Don’t keep us a secret – invite a friend!

If you are currently a learner enrolled on a Merton Adult Education course for Spring 2020 or previously for Autumn 2019, why not introduce a friend who has not attended any of our courses during 2019/20?

Recommend a friend and you will both receive a 15% discount on tuition fees when you enrol on one of our Summer 2020 Adult Education courses.

Please inform Admission staff when you enrol that you would like to take up this offer on 020 8918 7777 or visit one of our Colleges and speak to the Admissions Team.

Check out our great range of Summer courses included in this offer now below!


From September 2016, Merton College took over the provision of the majority of Merton Council's adult education provision.

Courses that were previously run at the Whatley Avenue Centre moved across to our Merton Campus. So if you're looking to learn a new hobby, brush up your work-skills or want to make some new friends, we're certain we'll have a course for you.

Before you can enrol on our GCSE and English courses and some of our IT, business, childcare and teaching courses you will need to come in to College for an advice and guidance session. You can book your place on a session at the bottom of the page and by visiting our English and maths and ESOL pages.

Please remember to bring your passport or birth certificate with you after your advice and guidance session so you can enrol on a course.

Please also note that courses at Merton Adult Education are only available to those who are 19+.
