City Lit - Adult Education

At City Lit, we aim to help you to achieve your goals. As one of the country’s leading destinations for evening, weekend and daytime courses, we inspire thousands of learners with over 5,000 courses each year.

We pride ourselves on offering an array of online and face-to-face courses across a massive range of subject areas including art and design, history, writing, computing, massage, languages and much more. We cater to those with busy schedules, with courses running during the daytime, evenings and weekends. 

Our online courses mean that you can learn a new skill or take up a new hobby from the comfort of your own home. Learners from across Britain are able to benefit from joining the City Lit community without the need to travel into central London.

Many of our face-to-face 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 Library, Digital 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. 

Browsing our website can help inspire and give you a good idea of the types of courses we offer here at City Lit. To find your dream course you can search by subject, keyword, date, duration and price. Alternatively, you can call us on 020 7831 7831 or send us a message through our Contact Us page to find out more about our courses and to book your place. 

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

Students complete a course evaluation at the end of their course. Student feedback is important to us as it helps us keep improving our courses. In September 2018 we launched an 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
