Coventry University is a dynamic and outward-looking institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, impactful research and bold international partnerships.
Through Coventry’s worldwide network of collaborators in academia and industry, the 50,000 learners studying its degrees in different countries enjoy access to global opportunities which ensure their employment prospects are enhanced. The university is recognised internationally for its expertise in health, peacebuilding and agroecology, and for the world-leading calibre of its engineering and design graduates – particularly in the automotive field.
Coventry University is already known for delivering research that makes a significant contribution to a number of global challenges, but it has bigger ambitions – including growing its research staff to 2,000 by 2021 and focusing on fields where its experts can be dominant. The latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) rated significant areas of Coventry’s research as ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’, with its allied health professions work being ranked joint 5th in the UK and almost three-quarters of its work in the art and design category being rated as either four or three-star quality.
