When can I book an evening or weekend course?

Applications are open now, you can book on the website using a debit/credit card.

What if I can't book online?

You can make a telephone booking by calling Student Services on 0141 375 5193. You can also come and speak to us in person at our City Campus, Glasgow.

What happens when I book?

You'll be asked to complete a simple registration process to create your account and complete the booking process. You'll need a current email and we'll use this to contact you if we need to. Once you’ve set this up, you can view your booked courses and confirm the start date, time, location and fee.

What about fees?

Our evening and weekend courses have a fee which is shown on the course information page but you may get some help depending on your income. 

Do you offer fee waivers?

On some courses we have a limited number of fee waivers. To check availability and book call Student Services.  To hold your fee waiver place you'll be asked for a £5 deposit.  You'll then need to complete the fee waiver application form and take it to our Finance Office together with proof of eligibility within 5 working days to secure your place.
