QS Best Student Cities ranking: 47th

Located in the West Midlands of England, Coventry is home to Coventry University (ranked among the world’s top 600), and the University of Warwick (ranked in the world’s top 65) – the latter is located just to the south of the city on a 700-acre campus.

Their combined student population is around 8.1 percent of the total population of Coventry, with international students making up around 42 percent of enrolments, giving it a high score for the student mix indicator (third out of 100 cities).

Coventry also gets a strong rating from graduate employers, thanks to the strong reputation of its universities as well as the city’s long history of leadership in manufacturing and design. This legacy is reflected in the fact that Coventry University is one of only a few institutions to offer a course dedicated to automotive design, while the University of Warwick has a center dedicated to supporting innovative collaborations between academia and industry (Warwick Manufacturing Group), which runs a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs.

Warwick University’s Arts Centre, which houses various performance spaces, galleries and a cinema, is one of the largest arts centers in the UK. Coventry has several other theaters and art galleries, and there are a number of large venues in and around the city which are used for both music concerts and major sports events. These probably helped the city in its success in being awarded the title of UK City of Culture 2021. 

When asked to name the best thing about studying in Coventry, one respondent to our student survey described it as “a very friendly and multicultural city” and that the city “feels safe with low crime rates and great affordability.”
