Part-time courses for adults

Part-time courses in humanities, languages, business, computing, politics and law, science and environment, and social studies.

We provide both classroom-based and online courses. The delivery of each course will be specified in each course description.

Be inspired by our range of part-time courses at levels and times to suit you.

You can also study towards qualifications and we provide pathways to study an undergraduate degree with the university.

This summer we’re offering intensive language courses in French, Italian, Spanish and Ukrainian. A range of levels are available from beginners to more advanced.
