Coventry University is the top-placed modern university in the latest edition of a national league table based on the combined results of the UK’s three main domestic university rankings.

Coventry is ranked 24th in the new Times Higher Education “Table of Tables.”

Published yearly since 2008, the Times Higher’s listings are calculated by giving institutions points corresponding to their

positions in The Times and Sunday Good University Guide, the Guardian University Guide and the Complete University Guide.

The higher the position the higher the points allocated and the total scores then determine where universities finish in the “Table of Tables.”

Coventry's 24th placed finish put it ahead of both Nottingham Trent and Lincoln, the only other modern universities to have made it onto the Times Higher's top 30 list. 

This is the second year running that Coventry is the highest placed post-92 institution in the Times Higher table, and comes just after it was awarded the title of “University of the Year for Student Experience” and finished in the top 50 in the 2019 edition of The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide.

Elsewhere, Coventry is ranked 13th in the Guardian University Guide 2019 and 47th in the Complete University Guide 2019, where it was also ranked in the top 10 across three subject areas and in the top 20 across a further seven.
