Our courses

Asset Bank 8493

All courses available at the Department for Lifelong Learning are listed on this page. We've grouped them by qualification to help you find courses related to the area you are interested in.

We offer three types of course:

  • a Foundation Programme, designed for learners who feel they need extra preparation to help them get the most out of their university studies
  • a Foundation Degree, academic study integrated with relevant work-based learning undertaken with an employer.
  • a Lifelong Learning Programme, a way to study single module for interest, or for professional development

We are also currently developing a new range of Certificates, a qualification equivalent to level one of a degree, normally lasting 2-3 years, which will be starting in 2015.

Our courses are flexible and accessible, combining the benefits of studying at the University of Sheffield with the advantages of part-time study.
