Got a question?

What financial support is available for adults?

Many of our part-time courses are free for individuals who are eligible.

For full details of eligibility criteria, visit our finance page.

I haven’t studied in a long time but want to go to university, what can I do?

We offer a pre access to HE course, which is ideal if you want to return to college to develop your basic academic skills in preparation for an Access to HE course, and subsequent university entry.

The course will help you to develop maths and English skills as well as developing your personal study skills and knowledge. For more info visit our Access to HE course page.

Can I study part time?

Yes.

Most of our adult courses are part time with evening and day time classes so you can choose an option that best suits you.

When do adult courses start?

Majority of our adult courses start in September.

However, we have various start dates across the year you can start immediately or book your space for later.

Do you have a nursery onsite?

For students who have children, we have an on-campus nursery ran by fully-trained, experienced staff.

Can I study Higher Education at college?

Yes.

Usually associated with going to University, not many people realise you can also study Higher Education at college – and it can often be the best route. Studying HE at college comes with a wide range of benefits – and the same University standard qualification.

Find out more about our Higher Education offer here.
