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.

For students who can come to the UK, there will be a blend of on-campus learning and online learning to ensure a high-quality student experience, in the safest way possible. The approach at the university is based on four key principles:

All the courses and modules offered by the university will be delivered on the Aula learning experience platform from September. Aula is a social learning platform which means students will learn together through highly interactive and engaging online delivery. Designed to be flexible and easy-to-use, Aula provides a rich and immersive learning experience, all from a phone, tablet or desktop device.

Teaching quality

Coventry University has an excellent teaching reputation. In 2017 the university was awarded the top accolade in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), a government ranking of how well students are taught at UK universities. 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.
