The Centre for Lifelong Learning has provided high-quality, online, distance learning opportunities for almost a decade.

Aimed at anyone wishing to learn in a flexible fashion, and requiring only basic IT skills to engage, our provision has attracted students from across the globe.

Our courses

Our part-time courses usually start in late September, and are led by academics who are experts in their fields. Creative Writing and Astronomy courses can also be started in January.
