Join us in January

What is the condensed first year study option?

The condensed first year study option allows you to start your full-time undergraduate degree in January and begin your second and subsequent years in September. You will receive the same high quality learning experience as those students starting in September 2020 and are taught the same modules.

Your first year is delivered across two semesters starting from January to April and then from May to August. This provides you with the opportunity to start your university degree during this academic year and continue on your journey to achieving your degree alongside those students starting in September 2020.

What's more, if you are a UK student you can still apply for the full first year's tuition fee loan and maintenance loan from Student Finance England as you would have if you started an undergraduate degree in September 2020.

How to apply?

You can apply for these full-time undergraduate courses to study at Coventry University or Coventry University London whether you are from the UK, or the EU or are an international student from outside the EU.


EU students are recommended to apply and arrive in the UK before 31 December 2020 to gain further benefits. For example, you won't need to apply for a visa or be restricted on the length of hours you can work
