Centre for Open Learning
Acting Director: Medeé Rall
Centre Profile
The Centre for Open Learning comprises two divisions:
the Third Term and the Public and Continuing Education
Divisions. The Public and Continuing Education Division
is responsible for the annual Summer School programme.
This programme encourages a diverse community of
students to enjoy adult study by making University
research available to the general public, by drawing
on different disciplines and by stimulating debate
about important issues. The Public and Continuing
Education Division also offers continuing education
opportunities to the general public, work-related
courses aimed at career development and customised
courses designed for specific organisations. It also
makes focused interventions in the adult education
and cultural sector, working with other partners. The
Third Term Division offers University accredited courses
to University students during the University’s winter
and summer vacations. This division draws on the
University’s academic resources for its courses.
