Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust

Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust (BFMAT) is the first University sponsored MAT focussed on Sixth Form Education and Sixth Form Colleges (SFCs) in particular. Over 70% of all SFC students progress to university each year and when there outperform cohorts from the school or the General Further Education Sector. The objective of the Trust is to build on this and strengthen provision to all colleges within the Trust to improve student outcomes and enable them to contribute to each local community.

The University was awarded a Gold rating in the UK government’s 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and is ranked 15th in the Guardian University Guide 2020. Coventry was also awarded the title ‘Modern University of the Year’ in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide for three consecutive years running from 2014 to 2016, and placed in the top 200 in the Young University Rankings 2017.

The University Group has significantly expanded over recent years, developing CU Coventry, CU Scarborough and CU London which offeris students a new flexible way to study.
