How we Teach 

You will be guided and supported by staff who are passionate about the subjects they research and teach. The academic sessions are interactive and focus on developing your knowledge and allow you to learn from different perspectives.

Our courses are based on four principles:

  • course content from leading academics and industry experts;

  • industry specific fieldtrips which will be embedded into the programmes;

  • cultural and social activities allowing development of transferrable skills;

  • pastoral care and ongoing support throughout the programme.

The campus offers professional study environments with state-of-the-art facilities, which will enable you to learn and develop while making Coventry your home over the summer.
