At City Lit, we aim to help you achieve your goals. As the capital’s ultimate destination for evening, weekend and daytime courses, we inspire 60,000 Londoners with over 5,000 courses each year.

We pride ourselves on offering an array of courses across a massive range of subject areas including art and design, history, writing, computing, massage, languages and much more. Catering to the busy Londoner, our courses run during the daytime, evenings and weekends to help you find something that fits in with your busy schedule.

Many of our courses take place in our Keeley Street site situated in London’s buzzing Covent Garden. This site hosts a range of purpose built facilities including our Student Centre and LibraryDigital and Design Lab and Lunch Room to help you get the most out of your studies and time at City Lit. Studying at one of our other sites? Don’t worry, you can still benefit from the facilities and resources at Keeley Street.

Our courses are taught by expert tutors, many of whom are industry professionals looking to pass on their knowledge and wisdom. 

To find your dream course, you can search by subject, keyword, date, duration and price using our website. Alternatively, you can call us on 020 7831 7831 or send us a message through our Contact Us page  to find out more about out courses and to book. 

93% of learners give their course a 4 or 5 star rating

Students complete a course evaluation at the end of their course. In 2018/19 69% of students gave their course 5 stars and 24% gave their course 4 stars. Student feedback is important to us as it helps us keep improving our courses. In September 2018 we launched a new online course evaluation system. You can find out why we have done this and how it works by visiting our 'Course evaluations have gone digital' page.
