Part-time study

Student with books

With 99% of our part-time graduates in employment or further study within six months of graduating, we are one of the top ten in England and top modern university in London for our part-time graduates*.

Studying an undergraduate course part-time will enhance your employability and, if you study whilst you're working, you can apply your learning directly to work, providing a direct and immediate benefit to your employer.

Study options

We offer a range of study options, meaning you can balance your studies with other commitments.

Study methods include:

  • part-time Saturday intensive courses in subject areas including Accounting and Finance, Airline and Airport Management, Applied Project Management, Business, Computing and Information Systems, Criminology and Cyber Security
  • part-time weekday intensive courses for students working in a relevant industry who wish to develop their work-related skills and knowledge, in areas including Building Surveying, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Construction Project Management and Health and Social Care
  • evenings with courses specialising in Procurement and Supply, MBA and Digital Marketing
  • distance learning with study days, with courses specialising in Nutritional Therapy.

Funding your studies

Home and EU part-time undergraduate students starting their first degree can apply for student finance, meaning you don’t have to pay tuition fees upfront

Also, if you already hold an Honours degree or higher level qualification and are thinking about studying one of our part-time Honours degrees in engineering, technology or computer science, you may also be able to get funding.

If you are funding your studies yourself, we offer flexible payment plans.

For more information about how to pay fees, contact our Student Finance Centre on 020 8280 0283.

You can also see our fees page for more information.

We also offer scholarships for part-time study, including an undergraduate part-time fee waiver of £1,500.
