Part-time Adult Learners

Our part-time courses have different start dates throughout the year, so it’s always a good time to get started on a course!

For courses starting in September, our main enrolment at Middlesbrough College takes place towards the end of the summer, over a four week period, with students visiting the main building during specified hours. 

You can search and apply for a course online or alternatively download a Part Time Application Form. However, as part-time courses start at various points throughout the year, this is also something we continue each month. You can apply to most of our courses online, in which case you’d be invited to an initial interview for further information, and then to an enrolment session. If the course does not require an interview, you can simply enrol online and we will be in touch with details of your start date.

For further information regarding enrolment specific to your course of interest, please visit the course page, or alternatively email our Course Information Department on
