1. Bursting with opportunity
A key reason for Coventry University investing in CU Scarborough was a report released by HEFCE in 2014, naming the Yorkshire coast as a ‘cold spot’ for Higher Education. CU Scarborough fulfils the graduate demand, which provides fantastic opportunities for both the University and our present and future students.
2. Festival town
What connects surfing, science fiction and jazz music? Scarborough has a festival for each of them and even more besides. It would easier actually to list the things that we don’t have a festival for! Our town celebrates a wide variety of cultural activities, making it a great student town for getting involved with the local community!
3. History and heritage
Scarborough boasts a rich and fascinating back-story. Amongst many, some of the more interesting historical nuggets include how the town was the naval base of King Richard III, we are the resting place of Anne Bronte, the town was besieged during the Civil War and more! Scarborough is a place of inspiration and somewhere you can make your mark.
4. Yorkshire's golden coast
You can get involved with an active outdoor lifestyle set against the backdrop of the sea or even one of Scarborough’s two bays. With options ranging from surfing to cycling, boating to golfing, our campus allows you to experience the golden coast.
5. Onwards and upwards!
Become part of the CUS journey as we invest in our students’ future and support Scarborough’s resurgence. You will witness the continuing redevelopment of the town as we build on our £50 million sport and education campus, alongside a £15 million water park and the North Bay development project.
