Part-time undergraduate degrees

We now offer a number of our undergraduate degree courses on a part-time basis. The course structure is the same as for the equivalent full-time courses, and part-time students study individual modules with full-time students.

A student making use of the library

Instead of studying 120 credits a year for three years, part-time students spread their credits over a period of five or six years, depending on the subject they are studying.

Information about the part-time courses is not included in our online prospectus, and you cannot apply for them via UCAS, so please follow the links below for more information about each course, and links to online application forms.

BA History

BA English Literature

BA Philosophy

BMus Music

Foundation year

All of these degrees are also available with a foundation year. These courses are offered via the Department for Lifelong Learning, and are for mature students (21 and over) who have been out of education for 2+ years.
