A full-time job, family commitments or a simple lack of time needn’t prevent you from furthering your education.


A wide range of part-time courses is on offer at the University of Lincoln – and if you want to sign up enrolment takes place next week.


Part-time study allows you to upgrade your professional qualifications, learn a new skill or simply broaden your horizons - and the beauty of it is that your course can be as flexible as you want it to be:


·        you can study what you want, when you want

·        if you have to move universities elsewhere will recognise the work you’ve done

·        attendance options include daytime, evening and weekend

·        you decide what qualification to aim for – or you can just study for fun

·        you can complete part of your degree at centres outside Lincoln

·        you can study for a few weeks or for up to five years

·        Work-Based Learning degrees allow you to work towards a professionally

       relevant qualification


Courses on offer in Lincoln range from Theatre Crafts, Journalism and Fashion to Accounting, Crop Protection and Food Science.


And the time to sign up is now: enrolment takes place at the Brayford Pool campus on Wednesday 4th September (4pm to 8pm) and Monday 9th September (4pm to 8pm).


Part-time study is also available at North Lindsey College in Scunthorpe; enrolment takes place at the college on Tuesday 10th September (4pm to 8pm).


“You can change your life by taking the opportunities that are available to you,” said university spokesman Jez Ashberry. “Seize the day and find out what part-time courses the University of Lincoln can offer.”
