Postgraduate and Research courses
Coventry University has a long and successful tradition of providing postgraduate taught and research opportunities and has been widely recognised for the high quality of its provision.
The University has recognised that people undertake postgraduate work for a variety of reasons - for the intellectual challenge, because of a long-standing interest, to improve their job or career prospects, and so on. That is why we have built considerable flexibility into our provision and give important emphasis to links with employers.
Postgraduate study can be undertaken for a variety of awards ranging from a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma to a full Master's degree (MA, MBA, MSc, LLM).
To make an application, please complete and return a 'Taught Postgraduate Application Form'. The completed form should be sent by post, fax or as an e-mail attachment to the International Office. If possible, attach the following documents:

- Evidence of work experience, if applicable
You may be asked to produce further documentation as your application progresses.
Students also have the opportunity to study a wide range of postgraduate programmes commencing in January/February and throughout the year.
Some postgraduate students maybe able to find employment within the University through the Coventry University Bureau of Employment (CUBE). Whether you are interested in part-time lecturing, clerical/admin work or becoming a student proctor supporting your University peers, each of the opportunities provides an excellent complement to your studies.
