Undergraduate Study

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

  • 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

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

As part of the University response to the coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to cancel our accredited modules for the Summer term. We apologise for any disappointment this causes.

We are currently working on our programme of courses for the 2020/21 academic year, which will include a number of accredited courses - if you would like to be added to our mailing list for a copy of our brochure when it is available, please email

Accredited Programmes


We offer modules in Arts and Humanities, and Social Sciences. We are currently working on our 2020/21 academic programme, and will include links to this here when it is available.


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.
