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.
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.
- Exploring the Past Pathway (for a degree in History, Archaeology or Religion)
- Pathway to English Language, Literature & Philosophy - New!
- Our Media, Our World - New!
- Pathway to Social Science
- Pathway to Business Management
- Pathway to Accounting or Accounting and Finance
- Pathway to Translation

If you are in receipt of benefits your ‘pathway’ courses could be free. There are also bursaries available for students from lower income backgrounds. For more information select your preferred subject area from the list above.
