff University.  Each pathway has been developed with busy adult learners in mind. That means that they are taught on a part-time basis in the evenings and weekends in a friendly and relaxed setting.  In most cases, you won’t need prior qualifications to get started and there will be plenty of help to develop your study skills.

Subjects available

These 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.
