Saturday University

At CU Coventry, we strive to deliver our degree courses in a way that suits adults with busy lives, and as such we offer Saturday University.

All of our courses include a variety of classroom based and online learning. We provide tutorial support to assist you outside the normal class times and we make it our priority to make sure you are progressing well with your studies.


If you are working during the week, you may find it convenient to study your course on a Saturday. Our Saturday University courses are delivered all day on Saturday. This method of teaching is intensive and as such requires additional online learning, which you can work around your life.
