  • The biggest choice of short courses in London

  • Great value for money

    City Lit short courses are available at range of affordable prices. Courses start from as little as £20 for a one-off session or taster class. Government funding means we are able to offer courses to Londoners at lower prices than they would be otherwise.

  • Learn in the centre of London

    Our purpose-built facilities in Covent Garden mean we are ideally located for Londoners. Choose a course after work, during the daytime or discover a new passion or skill at the weekend.

    City Lit has partnerships with various local and online shops related to subjects taught at the college including textbooks, music, CASS Arts and bookshops.
