Centre for Lifelong Learning Short Courses

The Centre for Lifelong Learning (CLL) has been offering courses to adults for almost 40 years. We understand the time pressures and commitments learning as an adult often involve and have ensured our programmes recognise these. Led by experienced subject experts and adult educators, there is an incredibly diverse range of study options.

Classes are open to those aged over 18 regardless of previous educational experience and reflect our commitment to sharing the expertise of the University within the surrounding community.

Whether you wish to study during the day, after work or at the weekends, face to face or online, our various programmes have something for everyone whether for work, personal development or simply curiosity. Over 4,000 people already take classes with CLL each year.

Both our Daytime and Evening & Weekend Programmes are now LIVE!

You can 'Browse & Book Online' using our new online booking system -  MyCLL - on the right hand side of this page.
