Work for Coventry University Online
Coventry University Online is a wholly-owned subsidiary company of the Coventry University Group, established in September 2017 to deliver the university’s distance learning ambitions. Online education is a rapidly expanding market, fuelled by international demand from students wishing to gain a qualification without the requirement to physically attend campus.
We have grown from nothing to an organisation today of over 90 colleagues. Although we have many geographically remote tutors, the business is predominately based in Coventry offering many different roles. Our Studio team for example, responsible for the design and production of online course content, includes Project Managers, Learning Designers and Digital Media Producers. And our Student Experience team, responsible for looking after our students from enrolment all the way through to graduation, features Student Experience Officers and Progression Coaches.
The company has scaled quickly to deliver against an ambitious plan. Our portfolio of online degrees consists largely of postgraduate courses across business, health and engineering disciplines currently, although we recently launched our first online undergraduate degree in International Business. We also offer a number of shorter qualifications and courses through various collaborations with other universities such as Deakin in Australia, and external partners such as the Institute of Coding (IoC), City of London Police and OCN.
In an increasingly crowded market, we are standing out by delivering high quality education with dedicated and tailored student support. Further still, the way we structure our degrees is unique – the first two weeks of every module are available on an entirely open basis, free of charge, able to be studied anywhere in the world – allowing students to ‘try before they buy’.
In our first two years, we delivered to over 150,000 students across hundreds of courses. And Coventry University recently ranked fourth in the first ever digital University World Rankings (WURMP 2020), outperforming some huge international brands including Harvard and MIT as well as domestic competitors such as the Open University.
So, if you want to be part of something new; something different; something that’s helping to shape the future of Higher Education – come and be part of our journey.
