Adult Learning

It’s never too late to learn!

Whether you’re looking to learn something new, upskill, return to education, or train for a new career, we’re here to help.

You can choose from lots of courses that welcome adults aged 19+, including:

  • part-time and full-time vocational (career-focused) study
  • online courses
  • courses in the community
  • Access to Higher Education courses and university-level study

We have many part-time and online courses starting throughout the year, not just in September.

Funding is available to support eligible adult students on many of our courses, and depending on your circumstances and the course chosen, you could have your course fees waived*.

Choose from courses on campus, in the community or online.

Browse our adult learning options below to find the right fit for you.
