A Modern University Experience

CU Scarborough can offer you a brand-new style of university education, which is flexible, fits around your life and gives you the skills, qualifications and placements you need to be an attractive candidate to employers.

CU Scarborough is a wholly owned subsidiary of Coventry University. We offer a range of academic qualifications, including Honours Degree courses, Foundation Years, Access to Higher Education (HE) Diplomas, Higher National Certificates and Higher National Diplomas, all of which are awarded by Coventry University.

Our campus structure provides you with the opportunity to move between each location after completing an academic year, if you wish.
