Coventry for students\r\n\r\nLocated in the West Midlands of England, Coventry is home to Coventry University (ranked among the world’s top 700), and the University of Warwick (ranked in the world’s top 65) – the latter is located just south of the city on a 700-acre campus.\r\n\r\nTheir combined student population gives Coventry the highest score for the student mix indicator (first out of 100 cities).\r\n\r\nCoventry 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 centre dedicated to supporting innovative collaborations between academia and industry (Warwick Manufacturing Group), which offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.\r\n\r\nWarwick University’s Arts Centre, which houses various performance spaces, galleries and a cinema, is one of the largest arts centres in the UK. Coventry has several other theatres 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. \r\n\r\nWhen 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.”\r\n\r\nBest universities in Coventry - QS Best Student Cities ranking: =40th\r\n\r\n\r\n\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\tWorld Ranking\r\n\t\t\tUniversity\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t64\r\n\t\t\tUniversity of Warwick\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t651-700\r\n\t\t\tCoventry University\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\r\n\r\n\r\nMore about Coventry\r\n\r\nCoventry scored well across the ranking indicators, despite slipping seven places for employer activity.
