Welcome to the Centre for the Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS)

The main goal of the Centre for the Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) is to coordinate and administer the University's new Programme in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (PLAS). The Programme enables prospective students to follow ‘stand alone’ units from a broad range of areas in the arts and sciences. In this way, students have the opportunity to study at their own pace. The Programme allows students to use accumulated Units to achieve a Certificate, a Diploma, a Higher Diploma and a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, without any limits of time.


PLAS is an innovative programme because students get to choose their own programme of studies from the range of Units offered and the ‘bite-size’ approach provides maximum flexibility in terms of attendance. This Programme offers a new opportunity to individuals who would like to start or continue studying at university level.
