Learning for life and leisure: enrol for new autumn courses

The new autumn prospectus from the University of Bath’s Centre for Lifelong Learning is now available. From Archaeology to Psychology, from Art to Philosophy, and all subjects in-between, enrolment for the Centre’s exciting and wide-ranging programme of part-time courses starts today.

The new programme of part-time courses, held at the University’s Claverton campus and its city-centre location at Carpenter House, runs from 9 October to 14 December.

Brand new courses in a range of subjects feature on the extensive programme. In Art and Design, students can chose from over 20 courses, including Calligraphy, Animation and Creative Textiles. Aspiring writers can put pen to paper as they tackle Features Journalism or Writing Short Stories and they can even bring their literary creations along to a Writers’ Workshop.

New weekend and day schools include courses in Garden Design, Life Story Recording for those who would like to document their family story, and even Web Design in a Day.

“We’re really pleased to be offering our students such a broad and varied programme this autumn,” says Caroline Gardiner, Lifelong Learning Manager at the University.

“Feedback from our students tells us that they really appreciate the quality of teaching, experience and enthusiasm of our course tutors. It’s one of the main reasons why people enrol year after year.”

For the first time, students are encouraged to enrol online. For more information see related links in the top lefthand corner.

“We have a new website which is really user-friendly,” says Caroline. “It’s all too easy to put off filling in a form so it’s great to offer such a quick and easy route to enrolment. A few clicks and you’re there. We piloted the online system last year and over 300 people enrolled without any difficulty. ”

Term starts on 9 October 2006 and students are encouraged to enrol as soon as possible.

For help and advice with online enrolment, students can also visit the Lifelong Learning office at Carpenter House in Bath during office hours.

The Lifelong Learning Programme is now in its twelfth year and has provided thousands of students of all ages from Bath and the surrounding area with a tremendously impressive range of learning opportunities.

The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for quality research and teaching. View a full list of the University's press releases:
