5 Reasons to Choose Coventry University

More than a qualification...

If you're applying for university this usually means you want a degree to get on the career path that suits you.

And while this is an important mindset to have, there is plenty more that matters when deciding on the right university. University life offers much more than simply making notes in a lecture and passing assignments, it's a whole new adventure!

We're proud to have a huge number of reasons to choose Coventry. However, to make life easy, we've narrowed it down to our favourite 5 that define life at Coventry...


Your global opportunities

At Coventry, we encourage you to take advantage of the international opportunities* we offer. You could learn a new language, visit large multinational organisations to learn how they operate, and gain exclusive access to internationally renowned speakers**. We’ve already helped thousands of students to gain a competitive edge in the employment market with global skills and experiences. Wouldn’t you like to join them?

Your campus, your city

Coventry has been named UK City of Culture 2021. This means that you could be at the University when we have our official year of culture and celebrations. Our city-centre single-site campus is located at the heart of Coventry, so everything you need is within a few minutes’ walk. And with most first-year student accommodation either on or very close to campus, you will never be far from where you want to go.
