About Us

CU Scarborough is part of the Coventry University Group. Opened in September 2016, our £14M teaching facility is part of the new £50M Sports and Education Campus, just a 10 minute walk from the railway station.

The range of academic qualifications we offer; Foundation Years, Higher National Certificates, Higher National Diplomas and Degrees, are all awarded by Coventry University. This means that a CU Scarborough student graduates with a Coventry University degree.

The main difference between CU Scarborough and other universities is the way that we teach. At most institutions you will be taught eight modules (subject areas) of your chosen course over two semesters (four subjects per semester). At CU Scarborough, for all courses, we teach four modules per year, one subject area at a time over four intensive six week blocks. There are no traditional end of year examinations to worry about. Instead we use a variety of methods to assess our students such as assignments, phase-tests or presentations, during and at the end of each module.
