Can I really start any day?

Absolutely. Traditional course start dates can often be a barrier to pursuing higher education. But life doesn't always follow a set schedule, and we understand that. That's why we have revolutionised the way you can begin your studies. By offering you the opportunity to start any day, we're empowering you to take control of your educational journey.

Have you previously been unable to pursue a degree due to work commitments, personal obligations, or other responsibilities? Whether you're in the midst of a career change, juggling family life, or simply prefer a more personalised approach to learning, our flexible start dates allow you to start when you're ready.

Will I study with other students?

We understand that being part of a community is important. No matter what day you choose to start your course, you'll join a cohort of students who are studying the same modules as you. This means you'll have the chance to engage and collaborate with other others who are at the same stage of their studies, as well as experienced lecturers who will guide you through your courses.

Through group discussions, virtual study groups, and interactive assignments, you'll have plenty of opportunities to connect with your fellow students and form valuable relationships. Whether it's sharing insights, seeking support, or collaborating on projects, you'll be part of a vibrant community that enhances your learning experience.

The benefits of flexible start dates

Fit learning around living

Life is unpredictable, and your education should be able to adapt to your circumstances. With flexible start dates, there's no need to compromise on your career or family commitments – choose a start date that works best for you and embark on your degree with confidence that you can progress on your terms.

Progress at your pace

Everyone learns and progresses differently. With flexible start dates, you have the power to set your own pace and create a learning schedule that suits your style. This personalised approach ensures you can make the most of your educational journey and achieve your goals at the speed that feels right for you.

Start any day you like

We believe your starting point shouldn't dictate your destination. With our flexible start dates, you have the freedom to begin your studies at any time of the year. Whether you're ready to dive into a new journey in January, June or even November, we're here to support you every step of the way.
