Whilst we'd love you to study with us for a full three years, we know for some people that commitment simply isn't practical.

In fact, it may be why you haven't decided to study for a degree before now, especially if, like many of our students, you're returning to education after some time away.

Three years can seem daunting in all kinds of ways. Can you afford to be studying for that period of time? Will you be able to cope juggling a degree with other commitments? Are you making the right decision to go back to education in the first place?

Because we appreciate all the these things can be sticking points, we've rethought how we deliver our degree-level education to make it as flexible and accessible as possible.
