Forward-looking, pioneering and ambitious, Coventry University has been ranked Modern University of the Year an unprecedented three times in a row in 2014, 2015 and 2016 by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide. Our performance was judged better than the rest when assessed against criteria including: student satisfaction, teaching excellence, peer assessment, research quality, level of qualifications on entry, destinations of leavers and completion rates.
We are recognised as one of the UK’s leading universities, ranked 15th UK University in the Guardian University Guide 2017, the highest ranking ever achieved by a new university or former Polytechnic, one established since 1992.
The UK’s benchmark for research, the Research Excellence Framework 2014, awarded 61% of our research the highest classifications possible – 4* and 3* – deeming our research to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
As University of the Year for Student Experience (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016), student satisfaction is a top priority. In 2015, we became one of a handful of universities to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, in recognition of our support to and growth in international students.
