Coventry University

United Kingdom
Overview

Overview

The main campus of Coventry University is based in the centre of England, in the city of Coventry with Coventry University London just an hour away by train. As a top five UK student city (QS Best Student Cities Index 2019) 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 was proud to be ranked as the University of the Year in the UK for student experience (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019).

With 11,000 international students enrolled from over 130 countries worldwide 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 over 250 undergraduate and postgraduate courses available.

The Coventry 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 have been developed at the centre of student life, called TheHub. The university invested GBP 89 million 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.

International Pathway programmes

Coventry University has launched International Pathway programmes for students who do not meet the direct entry requirements for degree courses:

  • International Foundation Year
  • International Year One
  • and Master's Qualifying programme

Students will have the opportunity to progress to their chosen degree by studying one of the academic pathways on offer. More information here.

Coventry University uses a truly integrated online learning platform

Since September 2020, more than 40,000 students from courses across Coventry University campuses are using Aula, a mobile-first, interactive and engaging teaching and learning environment. Aula has strengthened the way the university has delivered teaching, with conversation and engagement at the heart of the blended learning experience.

Hear from some of Coventry University's students who are already benefitting from Aula:

''Aula has helped greatly as it considers all aspects of the learning experience. The ability to easily watch recordings, notes and videos of lectures, chat with teammates and report progress all in one application has made it very easy. The mobile phone integration is very well done the look and feel are exactly the same and even more friendly than the desktop version. Everything you need is a simple tap away. I like it.''

Louis Oghenemaro Sota, MSc Engineering Project Management

''When I first logged on, I noticed immediately that Aula is socially orientated, and you can easily navigate through the modules. It is always good to acquire new skills, and thanks to remote learning, I've improved my communication, time management and leadership skills. Due to social distancing (and working remotely), when I am using Aula, I'm only one click away from interacting with my colleagues.''

Teaching quality

Teaching quality

Coventry University has an excellent teaching reputation. In 2019, the university was also awarded a five-star overall rating for the first time in the QS Stars awards system, confirming the breadth of excellence across teaching, research and other key indicators. The online learning offered also enjoys a global reputation, being the only UK university rated 5 stars in the QS Stars Online Learning Assessment 2020 and is ranked 4th worldwide in the MOOC World Top 100 Universities 2020.

Teaching excellence is combined with practical experience to prepare students for professional careers. Students work with world-renowned researchers and the university is known for research which tackles global issues. The focus of its research areas falls under five categories:

  • Intelligent products and processes, including work in hydrogen fuel cell cars and autonomous cars.
  • Health and wellbeing, including children's literacy and mental health.
  • Creative cultures, including transport design and digital environments.
  • Sustainability and resilience, including bee populations and rail infrastructure.
  • Safety and security, including cybersecurity and migration.

Alongside the opportunity to research and study these innovative specialisations with expert researchers, students are also given the opportunity to gain practical experience.

From a moot room at the Coventry Law School to operating rooms, a midwifery suite and therapeutic treatment rooms at the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, students gain practical experience which will help them to achieve their career goals after leaving university.

The university also houses the Disruptive Media Learning Lab, a project which brings together academics, researchers and technologists to find the best ways of learning, and then put them into practice across the university.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements

Entry requirements vary according to the region an applicant is applying from, and what course they are applying for. The accepted entry requirements and their levels can be found, according to country of application.

For most undergraduate courses, students will need an IELTS score of 6.0 or an equivalent English qualification, and they will be asked to provide evidence of their English language test on application.

For students who wish to top up their English language skills, Coventry University offers pre-sessional English courses so that students can gain the required level of language skills to move on to their undergraduate or postgraduate courses. It can help to better prepare students for the demands of academic study and is also an excellent opportunity to meet other international students who are looking to study at Coventry University. For a full list of the pre-sessional English courses and their costs, please visit the website.
