Balance your studies with your life
Tailored carefully to the needs of part-time students, study options include evening and day release, yet offer exactly the same levels of student support and facilities as full time. Crucially, part-time study allows you to balance your studies with your life. Flexible study fits in around family and work commitments – and your employer may even contribute towards your tuition fees. It’s no wonder that at Birmingham City University one in three people are studying on a part-time basis.
Benefits of part-time study

Part-time courses are studied over a longer period of time than their full-time equivalents, but you spend fewer hours per week in a classroom. Your course could involve day release, day plus evening. A typical timetable would be 9am to 8pm, one day per week.
