When do NLN courses begin and how long do they run for?
The majority of National Learning Network programmes are open entry, which means that you can start at any time of the year. Our courses vary in length from six months to three years and you may get an extension if you need it.
The majority of courses run for 30 hours per week, although some people attend part-time particularly at the start. Normally, the course starts at 9am and finishes at 5pm, Monday to Thursday. On a Friday courses usually finish at 2.30pm. Students on National Learning Network courses get 25 days holidays per year (2/3 weeks in the summer and one week at Christmas).
