CU Coventry draws on the excellence in teaching and learning and the extensive experience of Coventry University. It will however operate independently from the University, as a separate organisation, in its own building and with its own staff; all based on the Coventry University campus. CU Coventry is designed for people who want to benefit from high quality courses but who have decided that the traditional student experience is not for them.
CU Coventry offers a range of study programmes to achieve academic qualifications in a variety of subject areas. The HNCs, HNDs and Honours Degree courses, so you can choose to sign up for a degree at the outset or build up to a degree by taking the HNC, then HND and then top up to a degree. By taking one level at a time you can spread your progression over a fixed period to fit in with your other commitments.
Our Foundation Year courses are ideal for those who need or want an alternative route in to higher education. Once successfully completed, the foundation year will provide a route in to a range of further study within CU Coventry or progression to courses at Coventry University or another university of your choice, subject to meeting relevant entry requirements.
All of our courses have been designed around the standards for professional body accreditation, which means that you will be prepared and have the opportunity to secure an additional award from a professional body alongside your normal studies.
On top of these academic courses that are available to you, we also run stand alone professional qualifications. Professional qualifications are recognised as not only providing an individual with industry-specific skills, but also as a demonstration of their commitment to continuous learning and development.
Additional benefits you will notice are that we will offer our classes, wherever possible and numbers permit, at times to suit your life. We deliver our classes in 6-week blocks. Each block of learning offers you the chance to achieve a set of professional skills that are valued by employers and to develop your academic knowledge too.
Our course teams will contain both academics and practising professionals. Together they can help you see your subject in an all-round way. You manage your study to suit your work responsibilities, and personal commitments, and all of this can be achieved at a price that represents value for money.
