Thinking of booking your place on one of our exciting courses or study days? Please read the information below to find out more...

How to Apply

Bookings for courses in the next academic year (2018/19) are now open. Click here to book.

Use the Find a course page to browse the different courses and events that we offer. To apply, please click the relevant link at the bottom of the course page under 'Payment'. Confirmation of a place on a course or study day cannot be given until payment has been made through the store. If you are unable to make an online payment please contact us and a member of the Lifelong Learning team will try their best to assist you.

The Online Store accepts a wide range of credit and debit cards and now also PayPal. We will remove links to the Online Store for any cancelled courses, and the store will not let you book if the course is already full.

Instead you will have the option to add your name to the waiting list - in the event of places subsequently becoming available, we will endeavour to fill them from the top of the waiting list. You do not have to pay to add your name to the waiting list - if we are able to offer you a place we will contact you via email and instruct you how to make payment.

Already booked your place? Please look at our essential information page.

Viability of Evening Courses and Deadlines

We do not have an application deadline - however, courses can become fully subscribed very early (although we do have a waiting list facility, so places may become available for students who have signed up but not had a place confirmed). Also, we endeavour to run all courses advertised but need sufficient applications in order for them to run.
