Applying for a Part-time Course

To apply to study on a part-time course you will need to complete the appropriate part-time application form.

Many of our part-time courses are available to apply using our online application form located on the individual course page. You can also apply by completing and returning the paper-based application form which can be downloaded below.

Short leisure and hobby courses such as arts, crafts and foreign languages are purchasable via our Online Store and do not require an application form to be submitted, and this will be made clear on the course page itself.

Most part-time courses will start in September, however they can start at various points during the year, and some smaller duration part-time courses will run more than once per academic year.

Please see the individual course listing for the next course start date or if you are unsure please call our Course Enquiries line on (01206) 712777.
