The Centre for Lifelong Learning offers an exciting range of courses for learners who are looking for an accredited course or to study for pleasure.

2023/24 Programme Update

For the 2023/24 academic year, we will be offering a mix of online and classroom based courses. 

Please ensure when you make a booking for a course that the mode of delivery meets with personal requirements - each course is only offered via one delivery mode.

We have now released the details for our Accredited Modules, Learning for Pleasure Courses, and our Saturday Courses. All course information is available online through this website, and we would encourage you to register at your earliest convenience as many courses sell out quickly.

Students signing up to work towards a Certificate of Higher Education should bear in mind that for future terms they may need to attend courses in York, in person.

The Centre also offers a reduction in course fees for people receiving benefits: any such reduction is at the discretion of the Head of Lifelong Learning and appropriate evidence must be supplied with the application. Please contact the Centre for more information about eligible benefits and reduced fees.
