Come and have a taste of lifelong learning

Thinking of studying part-time? Take one of our courses for a test-drive in May.

The Institute of Lifelong Learning (part of the University of Leicester) runs a range of part-time courses leading to a CHE (Certificate in Higher Education) qualification. This is the equivalent of the first year of an actual degree course and can either lead on to a degree (part-time or full-time) or just be enjoyed as a chance to widen one’s knowledge and/or stoke up one’s CV.

But which course is right for you? A week of ‘taster sessions’ in May will allow interested folk to dip their toe into a range of subjects, from art history to ecology.

The week in question, 15-21 May 2010, ties in with a national initiative, Adult Learners' Week. During ALW, in addition to the taster courses, staff from the University will be in the Highcross Shopping Centre on Saturday 15 May to hand out literature and talk to people about opportunities for studying in different ways with the University of Leicester.

There are also two related open evenings that week: in the College of Arts, Humanities and Law on Tuesday 18 May and at Vaughan College on 19 May. Arts, Humanities and Law is one of the four administrative Colleges which make up the University. Vaughan, on the other hand, is an off-campus location (at St Nicholas' Circle) which houses most of the Institute of Lifelong Learning’s courses.
