Evening Courses Applications and Terms and Conditions

Our Evening Courses are extremely popular, so we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.

Central’s Evening Courses can be taken independently or consecutively to form a unified programme of study and many students take a number of Evening Courses to build a wide range of skills. We work hard to support students’ learning needs, for example, group sizes are generally small so that tutors are able to nurture and develop creativity.

Our Evening Courses are extremely popular, so we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment. You can apply to enrol for the whole year in order to secure your place for all terms. Please note that places are not confirmed until we receive both an online application form and the full course fee. All classes are open access and mixed ability.

Courses will only commence if we receive the minimum number of applicants required, which varies from course to course. Therefore, a course can be cancelled at any point before it starts. Please keep this in mind if you are an overseas applicant and ensure you check with us before you book flights.

How To Apply

Please submit your application directly to the School by completing the online application form.

Once your application has been processed, you will receive a registration email with your Student ID number and account details. You will need to quote your Student ID Number when you contact us to pay and confirm your place on the course.

Please note that your application and payment must be received by the last Thursday before the course start date, however the course may fill up before then:
