Preparing for university

These sessions cover a wide range of topics to help you prepare for university, such as returning to education as an adult learner, funding for mature students and the support available to you at the Lifelong Learning Centre.

Watch our Preparing for university recorded online talk to discover the range of full and part-time courses for mature students, the extra support available during the return to education, and hear from current students about their experience of studying at the Lifelong Learning Centre.

Pathways to Higher Education 

These sessions explore our full-time and part-time courses that are specially designed for adult learners. Hear from our tutors delivering taster sessions, ask questions to our current students and explore the campus at in-person events.

Extended degrees with a foundation year

These courses are designed for applicants whose backgrounds mean they are less likely to attend university and who do not currently meet admissions criteria for direct entry to a degree. This means we consider additional factors about your background when you apply. 

Watch our Extended degrees with foundation year recorded online talk to discover more about studying for an extended degree with a foundation year and the additional support available to students who fulfil our widening participation criteria. 

You can also hear about foundation year students’ experiences at the Lifelong Learning Centre and how it prepared them for their chosen degree courses.
