Weekend Courses - make the most of your spare time and get a real student experience
We’ve got the perfect study package to suit your lifestyle - we're offering exciting new courses that are delivered over six weekends per year.
We are now taking applications for weekend study in October 2013 - here are the courses and length of study available. Just follow the links to find out more about each one:
- PG Dip Executive Leadership - three years
- Postgraduate Diploma in HRM - three years
- MSc Leadership & Change Management - three years
- MBA (Executive) - three years
Our courses are a great way to steadily develop your skills without impacting on your work commitments in the way that full-time or part-time study can.
We'll give you an authentic student experience - you'll study at our state-of-the-art Rose Bowl building in Leeds city centre as part of a close-knit community of weekend learners. You'll enjoy 24-hour access to our library, accommodation options including Carnegie Village, and you'll get the opportunity to try out all our great sports and gym facilities at fantastic rates.
We're also opening the Rose Bowl Food Court, so you can make the most of breaks between classes by chatting away with fellow students, eating a meal, enjoying a warm drink or just catch up with the world thanks to our free Wi-Fi service.
There's no need to miss out on university life - just do it at the weekend.
All the support you need
We’ll support you throughout your studies and our library services provide you with a convenient learning resource. You’ll be able to access our Headingley and City Campus library, and our Library Online.
We have thousands of electronic books, journals and newspapers available (just less than 60,000 at the last count) via Library Online, which also offers online tutorials, while our off-site service enables you to have books, journal articles, and photocopies posted to your work or home address.
Our postgraduate courses run over three years, while away from the classroom we anticipate that you'll need to do an average of 10 hours personal study time each week.
