Build - Adult Education

Build is where London learns... The capital's ultimate destination for inspiring evening, daytime and weekend courses for adults. Each year we offer thousands of part-time short courses, from one-off sessions to year-long programmes, so choosing a course to fit around your busy life is easy. 

Most of our classes take place in our bright, modern flagship building in Covent Garden and are taught by inspiring, enthusiastic teachers, many of whom are leading experts and practitioners in their field.

97% of learners give their course a 4 or 5 star rating

Students complete a course evaluation at the end of their course. In 2017/18 73% of students gave their course 5 stars and 24% gave their course 4 stars. Student feedback is important to us as it helps us keep improving our courses. In September 2018 we launched a new online course evaluation system. You can find out why we have done this and how it works by visiting our page

Huge choice

With more than 5,000 courses every year, the choice is huge. You can search by subject, or keyword and filter your results by day, duration and price to find a course that fits your own requirements. Each course on the website has a detailed description, as well as reviews from previous students. But, if you prefer good old fashioned paper for relaxed browsing, you can also order your course guide easily
