Part-Time & Flexible Learning

Apply now for October 2020. Discover part-time study at Al-Maktoum College, Dundee

The College’s part-time and flexible learning options are designed to allow for study that fits alongside other commitments, such as work or family life.

The majority of our courses are available to study on a full-time and part-time basis, with stand alone unit options also being available to allow for individuals to build qualifications up over time.

The College offers small class sizes, high quality teaching and a diverse range of subjects.

Who can apply?

Part-time study is designed for individuals who cannot commit to full-time learning but are looking to enhance their career, qualifications or continuing  professional development.

Units are SCQF credit-rated by the SQA and can be used for career development or for further study.

Open to all- there are no formal entry requirements.

How will classes be taught?

Teaching may take place during the day and/or in the evening, between 09.00 and 20.00 Monday to Friday.

The College have recently announced updates to teaching arrangements. To achieve greater flexibility in student learning, classes within the first semester will most likely be delivered through a blended model of face-to-face and digital teaching methods. The College is well placed to continue delivering high quality learning experiences through such methods.
