In figures released today, Coventry University has risen at least 30 places in the QS World University Ranking to give the university its highest ever rating in the table.

QS World University Ranking 2020 rates universities based on measures such as academic reputation – including teaching and research quality – their global outlook, and how highly regarded the institution’s graduates are among employers.

Coventry University is now in the top 50% of the table, ranked in the top 40 globally for International Students and in the top 200 globally for Employer Reputation based on around 45,000 responses to an annual survey.

For the third year in a row the university has climbed up the QS World University Ranking table, based on our strong performance in teaching, employability and internationalisation. I am delighted that the continued dedication of our staff to foster a global outlook has received another boost in this highly regarded league table.

Vice-Chancellor John Latham

The QS World University Ranking table evaluates 1,620 institutions across 82 locations.
