Part-time courses for adults

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

We are currently providing classroom-based and online courses. The delivery of each course will be specified in each course description. Please note we will continue to follow the Welsh Government guidance available at the time. This may mean that courses advertised as being based in the classroom will need to switch to being taught online.

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.

Search over 250 part-time short courses and study with Continuing and Professional Education.
