At CU Scarborough, we deliver our part-time degree courses in a way that suits people with busy lives. Depending on the course, teaching takes place either 9am-5pm one day a week, or 6pm-10pm two evenings a week, Mondays and Wednesdays.

Each course is made up of short blocks of six weeks. You will usually study three blocks in one year. You need to study 12 blocks for a degree, 8 for a HND and 4 for the HNC. 

All of our part-time courses include classroom-based and online learning. We provide tutorial support to assist you outside the normal class times and we make it our business to make sure you are progressing well with your studies.

Study one day a week

For many prospective students you may find it convenient to study for your degree or professional qualification on just one day a week.

Our degree courses are available to be delivered during 8 hours of contact one day a week, typically Wednesday 9am-5pm. Additional content is delivered through online learning. You study with us for up to 18 weeks per year, broken up into three six-week blocks. 

Study in the evening

If like many people, you regularly find yourself busy with other commitments during the daytime, you will find the option to study during evenings the ideal solution. Evening courses run Monday and Wednesday evenings 6pm-10pm.

Evening degree courses are delivered over six-week blocks and you can study up to three blocks per year. They begin with either a Foundation or HNC.

Please note, evening courses run subject to numbers.
