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 countries and industries, Coventry University’s 24,000+ students enjoy access to placements and international opportunities which ensure that their employment prospects are enhanced by the time they graduate. Its students also benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities – on both its Coventry and London campuses – in all academic disciplines, from health, business and performing arts to industrial design, engineering and computing.
Its forward-thinking attitude towards widening participation, modern facilities and practical approach to learning resonate well with today’s students and have resulted in Coventry being named ‘University of the Year’ in the THE Awards 2015. As of 2015 the institution is the country’s top modern university in the Guardian University Guide – in which it ranks 15th overall – the Complete University Guide, and the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, which for the past three years has named Coventry the ‘Modern University of the Year’.
