Welcome to Coventry University

A postgraduate degree can help you get to where you want to be. Whether you're determined to progress up the career ladder or you'd like to become an expert in your area.

Teaching Excellence

Our lecturers and tutors are always willing to help students and we can prove it too. We are rated second in the UK for teaching excellence. (Times Higher Education UK metrics ranking, 2017).

Quality courses and flexible study options

If you're balancing responsibilities but still want to follow your passion, you don’t need to worry, because there is a way! We have flexible study options available such as part-time courses – so you can fit learning into your schedule. You also have the opportunity to spread the cost of your study, with our flexible pay-per-module payment options.

Think Smart. Learn Fast. Get Online.


There's more than one way to study. We offer postgraduate degrees and certificates through teaching, online learning or research.

Instead of attending lectures and following a fixed timetable, you will study at a time and place to suit you. Your living room, the bus you catch to work, the park next to your house – all of these could become your lecture theatre.

We provide tutor support, study materials, and a 24/7 access to our online library and the virtual learning environment.


Employability is embedded throughout our courses. With employability units in every faculty alongside real-world teaching, lecturers from industry, and the unique Professional Development module.

Our Careers Service can support you with advice and guidance. If you want to make your career work, we can help you enhance your employability.

Supporting you

We offer a range of helpful services to our postgraduates, from social and wellbeing to academic support. So, whether you're looking for quiet places to study or to network and be seen, we're here to help.

A postgraduate qualification is an investment in your future and studies show that postgraduates earn more on average over a lifetime than undergraduates. However, we know that the cost of a postgraduate course can be a barrier for some. Thankfully there is a wide range of financial support available for postgraduate study, including loans, flexible payment options, discount and scholarships.
