Study for a degree part-time

We offer part-time course options for many of our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Although some professional courses (including nursing) require full-time study, the majority of our programmes can be studied part-time.

Studying part-time gives you the benefit of gaining a qualification while balancing other commitments.

Most learners studying part-time for an undergraduate degree normally take between 4 and 7 years to complete the course.
