Superheroes, sci-fi or decluttering your home
A history of monsters, a study of Star Trek and a six-week course presented by a doctor of decluttering are just some of the options available next term at Glasgow Clyde College.
Almost 40 eight-week evening courses have been announced by the college as one of its most diverse programmes to date, with face-to-face teaching for leisure classes resuming after a one-year pause due to the pandemic.
Sci-fi fans can put their Trekkie knowledge to the test with a ‘Star Trek: The Evolution’ class, while comic enthusiasts will be able to learn about Justice League or Batman in two courses about the famous DC characters.
Anyone whose house is in need of an urgent spring clean can hear from three professional declutterers, including Dr Zemirah Moffat who will share tips on ‘Calming Chaos in your Home & Life’, examining relationships with possessions and how make the most of an annual clear-out.
Another unusual offering is ‘A History of Monsters’, examining the cultural, historical and theological significance of mythical creations such as vampires, zombies and dragons.
While some of the courses will still be taking place online, the Love to Learn programme will be restarting classroom-based teaching for the first time since Glasgow Clyde College closed its three campuses to students in March 2020.
John Canning, Head of Business Development at Glasgow Clyde College said: “It’s amazing to be able to resume in-person Love to Learn teaching for the first time in over a year, welcoming students back with such a unique collection of courses.
“We’re proud to attract learners of all ages including some students who’ve been in attendance for over 12 years and a few who are regular participants well into their eighties. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, indulge in a hobby or make some friends.
"Our lecturers are looking forward to the programme starting again, eager to share their knowledge around subjects which they are so passionate about. For many attendees, these courses are a hugely important part of their lives, socialising and learning new things in an informal setting.”
Glasgow Clyde College’s Love to Learn courses take place at Langside, Cardonald and Anniesland Campuses, or online.
