Coventry University

We are a forward-looking, modern university with a proud tradition as a provider of high-quality education and a focus on applied research.

Our students benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in all academic disciplines including health, design and engineering laboratories, performing arts studios and computing centres. We have been chosen to host three national Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning which has enabled us to invest substantial sums of money in health, design and mathematics.

Through our links with leading-edge businesses and organisations in the public and voluntary sectors, our students are able to access project and placement opportunities that enhance their employability on graduation.

We are growing each year as an institution, and our city-centre campus is continually evolving to give our students the best opportunities and experiences whilst studying in Coventry.

Our position as a global University is established by our ranking in national and worldwide league tables and feedback from our students about their experience.

  • Coventry University has reclaimed its title of Top New University in the Complete University Guide 2018 league tables.
  • Coventry University is ranked 12th in the UK in the  Guardian University Guide 2018
