New Year, new opportunities for personal growth
People who want to learn something new next year are being encouraged to try a short course with the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Sussex.
There are courses on offer for anyone with an interest in: archaeology; art and culture; astronomy; film and literature; internet and multimedia; landscape and nature; music. There are also a number of professional development courses, including counselling, management, marketing, and negotiation skills. Courses are taught on the University's Falmer campus and at venues throughout Brighton, Hove and Sussex, and carry higher education credit.
To get out and about in the Sussex countryside this spring, try a local interest course which includes fun and informative fieldtrips, such as: 'Down and Town: a history of the South Downs', 'Marine ecology: Sussex wildlife from starfish to whales', 'Visiting Medieval Sussex' or 'Sussex natural history: a Weald and Downland view'.
All CCE's short courses are open to anyone, with concessionary rates for those on low incomes. One past student says, "I've studied so many different and interesting subjects. The great thing about CCE open courses is that you don't need any qualifications - you just need to be inquisitive". CCE tutors are experienced in teaching adults and understand the anxieties of people who may not have studied for some time.
To request your copy of the guide to courses running from January to July 2003, phone CCE on 01273 678040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . Details of all courses can also be found on-line at http://www.sussex.ac.uk/Units/CCE .
