The Student Contract

The Student Contract

The small print of studying with us

Coventry University (“the University”) believes it is important that all applicants understand the key terms, conditions and regulations that the University will apply and rely upon in its future relationship with them. We have tried to make our small print user friendly but it’s important that you read the following sections so that you understand the ‘legal bits’ of the Student Contract.

By accepting your offer of a place with us, a Student Contract (“the Contract”) will be formed between you and the University. The Contract will detail all of your rights and also the obligations you will be bound by during your time as a student and will also contain all of the obligations that the University owes to you. The terms and conditions of the Contract are set out in the documents listed below:
