Select your mode
Work and family commitments often mean that not everyone can commit to a traditional full-time degree. We offer two study modes to help make our degrees accessible to as many people as possible.
If you choose to study full-time you can expect up to 20 hours of learning activities per week. The majority of this will be face-to-face teaching, with the addition of individual and group tutorials and independent/online learning. Classes usually run Monday to Friday at a fixed time each day, either in the morning (9am-1pm) or afternoon (1.30pm-5.30pm).
If you choose to study part-time you’ll usually receive seven hours per week direct face-to-face delivery and three hours per week blended learning. Outside of this, there will also be independent study and online support. Teaching normally takes place on Saturday 9am-6pm, or if the demand is high enough, selected courses may be able to run on weekday evenings.
Select your style
We understand a September start doesn’t suit everyone, which is why we offer course intakes throughout the year, along with block structure teaching so you will only study one module at a time.
Our courses run in six-week blocks, and you will study one module in each block, worth 30 credits. When each module is completed and the coursework produced is formally assessed, you will begin the next block and the next module. Full-time students normally study four blocks per year. Each block will require you to successfully complete 300 hours of study commitment, with 120 of those hours completed at your campus location participating in learning activities.
Select your level
We aim to make higher education accessible, even if you don’t have the qualifications needed to go straight onto a degree course. At CU London you can start your studies at different entry points depending on your qualifications and experience.
The undergraduate Honours degree is a widely recognised Level 6 qualification offered by the UK university system. We offer a range of BA, BEng, BSc and LLB degrees at CU London. It typically takes three years of full-time study to achieve a degree and become a graduate.
Foundation year qualifications provide an entry route into degree-level study for students who, although normally having completed some study at Level 3, or having gained equivalent professional experience, don’t yet have the necessary entry requirements for a degree (or HNC). If you successfully pass your foundation year and meet all relevant entry criteria, you will be able to progress to the first year of a degree programme at CU London, enabling a degree to be typically achieved after four years of full-time study.
If you already hold a Level 5 qualification (such as a HND or Foundation Degree) at another institution that maps closely to one of our courses, you may be able to join CU London and study for a further year to ‘top-up’ your qualification and upon successful completion gain a full Honours degree.
