Study in a Top 5 UK Student City

Coventry University is an innovative, modern university with excellent graduate employability. We're also number one provider of international experiences amongst UK universities.

But more than that, our city is a vibrant and exciting place to be thanks our large student population. We're also pleased to be one of the most affordable student cities in the UK - even more so when you consider the current exchange rates!

To help you get to know our city a little bit better, we've put together a brief overview of what Coventry is all about, and what we've got that has made us one of the top 5 student cities in the UK and top 40 in the world!

11th

Largest city in the UK


Coventry City Council, 2016


Coventry's large student population gives the city a buzz that you would struggle to find in other larger cities, and also means that the city is a safe and friendly place to live.

There are a large number of restaurants and bars to cater for the many students, so if you're looking for good food at a decent price or a place to enjoy a few drinks you won't be disappointed! 

If you want to go shopping then you'll find many major high-street shops at West Orchards and the Lower Precinct Shopping Centre (with many offering student discounts!). Or alternatively, take a walk through Coventry Market, which is one the largest and most successful in the country!

If high-street and mainstream isn't you thing, then Fargo Village is home to plenty of independent shops and tasty street food outlets. In this ever-changing creative village, some of the places you might come across include a bubble tea house, vintage clothing, record shop, American diner, Caribbean restaurant and more!

As you may have heard, we're also going to be the 2021 City of Culture - something that we feel encapsulates what our city is all about!

International and UK Opportunities


As the number one provider of international experiences amongst UK universities, we give you the chance to experience different cultures and teaching methods from all over the world. From spending months studying abroad at one of our partner universities, to going on a exploratory field trip for a week or two, there is bound to be something for you.

Of course, going on an international experience isn't right for everybody, which is why we also offer an extensive range of UK-based learning and work opportunities. Learn a new language, discover new cultures (or teach others about your own), and gain valuable paid work experience - the choice is yours.

International Virtual Open Day


Take a closer look at our university!

We know that it's hard for international students to get to the UK for an open day. That's why we've created a Virtual Open Day area where you can find all of the information that you'd be able to find at an actual Coventry University open day, including a tour around campus!
