Advice and guidance for adult learners

We appreciate that the thought of going to university can seem like a big step, and we’re here to support you to make good, well-informed choices.

Our free, impartial and confidential advice and guidance service is available to any adult who doesn’t have a UK degree or equivalent qualification, and who has questions about studying at university and/or is thinking about career development and their options for the future.

Our team can help with making the right decision for you and provide you with information on: 

  • Routes into higher education 
  • Financial support available 
  • Your choice of courses 
  • How to apply

Your one-to-one appointment can happen in-person at the University, over the telephone or online.

Appointments are available 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and until 9pm every other Wednesday (telephone and online only).

If you have any questions about our advice and guidance appointments, please email the Lifelong Learning Centre at
