It changed its name from Coventry Polytechnic to Coventry University, but its roots can be traced as far back as 1843 to the Coventry College of Design.

University courses:

Undergraduate courses lead to first-degree qualifications such as BA, BEng or BSc and traditionally follow on from A-level study (or BTEC, AVCE, A2-levels, etc). Undergraduate courses are designed in modular form to give students choice and flexibility. Postgraduate courses encompass an extensive range of opportunities for graduates to further their educational experience and professional training through research and taught courses. These lead to a variety of awards, such as Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, MA, MBA, MSc, et cetera. Applicants are expected, generally, to already have an undergraduate degree.

Almost all Coventry University courses can be studied on a part-time basis. Those labelled part-time have been developed specifically to meet needs of students studying in evening or on day release. Other courses may be studied on a part-time basis, alongside full-time students, with times for lectures and tutorials potentially varying considerably.


All applicants for undergraduate courses are required to apply through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service UCAS. This means you will have to complete a special on-line UCAS application form in order to secure a place at the university.


The university provides a wide variety of high quality, conveniently located accommodation for students to choose — from catered halls to self catered halls and houses — something to suit everyone.
