As part of the University’s commitment to making itself accessible to the local community, the LLC organises events and runs short courses throughout the year which have few (usually no) academic prerequisites and are affordable (and in many cases free). Our 2015/16 programme of public engagement activity comprises three main strands.

Things kicked off in mid-September with the commencement of our 2015/16 Seminar Series, the opening event of which was held at the Oxfam bookshop in Headingley in collaboration with the Leeds Centre for Canadian Studies. More seminars will follow throughout the year and the details will be publicised on our website as they are confirmed.

This week saw the commencement of a 24-week, learning-for-pleasure course in Arabic for Beginners. Registration is still open for this course, which will run through until Easter on the University campus and will be followed by additional courses in the Spring and as part of our 2016 Spring into Summer programme.

Planning is already underway for this third strand of public engagement activity, comprising a range of learning-for-pleasure short courses and events which will run throughout June and July and follow similar provision which we have successfully delivered in previous years.

Here at the Lifelong Learning Centre we’re passionate about promoting the idea that the University should be an accessible place for everyone, regardless of their background. We hope you’ll join us for a course or an event this year – to find out more please visit the appropriate webpage or alternatively download this promotional flyer.
