Why Coventry College?
A future without qualifications and/or skills is becoming an increasingly difficult one. Coventry College is here to give the people of Coventry the support, information, training, skills and knowledge to help them progress in their careers and realise ambitions.
Learning for all stages and all ages
From entry-level qualifications through to degree-level and specialist professional courses, there’s something here for learners with little or no formal education right up to career high-flyers.
Our programmes cover hundreds of potential pathways and are designed to improve your career prospects and help you progress to university and beyond.
Our strength comes from our close ties with industry and local employers who contribute to the design of our courses to ensure they stay current and relevant for today’s needs. They also provide valuable work experience opportunities, expert mentoring and guest speakers, all of which will enhance your chances of securing your dream job.
We work with you to make sure you get access to all the help and support you need, whether that’s personal, educational or financial. We believe that Coventry is a great place to live, work and grow and we celebrate the achievements of our learners.

Respect: We will demonstrate respect for each other within our college community and with external stakeholders to build trust, confidence and well-being.
Our city centre campus was completed in 2008 and is made up of two buildings – North and South – which have multiple floors and house various programmes. Learners will generally be based in one of these two buildings depending on what programme they study, although they’re able to make use of the facilities in both buildings.
The campus is located in the heart of Coventry city centre, easily accessible by local bus routes and only a short walk into the main shopping area with plenty of places to eat.
There’s a canteen in the South building where learners can get hot food at brilliant prices, vending machine snacks and even a Starbucks coffee.
We also have a Costa Coffee in the atrium of the North building, where learners can buy hot and cold drinks, snacks and hot food. There’s also plenty of seating space to relax with friends before classes start.
A few floors up is the social centre, which offers activities such as pool and table tennis, along with places to relax and listen to music. In the social centre, you’ll also find some of our Learner Experience team who are there to ensure learners have a positive time at college, as well as plan trips and activities for learners to enjoy.
The campus buildings house fantastic facilities, from outdoor construction areas to media and recording centres, dance studios and IT suites. Salon Fifty is the College’s hair and beauty salon, which is open to the public and where learners gain real-life experience.
The Learning Hub is located in the South building. Here learners can use a computer to complete programme work or borrow books to help with research and assignments.
Learner Services are also based in the South building – if learners ever need any help, guidance, support or have any questions that need answering, this is the place to go.
