Learning for life and leisure in Salisbury: enrol for new autumn courses

The new autumn prospectus for courses in Salisbury run by the University of Bath’s Centre for Lifelong Learning is now available. From calligraphy to philosophy, enrolment for the Centre’s programme of part-time courses starts today.

The new programme, held at the University’s partner institution Salisbury College and at Sarum College in Salisbury, runs from 25 September to 8 December 2006.

In Calligraphy for beginners students can learn the basic skills and concepts of this ancient art. In archaeology, The Iron Age explores the world of the Celts and students enjoy field trips to local sites of interest. Celtic Christianity explores the religion’s origins and development and looks at its legacy for today.

New day schools give people the opportunity to explore a major theme of modern western philosophy in Who do you think you are? modern and postmodern philosophies of the self, and to examine the interaction between East and West in Philosophy East and West: explorations in inter-cultural dialogue.

“The new courses mark our third term in Salisbury and the response from local people has been really positive,” 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. We know from our longer running programmes in Bath and Swindon that it’s one of the main reasons why people enrol again and again.”

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 from 25 September and students are encouraged to enrol as soon as possible.

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:
