Coventry University is one of the top universities for working with business and is proud to be seen as a ‘business facing’ university

Coventry University is rated the ‘Modern University of the Year’ by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014. The University has leapfrogged into 45th place in the overall rankings – up ten places from its position in the current guide and the highest listing ever for a modern university in the history of these guides – to seal its place as the country’s top modern university. Coventry, which was named ‘Entrepreneurial University of the Year’ in 2011 by The Times, also made the final shortlist for the title of ‘University of the Year’ in the 2014 guide.

The Times and Sunday Times guide identifies high student satisfaction levels in recent years as a significant factor in the University’s rise, alongside its innovative approach to delivering affordable, alternative routes into higher education through its subsidiary, Coventry University College and the success of Coventry’s London Campus.

Consistently high employment rates in graduate level jobs combined with strong ratings in teaching quality, academic support, and personal development also contribute to the upward movement in the rankings in 2014.
