Part-time courses at CU London are delivered in a structured format in order to suit the needs of learners with busy lives. This study mode is suitable for those looking for a convenient route into higher education. 

Each course is made up of short blocks of six week durations, and you can study up to three blocks in one year. You need to study 12 blocks for a degree, 8 for a HND and 4 for a HNC. However, you can choose to slow the pace down and study your course one block at a time.

Unlike traditional institutions, there are no end of year exams. Assessment methods could include coursework, essays, practical or project work, group work, presentations and tests. The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the student achieving the intended learning outcomes.

The contact hours may be made up of a combination of face-to-face teaching, individual and group tutorials, and online classes and tutorials. Our courses are taught by academics and industry professionals.

Please refer to your specific course webpage to review how your course will be assessed and the number of contact hours you will receive each week.

2020/21 courses

Start a course between September 2020 and June 2021.

University on a Saturday

Studying on a Saturday is a popular choice amongst students - it gives you the opportunity to fit in higher education alongside your full-time work, or other commitments. 

Teaching normally takes place on Saturday 9am-6pm.

University in the evening

Evening study is an option which appeals to learners that are looking for higher education courses taught outside of mainstream teaching hours. This could enable those who previously thought a degree course would be unobtainable due to time constraints. 

Our evening study option is subject to demand, so please outline evening study is your preferred choice during the application process.

Following the COVID-19 updates, we have had to close our June part-time intake to students starting a course with us. Our next intake for new students will be in September. Returning students will not be affected at the moment, but will be taught via other methods.
