CU Coventry is a subsidiary of Coventry University. It has been in operation since its launch in 2012, and was formerly known as Coventry University College. Its campus is located in the city of Coventry, England.
Coventry University College was founded in 2012 as a subsidiary of Coventry University, taking on its new name CU Coventry in 2017. The institution is labelled as a "no frills", alternative to traditional higher education. Students that graduate with a degree receive it from Coventry University, since they are recognised by the UK government as the awarding body. It has expanded over time, launching a new range of short courses called Connect to help people access university, and also hosting community events.
