Part-time

Part-time

Part-time courses at CU Scarborough 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 weeks. You will usually study three blocks in one year. You need to study 12 blocks for a degree, 8 for a HND and 4 for the HNC. 

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.

Study one day a week

For many prospective students you may find it convenient to study for your degree or professional qualification on just one day a week.

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.

Depending on the course, teaching normally takes place 9am-5pm one day a week.
Please note: part-time courses run subject to numbers.

Study in the evening

If like many people, you regularly find yourself busy with other commitments during the daytime, you could find the option to study during evenings the ideal solution. 

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.

Depending on the course, teaching normally takes place 6pm-10pm two evenings a week.
Please note: part-time courses run subject to numbers.

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.
