Those cold dark nights might make us want to curl up in a ball in front of the fire eating chocolate, but let’s get up and kick off 2017 with energy and positivity!

Don’t hibernate. Educate.

The start of a new year is a fantastic time to commit to learning something new and enrol onto a course at Barnsley College. You don’t have to wait until September as there are a wide range of part-time courses starting from January onwards.

How to enrol

Take a look below at what’s on offer and if you see something that you fancy fill in our Part-time Application Form – it’s that easy!

College re-opens after the Christmas break on Tuesday 3 January 2017 and someone will contact you then to arrange your enrolment and give you any further information you need, such as eligibility for free or reduced course fees. Take a look at our Part-time Enrolment page to find out what you need to bring to college when you enrol.
