Guardian University League Table 2015

The Guardian University Guide 2015 ranks Coventry University 27th UK University based on its own formula. The Institutional Table ranks institutions according to their performance in the subject tables; but considers two other factors when calculating overall performance:

  1. the number of students in a department influences the extent to which that department’s Total S-score contributes to the institutions overall score;
  2. the number of institutions included in the subject table determines the extent to which a department can affect the institutional table.

The NSS is a national initiative, conducted annually since 2005. The survey runs across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and participating HEIs in Scotland.

There are 22 core questions, relating to the following aspects of the student learning experience:

  • teaching on my course;
  • assessment and feedback;
  • academic support;
  • organisation and management;
  • learning resources;
  • personal development;
