Coventry University

Key Information






Coventry University has a proud tradition of excellence as a sector-leading institution. We are well-established as a truly global university, with partner institutions and representatives positioned around the world. Coventry is in the top 30 universities in the world for international students in the QS University Rankings 2021.

With our 5 QS Star rating for Facilities in the University Ratings, you can unlock your potential by using cutting-edge industry equipment and simulation suites to build your talent. We’re always looking to develop our campus to ensure our facilities are modern and fit for the purpose of nurturing tomorrow’s talent. Our £59m Health and Life Sciences building was opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2018, and following this, there are two brand-new refurbishments of the Engineering and Arts and Humanities buildings, costing over £60m- and you could be one of the first students to use the new buildings!

On top of our Coventry campus, we also offer you the chance to study in the City of London. Coventry University London offers a range of business, finance, fashion, hospitality and marketing courses, ranging from top-up BA level to MBA. As well as studying for a degree, all of the London based courses include a credit-bearing internship or placement so students have the opportunity to graduate as a student and industry professional.

Coventry University Online is first in the world for Massive Online Open Courses (MoocLab’s World University Rankings by MOOC Performance 2021), where we offer a fully online learning experience or a blend of online and on-campus teaching. Our course flexibility and immersive teaching is why we are the only UK university rated 5 stars for Online Learning by QS Stars University Ratings.
