Coventry University Scarborough Campus


Coventry University have revealed more details about their proposed new £12m campus set to be built in Scarborough.

Due to open in 2016, Coventry University's Scarborough campus will be built on the former Weaponness Park & Ride site, next to Scarborough's new Leisure Village, as part of a £45m education and sports facility.

The new campus will provide a range of courses including law and policing, accounting and finance and science and engineering and is expected to create up to 100 new jobs over the next three years.

The site will also incorporate the new University Technical College Scarborough, which is also planned to be complete by 2016.

The University is acclaimed for its industry-leading initiatives and its new campus in Scarborough will be based on its widely commended model of delivering high quality university education at very affordable prices.

Enrolment to some courses will begin in September 2015, with the full range of programmes designed to help develop modern skills and knowledge available when the campus opens in September 2016. Coventry University Scarborough Campus will be taking applications, both directly and through UCAS, for the first intakes within the next few days.

The courses to be delivered, including law and policing; business; management and leadership; accounting and finance; science and engineering; and health and social care are all very flexible, offering chances to study at a range of levels and designed in ways to suit learners’ lifestyles.

Ian Dunn, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Coventry University said:
"We have been working for some time with Scarborough Borough Council and local and regional businesses to develop what will be the most exciting educational development of this type in the country. Bringing high quality higher education to Scarborough is the start of a journey towards a full university in the town and means continuity of HE provision and then significant growth for learners and skilled local people to fill the surge in new jobs planned in the borough."
Councilor Tom Fox, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council said:
"We’re extremely pleased that the new campus will welcome its very first students from this September. It signals the start of a new standard of excellence in higher education for the borough. Backed by local businesses that are committed to raising the skills levels of the employees of the future, the campus will be a fundamental part of the growth of the area’s economy from now on."
Professor Craig Gaskell, who is known to be a strong advocate for high quality university education in the region, will become the founding Provost of Coventry University Scarborough Campus.
