We offer a range of different prices for our courses, government funding means we are able to offer courses at lower cost than they would be otherwise.
We also offer senior and concessionary fees on most of our courses.
Our specialist tutors – practising writers, artists, performers and practitioners – are brilliant at communicating their enthusiasm.
Listen to our students telling us their stories about why they chose City Lit, and what they think about their experience.
City Lit was also rated as good with outstanding features in our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2016.
