Founded by entrepreneurs and industrialists as the Coventry College of Design in 1843, Coventry University has a tradition of teaching excellence, research with impact, bold international initiatives and transformational partnerships with business.
Coventry University’s momentum and impact has grown dramatically in recent years. From the home in the heart of England, they were the first provincial university to open a London campus and the first to offer “life-shaped learning” to students wanting something different from the typical full-day, three-year, higher education experience.
Coventry University partnered with industry to create the UK’s first “faculty on the factory floor” and has continually broken the mould through innovative joint-initiatives overseas. The university has climbed the university league tables and are committed to being world-leading in all that they do.
In 2015 Coventry University was awarded UK “University of the Year” (Times Higher) and were named “Modern University of the Year” three-years’ running (The Times and Sunday Times).The university was awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2015. Coventry is one of the top four UK universities for student satisfaction and teaching (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).
Coventry University offers academic and professional learning across a range of disciplines including health, design, social science, engineering, performing arts, media, business and computing. Their Research Centres influence decision-making across the world and push forward near-market innovation in industry.
The University’s Group also includes companies and social enterprises. Working across the University, they provide a platform for new ideas, further engagement with the communities that Coventry University work with, and professional services and consultancy.
