Volume 491: debated on Thursday 30 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what opportunities there are for undergraduate study in Coventry for those in full-time work. (272078)

Several Coventry institutions provide undergraduate courses, including the Universities of Coventry and of Warwick, and colleges such as City College and Henley College Coventry. No data are held centrally on the number of part-time undergraduate courses offered by all of these, but between them the two universities have some 14,035 part-time undergraduate students. Coventry University offer many of their undergraduate courses on a part-time basis, plus some part-time-only ones, and work-based learning programmes designed to enable students to fit study around work, with an additional 750 employer co-funded places for 2009-10 and (through the Economic Challenge Investment Fund) activities such as more short courses offered to help with the current economic climate.
