When & Where
Mary Ward Centre
is London’s Adult Education College with a difference. We are a friendly place to learn with a diverse range of affordable courses. Our central London location makes it easily accessible, and students will enjoy the experience of working in a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian building in the calm surroundings of Queen Square.
Our courses are taught at all levels, from introductory to advanced, by experienced well-qualified tutors. From Art to Zumba, Archaeology to Ukulele, Computing and Business to Psychology and Counselling, there is plenty of choice to meet your interests. Many courses lead to a certificate so you can add to your qualifications but there is also lots of opportunity to pursue study purely for the pleasure of learning. The Mary Ward Café is open to the public and is popular with students, tutors and staff as well as local businesses. The Centre also has a roof garden which is open to students, tutors and staff in the summer months.
