Postgraduate Study at Coventry University
Coventry University is going places. We are an ambitious, innovative, progressive and modern university grounded in the real world. We are focused on providing our students with a top class experience during their time with us and helping them to develop the skills that they need to develop great careers and be successful in their chosen field.
We are shooting our way up the league tables, we’re ranked 15th in The Guardian University Guide 2016, and the number one modern university in the UK. We’re ranked number one in the UK for student experience according to The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. We were also recently selected to receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, in recognition of our international growth and success over the past six years. The Queen’s Award is one of the most coveted accolades in UK business and we are one of only a select few higher education institutions in the history of the awards to be honoured.
We have an established academic presence regionally, nationally and internationally. We provide the very best in postgraduate opportunities particularly tailored to modern industrial and commercial requirements.

Major Investment Programme
We’ve embarked on a major investment plan and are continually looking at ways to improve our campus to meet the needs of our growing student population. We’ve recently added a high-tech home for our Faculty of Engineering and Computing and The Hub - a thriving and vibrant home for the Students’ Union and a whole host of services for students.
The next landmark building will be a £60m new home for our Science and Health offering. It will provide state of the art facilities for simulation of hospital, home, rehabilitation, clinical skills training, sport and exercise environments.
