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.

We will be moving to 50-51 Park Place at the end of 2023. If you have enrolled on a course with a September/October start date, please check the location of your course before you attend the first lesson. The location will be found on your confirmation.

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