Learn more about what you could learn from the Institute of Lifelong Learning.

Adult Learners’ Week is almost upon us and once again the University’s Institute of Lifelong Learning is offering free taster sessions for some of the courses you could study with us. And this year there’s also a series of free public lectures in local libraries which will give you an insight into topics that can be studied at any age.

The one-hour taster sessions all take place at Vaughan College. You can find out about opportunities in Psychology on Monday 16 May and Creative Writing Opportunities on Tuesday 17 May. Then on Thursday 19 May you’ve got the chance to try a taste of art history or counselling.

The public lectures take place at public libraries around Leicester and Leicestershire between Saturday 14 May and Thursday 19 May, some in the day-time and some in the evening. Academics from the University of Leicester will be talking on subjects ranging from ‘What is “Religion” and what does it mean to “study” it?’ to ‘Leicestershire People at the Seaside: Local Experiences of a National Pastime’.

All lectures are free to attend and will include a Q&A session, plus a chance to find out more about lifelong learning at the University of Leicester.
