Different degree experience

Unlike the traditional university experience, CU Coventry gives you alternative assessment methods to help you showcase your ability in a way that works for you. Many courses are assessed via coursework or practical examinations throughout the year so you can gain a regular understanding of how you are progressing.

Our courses are taught in small class sizes (less than 50) in order to help you enhance your learning. With structured timetables designed to minimise your time on-site, our career-focused courses enable you to learn one subject at a time in a supportive environment.

We have a strong focus on student support as we know that getting back into higher education after a break or juggling both education and personal life may not be as easy, so we provide a number of support options that will help you ease your path into education.
