Open-access, flexible programmes tailored to adult learners who have not studied for some time

Undergraduate Study

An exciting opportunity for flexible, part-time study at the University of York:

  • Study at a world-class university, without the need for any previous qualifications
  • Gain a nationally recognised award which could serve as a passport to advanced level study
  • Return-to-learn in an academically rigorous environment, tailored to the specific needs of adult learners.




Our 2023/24 programme

For the 2023/24 academic year, we will be offering a mix of course modes for accredited modules with some online and some 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.

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.

Accredited Programmes


We offer modules in Arts and Humanities (including archaeology, creative writing, history and heritage, history of art, literature, and philosophy) and Social Sciences (including psychology, sociology, and social policy). 


With 120 credits you will be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education in Lifelong Learning. This is a qualification in its own right but can also provide the opportunity for further study at University level.

You can also study for a 60-credit University Certificate of Lifelong Learning.
