Friday 20 September 2013


Coventry has been named the Modern University of the Year and was shortlisted for this year’s University of the Year award in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014.

Coventry University leapt up 10 places in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014, placing the University 45th in the overall rankings. This is the highest ranking for a modern university in the history of the guides, sealing the University’s title as the UK’s Modern University of the Year

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

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

The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014 provides students and their parents with an invaluable first reference point on the path to finding a university place.

The league table is drawn up from criteria including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend and university dropout rates.
