CU Scarborough offers a range of exciting courses taught in a unique way, tailored to the needs of our learners. We are firmly focused on teaching and learning that will lead to academic qualifications.

We have set our standards high and we will need you to commit fully to your course.

That’s not to say you won’t have fun along the way, but we want you to achieve your potential – and that means working hard.

Learning model

Our courses run in six-week blocks and we offer up to six of these each calendar year. Normally you will study four blocks per year.

Each study block will require the equivalent of approximately 300 hours of your time. Normally, 120 of these will be in class and the rest is completed away from the classroom. All study is guided so you’ll have plenty of support.

As a full-time student a standard learning block will include 18 hours of teaching each week in groups of approximately 15-30 students.

Depending on the course you have chosen, you’ll attend morning or afternoon sessions. You will also need to attend one two-hour tutorial each week. Tutorial groups are much smaller, usually about five students. This means that we can better ensure that you have understood the week’s learning and that you are ready for the next.
