Return to the Classroom in 2024

Lifelong Learning at Cardiff University provides short term and part-time courses for adults. If you want to boost your CV, earn credits towards a qualification, keep your mind active or learn for fun, we provide a wide variety of subjects starting throughout the spring. We want to encourage those who have been away from education for a while to feel confident and empowered to learn.

We also offer Pathways to a degree for those who wish to progress to undergraduate studies. You will receive support and encouragement every step of the way. This year we will be providing in-person teaching and online classes to fit in with your busy lifestyle. Every year we receive positive feedback from our students.

Read Scott’s story here:

“After having children at an early age and not doing well at school, I thought mediocre jobs were my future until retirement. I had never thought about returning to studying before this as I though there was not much support, emotionally and financially, for mature students with children, but I was wrong about that.

“I was in my first online lesson in 16 years only six weeks after I first made contact. I completed a Pathway, and I am now studying a BSc in archaeology.

“Do not look at university or the Pathway in the same way as a school. I struggled in school for several reasons, but now in university, I am excelling at something that I am tremendously passionate about. Your tutors will be there to support you. They are extremely welcoming and informative.

“The Pathway completely changed my life for the better.”
