Part-time is a convenient way to study if you're working or don't have much spare time. We offer courses at all levels part-time and 14,000 people are on them.
We have an excellent record of preparing graduates to succeed at work. You can develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed. Our emphasis is on professionalism and transferable skills. Many courses are directly applicable to specific careers.
What does part-time study involve?
You attend lectures and seminars, complete assignments and study independently. Courses run during the day and evening - some are evenings only.
Teesside courses at your local college
You can study a Teesside University accredited course at one of the University’s five partner colleges. This partnership of Middlesbrough, Darlington, Stockton Riverside, Hartlepool and Redcar & Cleveland Colleges with the University offers a broad provision of part-time higher education programmes across the Tees Valley. Most courses run at the colleges, but some are split between the University and college.
Many courses are for specific industries. Others provide a qualification with a broad base - useful for a variety of careers. Accreditation by professional bodies is an important feature of many courses.
We emphasise professionalism and relevance to work so live projects in your workplace may feature and other courses, such as our foundation degrees, have been developed with employers.
Our Work-based Studies scheme means you can learn at university but focus on an area related to employment and design your own course.

Short courses are for personal and professional development. They run for 15 weeks and usually carry 10 or 20 credits.
Very few part-time modules use exams as the main method of assessment. We use a range of course-based assessments, including written assignments, presentations and projects.
