Accelerated Degrees

Accelerated Degrees

CU Coventry is now offering Accelerated Degrees. This will allow students who study with us to complete a full degree course in only two years.

Studying this mode will mean you will receive 18 hours of teaching each week alongside a 2 hour tutorial. You’ll attend morning or afternoon sessions every weekday, Monday-Friday. Classes will consist of no more than 50 students and are taught by academics and leading professionals. 

Studying for an Accelerated Degree will require you to study six blocks per year. At CUC students only study one module per block over the course of six weeks. During the block students will be required to complete two coursework based assignments, meaning there are no end of year exams.

Accelerated Degrees 2018/19


Fees for Accelerated Degrees start at £9,250 per year, completing a 2-year degree will therefore mean total costs start at £18,500.

Students studying via the accelerated mode are eligible for both tuition fee loans and maintenance payments.

Your maintenance payments will be split across the 6 blocks evenly, which will ensure you’re funded throughout the academic year.

Multiple Intakes

There are two entry points during the year for Accelerated Degrees - September and January.
