Study at Darlington
Because many of you have busy lives and other commitments, some part-time courses run in the evening, others run during the day or over an afternoon. You may find that some of the modules have attendance concentrated into a few days, others incorporate open and distance learning.
Most part-time programmes require regular attendance at lectures and seminars and the completion of assignments. You'll also have to devote some of your own time to reading and studying.
If sitting exams doesn’t turn you on, be assured that very few part-time modules use examination as the main method of assessment. Instead, we use a range of course-based assessments including written assignments, presentations and projects.
