Coventry University has a proud tradition of excellence as a sector-leading institution. We are well-established as a truly global university, with partner institutions and representatives positioned around the world. Coventry is in the top 30 universities in the world for international students in the QS University Rankings 2021.

With our 5 QS Star rating for Facilities in the University Ratings, you can unlock your potential by using cutting-edge industry equipment and simulation suites to build your talent. We’re always looking to develop our campus to ensure our facilities are modern and fit for the purpose of nurturing tomorrow’s talent. Our £59m Health and Life Sciences building was opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2018, and following this, there are two brand-new refurbishments of the Engineering and Arts and Humanities buildings, costing over £60m- and you could be one of the first students to use the new buildings!

On top of our Coventry campus, we also offer you the chance to study in the City of London. Coventry University London offers a range of business, finance, fashion, hospitality and marketing courses, ranging from top-up BA level to MBA. As well as studying for a degree, all of the London based courses include a credit-bearing internship or placement so students have the opportunity to graduate as a student and industry professional.

Coventry University Online is first in the world for Massive Online Open Courses (MoocLab’s World University Rankings by MOOC Performance 2021), where we offer a fully online learning experience or a blend of online and on-campus teaching. Our course flexibility and immersive teaching is why we are the only UK university rated 5 stars for Online Learning by QS Stars University Ratings.

Services for International Students

Many of our International Student Support Team have studied abroad themselves and are also multi-lingual, so you can receive simple and prompt responses to your questions. With over 13,000 international students from 160 countries in Coventry, our network of dedicated experts and advisors know how to support you with everything to do with being an international student.

Our team offers a pick-up service if you are arriving from a nearby airport along with hosting a range of orientation events so that you, and other new students, can discover Coventry and beyond together.

Coventry is a bustling student city and is in the top 100 most affordable student cities to live in world-wide (QS Best Student Cities Index 2019).

At Coventry University London, our student halls, Chapter Spitalfields, is located a minute away from our campus and Liverpool Street station.


Coventry has flourished into a student community with clubs, events and social spaces designed purely with students in mind. After a day of shopping, studying and sightseeing, our city-based campus is ideally located in the heart of Coventry so you can take full advantage of city living.

If you’re considering going to university, you’re probably someone who enjoys an adventure. It is estimated that 75 percent of England is within a two-hour drive from Coventry and the central location means most major transport routes pass through Coventry. Coventry’s mainline station has trains that can take you to London in an hour, to Birmingham in 30 minutes and to Oxford in just under an hour approximately. Closer to home, students love to watch a sports game at the Ricoh Arena, which will host some of the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

At our London campus, our main building is located on one of the most recognisable addresses in the world. Among sweeping skyscrapers, Liverpool Street is where the Bank of England, the London Stock Exchange, and Google Campus are located, right next door to our campus, University House. Our Students’ Union regularly organise events so you can take advantage of living in the best student city in the world (Best Student Cities Index 2019).
