1. Flexibility – fit a part-time course around your commitments.

You could study for free in 2023!

Depending on personal circumstances you may be eligible for fee remission or a discount on a range of our part-time courses.

For courses requiring fees we aim to keep our costs as reasonable as possible, and for those studying art and design related courses, your tuition and materials fee cover everything you will need; including resources to produce your own work to take home with you!

If you are wanting to study an academic part-time course with us, for example GCSEs or Access to Higher Education then our Student Finance team are on hand to discuss available funding options with you – including fee remission, loans and grants. 

We run sessions during the day and in the evenings after 5pm, meaning you don’t have to miss out if you have commitments during the day. You don’t necessarily have to travel into the city centre either as we have community courses taking place at venues across Nottinghamshire.

2. New Year new hobby?

Create a New Year’s resolution you’ll want to stick to and try your hand at something different.

Hobbies provide us with a brilliant outlet for creativity and our courses are great fun (and many of our community and creative courses require you to have NO prior qualifications). From art, ceramics and cake decorating to creative writing, dressmaking and foreign languages there’s a huge range of enjoyable courses to choose from. 

2. Flexible finance options and fee remission available

3. Enhance your career prospects.

Part-time study can help you to increase your job prospects, develop new skills or set you on a new career path.

If you’ve always wanted to study a university level or further education course but don’t currently have the qualifications, our part-time Access to Higher Education preparation and GCSE courses can help you get there. 

If you want to develop your skills in the workplace then we offer workforce training opportunities which allow employers to up skill their employees with a variety of flexible part-time course options. 

4. Learn from the best

Our courses take place in great surroundings and under the guidance of expert tutors. Whether you want to throw on the potter’s wheel, create an artistic masterpiece in our studios or prefer the relaxed surroundings at our community venues, you can be sure you’ll gain the skills you need to smash your goals in a welcoming environment.
