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. 

Please note: Our autumn courses remain online to ensure the safety of our learners.  We will reassess the situation in spring with a view to returning to face-to-face classes.

Booking for autumn courses will open at 10 am on 03 August 2021. 

Booking for spring courses will open at 10 am on 01 December 2021.

Unfortunately, our access to the office is still limited but we are available to take telephone bookings. 

Our phone number is 01 716 7123
