At CU Coventry, we strive to deliver our part-time degree courses in a way that suits adults with busy lives. Part-time courses currently run on Saturdays, with our part-time engineering courses running on weekday evenings.
Unlike other universities, it could take only three years to complete a part-time degree at CU Coventry. Each course is made up of short blocks of six week durations. You can study up to four blocks in one year. You need to study 12 blocks for a degree, 8 for an HND and 4 for the HNC. However, you can choose to slow the pace down and study your course one block at a time.
All of our part-time courses include classroom based and online learning. We provide tutorial support to assist you outside the normal class times and we make it our business to make sure you are progressing well with your studies.

University on a Saturday
If you're working during the week, you may find it convenient to study for your degree or professional qualification on a Saturday. Our degree courses are delivered all day on Saturday in addition to online learning. You study with us for up to 18 weeks per year, broken up into three six-week blocks. Our professional courses are offered throughout the year on a Saturday and are either a full day or half a day.
University in the evening
If like many people, you regularly find yourself busy with other commitments over the weekend, the option to study during weekday evenings could be the ideal solution. A typical evening course will run over week day evenings (up to two per week) 5.30pm-9.30pm. As with the Saturday degree course, evening degree courses will be delivered over six-week blocks and there are up to three blocks per year.
