Coventry University is a dynamic, global and transformational ‘modern university’ whose roots can be traced back to 1843 to the Coventry School of Design. With a proud tradition as a provider of innovative teaching and learning and a focus on impactful research, the University has established a robust reputation for pushing the boundaries of higher education regionally, nationally and across the world.
The University’s vibrant and diverse population of over 10,000 international students come from over 150 different countries – a characteristic that helped the institution secure the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2015 in recognition of its global growth and success over the past six years. Coventry is also recognised internationally for its expertise in peacebuilding, serious games and disaster management, and for the world-leading calibre of its engineering and design graduates – particularly in the automotive field.
An ongoing £500 million building programme, including investment in a new student centre, engineering and computing building, and science and health facility, makes for a city centre campus that is continually developing and evolving, and its innovative approach to education – through the likes of its Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering – is playing a key role in modernising the entire learning experience.
