Who may apply?
The Coventry University Summer School programme (“the Programme”) is open to students, HE professionals and members of the public. In order to apply to the Programme, Coventry University recommends that you are aged 18 or above by the time that the course starts. If you are below this age we may still consider you for admission provided we are satisfied you have reached the appropriate level of academic development and subject to our discretion. In order to comply with health and safety legislation, Coventry University may impose restrictions on the use of some facilities by students under 18. International students under 18 must also provide details of a parent or guardian in the UK. Eligibility criteria on the Programmes vary depending on academic profile and English language requirements. This criterion is detailed on the registration form.
How to enroll
Participants may enrol online by completing the Registration Form. The Registration Form contains a payment link for the non-refundable deposit of £150. Upon the payment of this fee, and as soon as availability and eligibility is verified, the participant will receive a conditional offer letter.
Acceptance of an application by the Summer School is made on the basis that in making the application a participant accepts these Terms & Conditions and agrees to make full payment by the deadline given in a conditional acceptance letter.
In the event the demand for the Programme exceeds the number of places available, the faculty will be responsible for a selection process which involves selecting the participant best matched to the eligibility criteria.
How many hours of classes will I have?
Each Summer School course will have a minimum of 16 hours of contact time, this may be in the form of lecture-style sessions, workshops, activities and group work sessions. This will be course dependant; you will receive the course timetable when you enrol on the course.
Do I need my laptop for studying?
You will not be required to use a laptop for classes. Our Coventry campus has computers which you will have access to. You can use these for your studies and to keep in contact with friends and family around the world. The Lanchester Library at the Coventry campus has over 450 computers for students to use, and there are also a limited number in The Hub, our student building. However, you can bring your laptops for personal use if you wish; free Wi-Fi access is available across campus and in the accommodation.
Do I need to purchase textbooks?
No, you will have access to the University Library.
Do I need to prepare for the Summer School before I arrive?
In most cases, we will simply ask that you to arrive with enthusiasm and excitement. In the few instances where preparation is required before arrival, you will be advised by the Summer Schools Team. As many courses suggest, you may require some existing experience or knowledge on the subject area to support with your experience at the Summer School.
