Courses in this section are aimed at Adults who are 19+ and looking to study at college on a part-time basis. These courses lead to an industry recognised professional qualification or accreditation. We understand that you are busy and that your time is precious so courses are designed to be flexible to fit around your work commitments and lifestyle.
