Learning model

Studying on a full-time basis requires you to study four blocks per year. Students will only study one module per block over the course of six weeks.* 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.

*Excludes our Nursing courses.
