Lifelong Learning | Overview

Our Lifelong Learning Programme is a series of specific interest courses that are participative, engaging, and facilitated by experts in their field. Lifelong Learning courses cover a broad range of topics including Languages, Art Appreciation, Irish Studies, History, Literature, Philosophy, and Writing. They are open to all adult learners and provide a unique opportunity to explore a subject without examinations.

The programme caters to an ever-growing community of around 1,400 Lifelong Learners and we encourage you to join us! All courses are developed in collaboration with experienced tutors, UCD Schools, and the wider community. 

In Autumn 2019, for the first time, we also began offering free places on Lifelong Learning courses through our Lifelong Learning Bursary. Please click here for more information.
