Coventry completes 'capital, city, coast' offering

Coventry University's new London campus officially opens doors to students for the very first time

Posted by Rebecca Paddick | September 30, 2017 | Estates

The new site joins CU Coventry and CU Scarborough to form Coventry University Group’s CU offering which focuses on providing a high-quality, low-cost, career-focused model of higher education which is flexible to fit around the lives of students.

The opening signifies the beginning of CU’s completely unique ‘capital, city, coast’ offering - giving students studying certain subjects the chance to study exactly the same course in the UK’s capital, in the city of Coventry or in Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast.

In a higher education first, students will have the opportunity to transfer their studies to a different campus after completing each academic year.

John Dishman, Pro Vice Chancellor and CEO of CU Group, said: “CU Coventry, CU Scarborough and our newly launched CU London site champion a new kind of higher education.

The opening of CU London means we have now been able to take our flexible learning offer to a whole new level by giving students the chance to experience life in three completely different places and still study exactly the same course, while not being tied to the area for the full three years

“They put the spotlight on life-shaped learning by providing students with flexible courses, including part-time and Saturday options, which allow students to fit their timetable around other commitments such as part-time employment.

“The opening of CU London means we have now been able to take our flexible learning offer to a whole new level by giving students the chance to experience life in three completely different places and still study exactly the same course, while not being tied to the area for the full three years.

“Students on certain courses will be able to spend the full three years at their preferred campus if they wish, or divide their studies between two or all three of the CU sites. This new offering will give our students even more choice and flexibility.”
