For the Joy of Learning (Audit)

This option means there is no coursework or assignments but full participation in the class.

Course Fee: £50

For more advanced learning (Credit)

Classes can also be taken for NTC credit (dependent on completing successfully the coursework or assignments) without committing to a University of Manchester programme. However, up to 6 earned NTC credit units at level 4 can be transferred into the first year of a University of Manchester undergraduate programme.

Course Fee: £225 for first 10 credit unit taken and £595 thereafter for each 10 credit unit
