It now has more than 27,000 students and offers undergraduates a choice of around 190 degree programmes, including subjects in the arts, humanities, business, law, engineering, computing and health sciences. In and around Coventry there are three campuses with the main one in the city centre, and the uni has further sites in Scarborough and London.
