The main campus of Coventry University is based in the city of Coventry and the London campus is just an hour away by train. Coventry was voted the 3rd happiest university city in the UK by Sodexo in 2017 and many graduates choose to stay on for postgraduate qualifications. Coventry offers students the benefits of both a great city experience and a campus with a thriving community.
TheHub is the heart of student life on campus and a natural place to meet like-minded people and potentially life-long friends. Student experience is a priority for the university, which is proud to be ranked as the number one university in the UK for student experience.
With students enrolled from a multitude of countries making up a significant portion of the student population, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people from all over the world while studying one of the 250 courses available.
The campus is undergoing constant redevelopment. There is particular investment in specialist facilities such as the state-of-the-art, multi-million-pound Alison Gingell building offering Health and Life Sciences students the opportunity to experience real-world healthcare scenarios with a fully-equipped ambulance, operating theatre and sports therapy clinic. New social spaces on campus are being developed at the centre of student life, TheHub and the university has been investing £89m in accommodation between 2016 and 2019, including Bishopgate, Godiva Place and The Cycle Works, which are all located within easy walking distance of the main campus.
All of the faculties place a strong emphasis on graduate outcomes, with employability units working to ensure students receive industry experience, mentoring and support to help them into a graduate-level role.
For students who are looking to develop a deeper understanding of their subject area in a very practical way, there are a number of courses at Coventry University and Coventry University London that offer an extended 18 month professional experience option. This extended option includes an internship and will give students a very hands on opportunity to apply theory to practice.
