Coventry University has an established tradition of accepting a wide variety of qualifications studied by students in schools. However, the University reserves the right to specify which qualifications can be used to assist applicants in meeting a conditional offer made by the University.


Some courses have interviews as a mandatory part of the selection process. Other courses may offer a voluntary interview to help you and the course team confirm the course is a good fit between your motivation and abilities and the demands of the course. However, if the interview is successful you may not require as many UCAS points as a standard offer would require.


A-Level applicants are required to have three A2 Levels. Coventry University may include AS grades within an offer but we are not able to accept two AS Levels in place of one A2 Level. In some courses it may be necessary for entrants to have passed specific A2 Levels in nominated subjects. Please see the course pages for more information.
