Welcome
Welcome to the 2017-18 Continuing Education prospectus. Whether you are a regular
student or new to CE we hope you will find something to inspire and excite you in this new
programme of short courses and lectures.

Continuing Education is open to all; no entrance qualifications are required. Our programme
is taught by friendly and expert staff who will guide you through your studies whether you
are studying just for interest or committing to working for credit to add that extra depth to
your learning experience.

So, what do we have in store that is new for 2017-18? In terms of subjects we are delighted
to offer an expanded Science programme that is now split into two sections: Science and
Engineering and Health and Life Sciences. Or, having experienced a turbulent year in
national and international politics, perhaps you might be tempted by The Nation State in
Crisis or How Will Capitalism End? As in previous years, CE will maintain its presence off-
campus in a range of venues in Sefton and on the Wirral but we are delighted to introduce
two new venues in 2017-18, in Crosby and Formby, and look forward to welcoming students
to the courses based there. For the first time we are also offering a session in London. Why
not take A Stroll through Ancient Egypt with an expert lecturer to gain real insight into the
exhibits in the Egyptology collection at the British Museum.

In this introductory welcome I would like to take the opportunity to thank two important
groups of people. Firstly all the individuals in our collaborating organisations who support
the development of our programme and who so willingly host our visits, courses and free
events. These organisations include schools, sixth form colleges, libraries, art galleries and
museums (you can see a selection on page 6). The second group is our students who so
enthusiastically return each year and make such a valuable contribution to the life of each
course through their active participation and interest. We welcome comments from all
students, both positive and negative, and I am very pleased to report that the majority by far
are complementary such as that received just recently:

The range of courses on offer makes choosing a course difficult, but to date whichever
course I have chosen has met a high standard both in content and presentation.

In 2017-18 Continuing Education will move into the management structure of the Faculty of
Humanities and Social Sciences but will continue to offer its broad range of courses from
around the University. We hope that you find one to your liking.

Head of Continuing Education

Horticulture & Botany


Lecture Series
Join us for a new series of courses and lectures exploring the fascinating world of plants, gardening
and garden design. Botany is the study of how plants grow. The discoveries and research in this field of
science underpin how we garden, farm, manage woodlands, parks & meadows. Botany also lets us use
plants for a whole range of medicines, food, clothing, manufacturing and construction.
The evening lecture series will introduce you to some of the gardens and parks on the Wirral, each of
which play an important part in the development of gardens internationally, and a closer look at the often
mysterious but vital work of Botanic Gardens, explore the uses of medicinal plants and introduce you to the
importance of the humble seed from a gardeners and a botanists perspective. Our two CE Saturday one
day courses offer practical gardening and design advice allowing you to get the best of your plants and
garden. Each individual lecture is 9 (You can book all four horticultural talks for a discounted fee of 30).

the emphasis is very much on doing, with
a wide range of courses that serve as a
springboard towards creating and enjoying.
Take yourself forward with your guitar or piano playing, singing,
songwriting or sketching. We aim for our courses to be run in
a friendly and supportive atmosphere, ideal for beginners, with
ample opportunity for tutors to focus on individual students and
their needs.
Advance your technical skills through courses on digital music
production and recording techniques, television production or
camera skills. Courses are practical and hands-on, and aim to
establish a firm grounding for you to develop your own unique
abilities and aptitudes.
Feed your curiosity, discover new music, or learn the context and
background to the music you already know and enjoy. This year
we focus on influences on the classical music of England, and the
distinctive music of Russia. All classes are welcoming and relaxed,
with opportunities to learn from each other and make new friends.
All courses at the University of Liverpool unless stated.
