Course detail

The programme will be delivered in the central campus through a range of stimulating interactive sessions, and both individual and group activities. The course is supported by a day trip to London that is included in the programme and visits to local attractions (such as the famous Coventry Transport Museum), which will give participants an opportunity to visit areas of interest and consolidate their knowledge.

How will this course be taught

You will be guided and supported by staff who are passionate about the subjects they research and teach. We have experts across a whole range of disciplines including business, engineering, communications, English, media, emerging technology, sustainability, health, and psychology.

The classes draw on the latest information and research, are interactive, and focus on developing your knowledge and English language skills (if necessary). The academic sessions are interactive 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 transferable skills;
  • pastoral care and ongoing support throughout the programme.

After successful completion of your course(s) you will receive an official Coventry University transcript with individual grades for each course* and a certificate of attendance. The certificate of attendance is presented in the last week of your coursework and the transcript will be sent to you or your home university in September.
