Centre for Open Learning

Our programmes

The Centre for Open Learning is the home of Short courses, Languages For All and English Language Education.

Our programmes are all designed to promote lifelong learning, and give our learners the support and motivation to continue with formal and informal educational studies. This extends to language support for students, pathways into University degrees, and an extensive range of non-credit courses for self-motivated individuals.
