We deliver courses that encourage and support student diversity, with a focus on students from under-represented groups or who don't have traditional qualifications.
We also offer support to current and prospective mature, part-time and Foundation level students, and apprentices. This is done through offering one-to-one advice sessions, open days and subject events to help you decide your pathway into higher education.
If you have any questions, contact us through the Lifelong Learning Centre enquiry form.

As a School, we carry out research in many areas including:
- teaching and inclusive learning
- student support, engagement, and experience
- equality, diversity, and inclusion
Many of our academic staff are also active researchers in their own areas of expertise.
We are also interested in methodology and theory that can offer new insights and help shape and inform policy and practice in adult learning and widening participation.
