Coventry University’s improvements in performance and reputation in recent years have been reflected in the 2012 Guardian League Table, which was released this morning (17 May).

Coventry has jumped 24 places to 63rd out of 119 universities and is now in the top 10 of the post-1992 universities in England.  Coventry does particularly well on the Guardian’s added value measure, where the University is in the top ten across the UK.  This compares students’ individual degree results with their entry qualifications to measure the effectiveness of teaching in helping students to exceed their expectations.  In addition the University has also significantly improved its student/staff ratio to 15.7, ahead of most of its competitors.

Commenting on the results, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Madeleine Atkins, said:

The University is pleased to see that the improvements we have made over the past few years are now beginning to show in the League tables.  In particular they demonstrate our focus on providing a quality academic experience for our students so that they achieve good grades and are successful in finding employment
