Programmes can be studied during daytime, evenings or both. Some offer day release or block options. Many programmes are modular, allowing you to study at your own pace and build up credits as you go. Take a look at our part-time courses for further information.
DMU also offers some levels of certain programmes through the Associate Colleges Network. Further information can also be obtained directly from the relevant colleges.
Duration varies according to the individual programme. However, in general, part-time qualifications last:
Honours Degree: five to six years
Diploma: three to four years
Certificate: two years
Most courses start in September or October but some have later second entry dates.
Applicants who have non-traditional qualifications or who have gained experience and skills during their careers will be considered. Whether you have formal qualifications such as A Levels, have taken an Access Course or have appropriate work experience, DMU will consider your application.
The Short Courses and Conference Unit offer a wide range of courses in areas such as computing and engineering. If you would like more information on what is on offer, visit the courses pages or contact the unit at:

All programmes are delivered in year-long modules. Students typically study four to six modules per year, depending on whether the module has a single or double credit value. Some part-time students can study a programme module-by-module over a longer period.
The scheme is available for all undergraduate programmes. Details are included in the individual programme entries.
