Please note we have used "courses" to broadly cover courses, lectures, exhibitions and any other single "experience", and that we only profile a small selection of courses from each provider. In doing so we hope that this will help you to discover where to explore for other similar courses, without having to wade through thousands of courses to find what you really want.

Entry – typically the shortest courses where no prior knowledge of the subject is needed.
Explore – may be short, may be longer, but we assume that typically you have an existing interest in the topic and would like to know more, and are prepared to commit more time and perhaps pay a bit more.
Expert – we reserve this for the courses that are the most intensive, specialist in nature and perhaps comparatively more costly.


We have divided courses according to whether you can do them at home/where you want, or whether you have to go to a specific place.
In Person – you need to go to where the course is delivered.
Online – you do the course where you want


Many of us don’t realise that there is a lot of free material online, so we give you the option to choose if you only want to look at free “content”.
