Welcome to Portsmouth College Adult and Continuing Education

We are delighted that you are considering taking up one of our Adult and Continuing Education courses. For more information on a course, and the opportunity to enrol online, please choose from one of the above subject areas.

Futures Courses

These lead to a formally recognised qualification (e.g. GCSE English) through one of our online, frequent, block or blended delivery methodologies.

Applications for futures courses starting in January have now closed. Our full range of futures courses will be starting again in September. Please check back in early June if you would like to enrol on one of these courses.

Fun Courses

These are generally short courses and start at the beginning of each term (September, January and April), covering areas such as Languages, Music, Art, Fitness and Cookery. For all of these courses, you will need to pay a fee when you enrol on the course. Online enrolment for these courses closes 1 week before the course starts.
