Commenting on Coventry’s latest award, Alastair McCall, editor of the guide, said:
Coventry is no stranger to a place on the podium in our annual University of the Year awards. It has become one of the most innovative of modern universities, bold with its brand and its vision of what the 21st century student experience should be.
Students are responding: applications are up and once they get here, they give a ringing endorsement year in year out of the university’s outstanding efforts on their behalf.
Matthew Underhill, a business management student at Coventry University, said:
Coventry University has so many opportunities to help you to become who you want to be. The staff on my course are great, they teach well and many have degrees in multiple subjects. If you engage in the course and with the tutors, the enthusiasm and knowledge they have can really improve your experience.
To walk out with a piece of paper that means something is a worthy investment of your time and money, and creates the best launching platform for you socially, financially and in terms of future employment.
Vice-chancellor John Latham said:
This is wonderful news and is especially welcome just as thousands of students are set to arrive at our campuses in Coventry, London and Scarborough this weekend to begin or resume their educational journey with us.
Moreover, it’s further vindication of the focus we place on ensuring an excellent experience for our students – be that through top quality teaching, excellent facilities or the availability of employment and international placement opportunities – which is at the heart of everything we do.
