Welcome to Choices! Our part-time courses for adults.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-17 edition of CHOICES; Cardiff University’s programme of part-time courses for adult learners. We offer a wide range of subjects to study at a variety of different levels, from absolute beginners to more advanced.
Most of our courses don’t require lots of existing qualifications, just an interest in the subject and a willingness to explore it in the company of others.
We have also developed Pathways to a Degree to provide a part-time route to undergraduate degrees at Cardiff University (see box below). So whether you’re studying with us for personal development, to enhance your career prospects, or to increase your knowledge you can expect to be stimulated and challenged and, on most courses, earn credits toward a qualification from Cardiff University.

We are pleased to offer an exciting range of Humanities courses designed to fire your imagination. View our Creative Writing, Historical Studies, Music and Philosophy courses.
Our language courses are wide-ranging, covering a spectrum of languages spoken around the world, including Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, German, Italian, Japanese and many others (including Public Service Interpreting).
The courses developed for Business and Management Studies reflect the needs of people working in a dynamic and changing environment, and the needs of employers to have skilled workers.
If you have very little knowledge of computing, our courses should give you a sound foundation in varied and interesting areas. Databases, Programming, Web Design and Scripting.
Our courses meet an increased public desire to understand and to challenge how we are governed, and who in our society constructs the regulations and rules by which we lead our every day lives.
Science is part of the fabric of our society, and the ability to question and understand how things behave is very much a part of what makes us human.
Up to 40 FREE short courses deliver attractive and flexible learning opportunities, designed to help support community-based students progress to the next stage, whether that is work, college or university.
