- Evening courses calendar
Classes are held on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Courses vary in length from short ten-week courses, lasting only one term in autumn or spring, to twenty-five week courses, which last from September to June. The calendar follows the day-time academic calendar with breaks at Halloween, Christmas, February and Easter.
- Enrolments and Brochure
Enrolments take place in September and again in January each year. There is an Evening Courses brochure available here. In order to avoid disappointment, we advise you to keep an eye out for our brochure so that you are ready for enrolment day.
On enrolment day you will have the opportunity to talk to a member of staff about the course which interests you.
Fees vary for these courses but are always very reasonable because the charges are based on what it costs us to provide the course, nothing more. Fees are paid on enrolment night. See autumn or spring edition of evening courses brochure for more details.
Having got the taste for study in the evening, we would encourage those who are interested to consider full-time study with us during the day. As you will see from this brochure, there are many full-time courses which relate to our part-time evening programme. We would be happy to discuss your options with you.
- Courses for everyone
We are committed to the principle of lifelong learning for everybody. Adults of all ages from 18 to 108 are welcome to participate on our courses. We have students from far and near and many different communities. Some of our students are pursuing a hobby while others are developing their knowledge and skills in a particular subject area for their working lives.
All are welcome.
We value your feedback!
We make changes and additions to our programme each year in order to provide an interesting and varied menu of courses. We aim to put on courses that people need and want. We are therefore very interested in hearing from you about any courses which you would like to see us provide for you.
