Make 2020 the year to Refresh your Future by enrolling on a course to upskill – or embark on a new challenge and begin a course in something completely new.

NWRC’s Campuses in Derry, Strabane and Limavady offer a wide range of courses in a number of areas, whether you want to take on a higher education course (post A-Level), try a short course to improve you career prospects, or simply start a new hobby.

There are huge benefits to studying for a qualification part-time. Not only can you continue to work while you study, but most part-time courses are structured to allow you to balance your studies with your other commitments. NWRC offers a range of employer-focussed higher education options which include foundation degrees, higher national diplomas, higher national certificates and higher level apprenticeships - all on a part-time basis.

Part-time study allows you to balance different parts of your life, and to study at a rate that suits your personal circumstances. A part time course will allow you to juggle earning with learning, offering a viable alternative for those who can’t commit to full-time courses, and usually involves committing an afternoon or an evening each week to attend classes or lectures.

Taking a part time course can also boost your career, allowing you to develop new skills – the majority of NWRC’s part-time courses are accredited ensuring that you are developing the knowledge and skills that current employers are on the lookout for.

In the first few hours on the first day of enrolments last year, a number of the college’s most popular courses filled-up, and those who wish to ensure they have a place for September are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The college offers special reduced fees for those receiving particular benefits, to make its courses as accessible as possible to those on all levels of income.

For those who have been out of education for some time, returning to learning may be a daunting prospect, but with its fantastic new facilities and student support services, the College aims to make the learning experience as positive as possible for learners of all ages.

For those unsure of which course will help them fulfil their personal ambitions, the college provides support and guidance with dedicated careers and student services staff on hand both before enrolment and during your time at the college.

Course information is now available to view online at, providing details of the hundreds of part-time courses on offer at the college’s Strabane, Derry, Springtown, Greystone and Limavady campuses.
