Part-time degree courses

Part-time degrees to suit your lifestyle

If you would like to upskill in your current role, or perhaps retrain to pursue a new career but are looking to study in a flexible way that fits around your current commitments, then you may wish to consider studying on a part-time, distance or online learning basis.

Part-time degrees

Part-time degree courses generally involve less hours spent in the classroom in comparison to full-time degrees and are a great way to achieve a higher education qualification in a more flexible way. We offer part-time degrees in:

  • art and design
  • beauty therapy
  • business
  • childcare
  • digital arts
  • digital technologies
  • engineering
  • health and social care

Competitive tuition fees

Our tuition fee for a part-time degree course is £4,625 per year. If you’re studying your first degree you are likely to qualify for a Tuition Fee Loan to help cover the
cost. This loan is not based on household income and there’s no upper age limit for applying. To check your eligibility simply visit
