Benefits of part-time study

Part-time degrees can be suitable if you have work or family commitments, giving you the flexibility to develop your skills learning something that you love, while also progressing your career or caring for your family at the same time.

Alongside offering the flexibility of a part-time degree, during our admissions process we also consider non-traditional qualifications, work and life experience, and credit may also be given for prior learning and certificate work.

If you are considering part-time study, we would recommend you contact us about the course you are interested in, and your specific circumstances. This will allow us to discuss how a part-time degree could fit around your current commitments.

You can contact the relevant Recruitment Team on the email address next to the faculty below, or alternatively you can complete our online enquiry form.

Get financial support

There is financial support available for students who will be studying part-time as well as a flexible payment scheme, allowing you to spread the cost of your course fees - providing you are studying at least 25% of the full-time equivalent course per year.

If you are enrolled for less than 25% of the full-time equivalent course per year then you must pay in full on enrolment. Please note that there are no early payment discounts or alumni discounts for students embarking on a part-time route.
