Studying for a degree is not the only path to a successful career. We offer youth talent schemes, work placements and apprenticeships for young people.

Study locally

Childcare
If you live locally, there are many ways to study something new. You can take a short course as a leisure activity, study an online course to gain a qualification, or enrol on a full-time degree. 

Short courses

Woman on art course
You don’t have to study for a degree to learn with us. We have a huge range of options that allow you to study at a time and pace that suits you.

Online courses

Laptop and books on a desk
We offer two main types of online learning courses: postgraduate qualifications and Massive Open Online Courses.
