Coventry University

Coventry University is a forward-looking modern university whose roots can be traced back to 1843 to the Coventry School of Design.

With a proud tradition as a provider of high quality education and a focus on multidisciplinary research, the University has established a robust academic presence regionally, nationally, and across the world. 

Through its links with leading-edge businesses and organizations in a variety of industries, Coventry University’s 24,000+ students enjoy access to placement opportunities which ensure that their employment prospects are enhanced by the time they graduate. 

In recent years Coventry has seen a dramatic improvement in its positions in every major university league table, and student satisfaction levels have risen significantly to cement the institution’s position as the leading modern university in the country – as recognised by the Guardian University Guide 2015 (in which Coventry ranks 27th overall) and the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, which voted Coventry ‘Modern University of the Year’ 2014.

Coventry University’s city centre campus itself is continually developing and evolving, and a £100 million-plus investment in a new student centre, engineering and computing building and science facility is playing a key role in modernising the entire learning experience.
