All of our courses are accredited and have inspired many students to progress with their education including further study at Cardiff University.
CHOICES is Cardiff University’s programme of part-time courses for the general public. It includes a wide range of subjects at a variety of levels from absolute beginners to expert, depending on the topic. All our courses are part-time and most are open to anyone without prior qualifications. Every year more than 4,000 people, from all walks of life and of all ages, study with us.
Pathways to a degree
Pathways to Progression have been developed in conjuction with other schools at the University and are made up of six 10 credit courses. They equivalent to 50% of the first year of a degree and are intended to provide you with basic skills and intellectual preparation for your chosen degree
Unlike A Level or Access routes, the Pathways will be taught and assessed in similar ways to first year undergraduate courses and will provide you with first-hand experience of studying at degree level in a vibrant Higher Education environment. Even better, you don’t need any prior qualifications to get started.
All students who successfully complete a Pathway will automatically qualify for an interview onto either a full-time or part-time degree scheme.
Pathways for Progression: Opening Doors for Adult Learners
The Pathways for Progression project enables adult learners to access undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Cardiff University. Over the past few years Continuing & Professional Education has been collaborating with Academic Schools within the University to develop new Pathways to a degree.
