If you want to study a degree, but cannot attend university on a full-time basis, studying part-time is a great way to balance further study with other commitments.
Enrolling as a part-time student on one of our degree courses means you can study course modules and units at your own pace, gradually accumulating credits which count towards your final qualification.

Study could take anywhere between two and four years to complete, depending on whether you are studying a foundation degree or HNC/D or a BA (Hons) top-up degree.

Benefits of part-time study include:

  • Work while you study
  • Balance your studies with other commitments
  • Employers may contribute to your tuition fees
  • Same great levels of student support and facilities
  • Study around family and work commitments
  • Potential to progress in your career
  • Study in groups of like-minded people
  • Support from industry experienced lecturers, who understand the commitments students studying on a part-time basis make

Our experienced and professional lecturers each have a contemporary and thorough understanding of their discipline area, offering excellent support and guidance to you throughout your degree.

Many of our part-time degrees have September and January start dates, so why not take your next steps and join us in January!
