There’s always a lot going on here, as any        Chief Executive
of our 16,000 or so students will tell you.
While most of our students study full-time
or part-time, we have many students on
our evening programmes and have a wide
range of courses to choose from. So,
whether you are looking to enhance your
qualifications in your current work role, or
perhaps you are considering a career
change or just looking to pursue a new
activity or hobby for fun, we are sure to
have an evening course to interest you.
Lifelong learning is one of our guiding
principles. Some of our courses do not
require any formal entry qualifications and
we have progression routes in place for
many of our courses, all the way through to
university degree courses. We do our best to
ensure there is nothing to stop you taking up
a new interest or indeed a new job!
We look forward to welcoming you
here soon.
