We run a selection of life-long learning courses that can be taken by students who do not have any specialist scientific or mathematical background. These are multimedia courses taught using a variety of media such as interactive CD-ROM material, videos, DVDs, websites, online discussion forums. These courses are taken as part time distance learning courses, you do not need to attend any on-site classes.
