Benefits of part-time study

Part-time degrees are suitable for those of you with work or family commitments. A part-time degree gives you the flexibility of developing your skills and learning something you love, while progressing your career at the same time.

As part of our admissions process we will consider non-traditional qualifications, work and life experience, and credit may also be given for prior learning and certificate work.

Discover how you can study while working, and enhance your skills. Take the next step - browse our course list.

Our part-time undergraduate degrees are taught during the daytime and lectures are taken with full-time students. (With the exception of Engineering BSc (Part-Time) which is delivered in the evening.) Civil engineering courses have a day-release delivery.

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.

If your fees are to be paid in part or in full by a sponsor (such as your employer) visit our Postgraduate Fees page to find out what you need to do.

Student loans

As a part-time student applying for courses for 2018/19 you can now apply for loans via the Student Loans Company.
