One of the best ways to get a feel for the Department for Lifelong Learning and hear answers to any questions you may have is by talking to us face-to-face. We'd love to meet you at one of our events, open days, taster workshops or other events we're attending. 

Our new programme of Open Events will start in September 2017 and we will publish details on these pages after the Summer. In the meantime, you can visit one of the University's Undergraduate Open Days. Our Mature Student Ambassadors are available at every Open Day on the mature student stall in The Octagon. You can also book onto subject talks within departments, speak to University support staff, and visit the University on a campus tour. See below for further details.
