Evening classes to give part-timers more flexibility

The University of Lincoln is launching a new programme of evening classes to give people tempted by higher education the chance to try university. Learning at Lincoln will enable part-time learners to attend teaching sessions at times convenient to them – and gain credits which could go on to form the foundation for a full degree.

The classes are geared towards people with busy working or family lives who are keen to study at university but may not have the time during the day for conventional part-time courses. Throughout their studies, students will benefit from equivalent support and facilities available to full-time students at the University’s Brayford Pool Campus. Upon successful completion of the programme students can continue working towards a diploma or a degree.

Dr Howard Stevenson, the Learning at Lincoln Coordinator, said: “There are many people who would like to get into higher education but whose circumstances make the prospect of a full-time degree daunting. They might work full-time or have young children who depend on them during the day. “Learning at Lincoln is designed to give just these kinds of people the opportunities they might otherwise miss. It has been tailored to be flexible so students can make the course fit around them.” Dr Stevenson added.
