Bangor University Lifelong Learning

The School of Lifelong Learning at Bangor University plays an important role in providing part-time study options across the region.  Our aim is to ensure access to higher education opportunities through developing and supporting stimulating, high quality and flexible learning.

Student support

We fully understand the pressures of studying part-time whilst working and raising a family, as well as the barriers created by a lengthy absence from a learning environment. Our expert and dedicated staff are here to ensure our courses are relevant, current and accessible to you and to support you on your learning journey.

Flexible programmes

You have three key pathways to study part time; through our flexible OPEN STUDIES programme or through our core degree programmes, COMBINED STUDIES and the soon-to-be re-introduced BA PSYCHOSOCIAL STUDIES (with an exit point at HE Cert in Psychosocial Studies).

OPEN STUDIES provides you with clusters of subject areas where you can take one or many modules to suit your interests and pocket. The modules vary from more informal, non-accredited courses to accredited modules that you could add to a degree programme should you wish to develop your studies more formally.

Your first steps in HE are nurtured through a study skills module supported by the Study Skills Centre, Library staff and Lifelong Learning specialists. Our core degrees in Combined Studies and Psychosocial Studies enable a wide range of study supported by an excellent team of tutors, led by subject specialists.

You can progress to Postgraduate Certificates in Professional Practice. From 2016-17 Translation and Translation Technologies is available and for 2017-18, a PG Cert in Substance Use Management (subject to validation), or Postgraduate Diplomas and MA’s in Community Development and Women’s Studies.

Within the flexible programmes you can build your specialism as you progress or keep your studies broad to suit your particular requirements.
