We have lots of things to brag about, like being the UK’s 13th best University (The Guardian University Guide 2019) and having a gold award for Teaching Excellence (TEF 2017). 

But what you might not know is that by joining Coventry University, you'll  have the chance to study in five different locations! Each one with their own unique offer!

About our locations


Coventry University

With 29,000 students to our name from over 50 countries, Coventry University is a diverse campus in a multicultural and welcoming city.

We are committed to ensuring our students leave university with the experience needed to become highly employable graduates, and aim to set them up for the best futures we possibly can.

We are still ranked 1st for the total number of students studying, working or travelling abroad – did you know 1 in 4 students in the UK travel abroad with us? We are passionate about international travel opportunities, and we offer you the support and funding in getting you there too.



I chose Coventry because of how close everything was in terms of the town centre/local amenities to the university itself.

Also, the staff on my course are extremely helpful and very motivated. They're always there for you, whether you need advice from them or are looking for work opportunities. They are inspirational!

I knew I wanted to study either in London or at home in Belfast. With my research completed, I began phoning universities and when I spoke with Coventry University London and looked at the course, I knew it was for me.
