Academic Partnership Unit
The Academic Partnership Unit is the University’s interface with the educational institutions that we collaborate with in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Our first priority is to work with our extensive and reputable collaborative network to ensure that all students on Coventry University programmes receive the same high standard of education from the UK’s leading modern University.
To find out more about how to get involved please visit the APU area of the staff portal.
Coventry University is one of the UK’s leading recruiters of international and EU students, with over 6,000 students from over nearly 130 different countries. 25% of the student population is from outside the UK. We are an externally-facing organisation, built on innovation, enterprise and with a firm commitment to internationalisation.
The International Office is based in the purpose-built Student Centre on the University’s single-site campus in Coventry. The International Office team comprises 50 members of staff, with offices in China, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria and Pakistan and is led by the Director, International Development.
Existing staff can find out more information by visiting the International Office webpage.
