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. In the event that the minimum number of students required is not acheived by two weeks before the course begins we will unfortunately need to cancel the course. You are advised not to incur any additional costs related to the course (e.g. flight and/or accomodation costs) until after this date. If in doubt, please check with the Short Courses office.
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 and places are only confirmed upon receipt of full payment:
Term 1 - 2nd October 2017
Term 2 - 15th January 2018
Term 3 - 23rd April 2018
Term dates for 2018/2019 are to follow.
You can pay by credit/debit card over the telephone on +44 (0)20 7722 8183*.
Alterantively, you can pay by cash at Central’s Reception. Please email us in advance to arrange a time to come in.

We can offer you a refund, minus a 15% cancellation fee, if you decide to withdraw from a course up to 14 days before it starts.
Unfortunately, within two weeks of the start date we are unable to offer any refunds.
We can defer your place to the next term with 7 days’ notice prior to the course starting. Please note we only offer this once and you are only able to defer to the following term. If you have deferred your place, you are not able to get a refund at a later date.
Once a course has started we are unable to offer any deferrals so please make sure your schedule will allow you to attend all sessions.
Central offers a concessionary rate for the majority of evening courses as indicated on the website and you may be eligible if you can submit proof with your application form of being an EU citizen in receipt of benefits for unemployment and/or disability in the UK.
