Established as a university in the 1990s, Coventry University has more than 27,000 students and is one of two universities in Coventry.
Four academic faculties make up the university, with each faculty divided into different schools. These are:
There are three campuses, including one in the city centre where the majority of university operations take place. There are also a further two campuses outside of Coventry, in Scarborough and London. The Coventry city centre campus has undergone a £160m regeneration and expansion project.
The university received the title of Top New University in the Complete University Guide 2018. This performance in the league tables is reflected in the positive reviews from our student reviewers: from social life to lecturers, facilities to the city, our students seem to be very happy with Coventry.
“It has surpassed my expectations. Superbly relevant, intellectually rigorous course content; very good facilities on uni; friendly staff, students and city mates; safe neighbourhood; and convenient location of stores. What more could one ask for?”
“It's been great so far. I've met some great people, and the university experience has given me the opportunity to branch out and get out of my comfort zone. I've grown a lot.”
“Very good. I'm a mature student and have enjoyed my time here a lot. I've got involved at many levels, in societies and as course rep. I get along with students and staff alike.”
