What's On Offer

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. We’d very much like to welcome you to our growing community of online learners. 

Our part-time programmes start in late September/early October each year, and are led by academics who are experts in their fields. Please note that in the interests of increased student flexibility, it is now also possible to start the programmes in creative writing and astronomy in January each year.

Open Events

We aim to offer Open Events over the course of the academic year, so if you'd be interested in meeting the teaching and support team and gaining a better insight into how distance learning works, please send us an email and we will keep you up-to-date on plans for the upcoming year.

We are, of course, more than happy to chat over the phone or via email in the first instance if you have specific questions you would like answering about the postgraduate programmes which we have on offer.
