COVENTRY COLLEGE INFORMATION

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Update of contingency plans for applicants

As a result of the decisions by Government and Public Health England (PHE) which we wholly endorse and to which we are adhering; it has become necessary for us to become innovative in our approach to ensuring that all young people who have applied to Coventry College are not disadvantaged in any way in terms of their career/education ambitions.

We have therefore decided that all applicants will be offered a conditional place on the course of their choice, as indicated by their application via our website. These offers will be conditional on them attending an interview with the College when circumstances allow. Also, that they meet the entry criteria for the course to which they applied.

Providing they meet the terms of the conditional offer, they can be assured of a place on the course of choice. If, however, they are not as successful as their predicted grades are concerned, they need not worry as we will be in a position to offer them a place on a course at the appropriate level.
