University of Liverpool Students and Continuing Education

Enrolling on a Course

There are a limited number of free places on most Continuing Education courses reserved for students. However, there are a few things you need to know before applying for one of them:

  • There are no free places on courses in Modern Languages
  • There is an administrative fee of £15 for each booking
  • There is no additional charge to students who wish to study for credit
  • Free places only become available once a course has reached financial viability
  • This means that any application for a free place may be held back until they are released - and this could be right up to a week before the course starts. So, if you want to be sure of getting a  place, you should consider enrolling as a fee paying student
  • University of Liverpool students are entitled to a reduced fee (the middle band)
  • If you want to go on the list for a free place please complete the Undergraduate registration formand email it to    
  • If you want to be guaranteed a place – the easiest route is to apply online though the online store. You will need your student number and a credit /debit card to do this

Studying for Credit

  • You can opt to take credit at no extra charge (applies only to students who have a free place)
  • Any credit gained will automatically appear on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) and academic transcript
  •  CE credit cannot be counted towards your degree studies

UoL Student Attendance on CE Courses and the HEAR

  • Students who attend  CE courses on a not for credit basis and who want the attendance to be recorded on the HEAR, must attend a minimum of 70% of the total course hours

Students are responsible for obtaining verification of attendance. You should:

  • Download the appropriate Student Verification Letter from the CE website
  • At the end of the course, get the letter signed by the course lecturer (who will check the register to verify the required number of hours)
  • Submit this to the CE office within 2 weeks of the last course meeting
  • CE will record the attendance on the student’s record in Spider
  • Course attendance will then appear in your e-portfolio from which you have the option to add it section 6.2 of the HEAR

Students who submit work for assessment, but who do not meet the required standard, may still have their attendance recorded using the above procedure.
