Through the web interface, you will be able to submit regular assignments and assessments, including homework, projects, tests and papers.

The online classroom consists of a community of students, organised into small groups to form virtual classrooms. Expert tutors are available to answer questions about subject material, coordinate class discussions, assist with assignments, and provide personalised support.
At Coventry University College there are no traditional final examinations to worry about. Instead, we’ll assess your learning through course work and phase tests. Assessments take place during and at the end of each six-week block. Tutors can provide support through regular updates and tutorials.TEACHING CONTACT HOURS
