We are a forward-looking, modern university with a proud tradition as a provider of high quality education and a focus on applied research.
Our city-centre campus is continually developing and evolving, and we have plans for further investment in it over the next few years. We are a major presence in Coventry, which contributes to the city's friendly and vibrant atmosphere and also enables us to foster successful business partnerships.
Our students benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in all academic disciplines including health, design and engineering laboratories, performing arts studios and computing centres. We have been chosen to host three national Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning which has enabled us to invest substantial sums of money in health, design and mathematics.
Living in university accommodation is a fantastic way to start your student life and make new friends quickly.

Coventry is renowned for its historic buildings, but also offers a variety of cafes and eateries, alongside a host of shops. With a theatre, cinema, clubs and art centres all based in the city centre, there is a good choice of entertainment and culture whatever your taste. As a student of Coventry University, you are never far away from activities to enhance your stay, whatever form of accommodation you choose.
We know that moving to a new country can be daunting and that is why we have a dedicated International Student Support Team to help you with any questions you might have both before and during your studies. Our Student Advisers offer support on a range of subjects such as pre-arrival, visas and immigration, accommodation and post-study advice. They also have lots of helpful information to help you adjust to life in the UK including money management tips, opening a bank account and travel. No matter what your query is, our aim is to help make your first few weeks in the UK a fun and exciting time and help you settle in to our diverse student community.
Preparing you for a successful career is central to the design of our courses and the other support we provide. We know that securing a graduate-level position is the return you want from your investment and we are dedicated to supporting you to achieve this aim. Our commitment to employability sets us apart from other universities with recent results showing that 95% of our graduates are employed or in further study.
