Part-time study

PG students studying in classroom

Most of our Academic Schools offer part-time courses.

They’re ideal if you need to balance study with employment or family commitments - they provide greater flexibility and a less intensive workload whilst still providing all the benefits and support enjoyed by full-time students.

Course length

Part-time courses are usually twice as long as their full-time equivalent. Search our courses for more information.

Benefits and support

You’ll enjoy the same benefits and support as full-time students. See the Supporting your study page for full details.

Tuition fees

Fees are spread evenly over the length of your course. Part-time fees are indicated on each course listing. Please be aware that fees quoted are usually for the current or upcoming academic year only, and not necessarily for the entire duration of the programme. For programmes lasting more than one year, tuition fees for subsequent years of study are subject to an increase of no more than 4.5% per year.

Distance learning

Some courses are also available as distance/e-learning options. They include Environmental Design of Buildings, Clinical Pharmacy and a range of courses in our Schools of Medicine, Optometry & Vision Sciences, and Healthcare Sciences.
