COVENTRY UNIVERSITY has been cemented as the top modern university in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2017.

Building on the success which saw it crowned ‘University of the Year’ at the end of 2015, the new ranking sees Coventry retain its position as the top-placed post-92 institution.

In the newly published guide, Coventry University is ranked top in the UK for the percentage of final-year students satisfied with feedback and assessment by lecturers – and is in the country’s top ten for both quality of teaching and value added.

The University also ranks second in the country for its courses in the hospitality, event management and tourism category, and is in the top ten for courses in economics, film production, photography, geography, environmental studies and nursing and midwifery.

Vice-chancellor professor John Latham said: “We’re delighted to be able to maintain the positive performance of recent years in the Guardian rankings.

“However we’re mindful that league tables do not always represent a complete picture of the hard work that our teaching and professional staff are putting in and the value that they’re adding to our students’ experiences.

“While we can be proud of how our increasingly distinguished position in UK higher education is being reflected in the rankings, it is nevertheless our achievements beyond our position in a league table which are defining Coventry as a university.”
