Part time & Flexible Study

Part time and Flexible Study

Our flexible study options are designed to offer you ways to study that fit alongside your work or family commitments, providing you the choice of when, where and how you learn. This flexibility allows us to offer learning opportunities to an increasingly diverse range of students.

Part time study

The majority of our postgraduate courses, at both Master’s and Doctoral level, provide opportunities for you to study part time. As a part time student you will study the same course as your full time peers over an extended period.

Depending on the course, part time study may be delivered:

  • at regular times throughout the year
  • at evenings and weekends
  • in intensive teaching blocks of one or two weeks at a time

International students must enrol as full time students to comply with UK visa requirements.

Availability of part time study and the expected duration is displayed on individual course profiles.

Continuing Professional Development

We offer a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses aimed at busy professionals who want to further their knowledge and skills at postgraduate level without the time commitment of a full course.

Our CPD courses can be stand-alone or combined to make up a full programme of study. In some cases they are accredited by the University and/or a relevant professional body. Read about the different types of CPD courses that we offer.
