Coventry is an evolving and innovative university with a growing reputation for excellence in education. Independent surveys show that we provide a caring and supportive environment, enriched by a unique blend of academic expertise and practical experience.

Three words set us apart - employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship. Coventry University was 'Highly Commended' in the Entrepreneurial University of the Year category at the Times Higher Awards 2008.

Our aim is to keep on improving. We're investing heavily in developing our state-of-the-art facilities with £160m earmarked for improvements over the next ten years.

And by seeking to enhance the strong vocational emphasis of our courses and bolstering our links with the very best industry organisations, we're firmly focussed on preparing students for successful futures.
