Coventry University ranked twelth in UK in Guardian guide for 2018

Correspondent 16th May, 2017

COVENTRY University has risen further up the rankings in one national league table – placing it in twelth spot.

The university says its latest performance in The Guardian University Guide 2018 ‘cements its status as the country’s top modern university’.

It is its highest ever placing, up from 15th.

The Guardian’s guide is partly based on student feedback. Coventry University is ranked top in England for its teaching quality score, and is third in the UK for the percentage of final-year students satisfied with feedback and assessment by lecturers.

The ranking puts Coventry ahead of many Russell Group universities.

Last month’s Complete University Guide also ranked Coventry as the top new university.

The university also ranks as number one in the UK for courses in film production and photography, and is in the country’s top two for its courses in the mechanical engineering and hospitality, event management and tourism categories.

Coventry is also in the UK’s top 10 for courses in economics (5th), sports science (8th), mathematics (8th), journalism (9th) and civil engineering (10th) – with a further ten subject area rankings featuring Coventry in the top 20 overall.

Vice-chancellor professor John Latham said: “This is wonderful news for our staff, for our students and for the wider Coventry community. We’re proud to be recognised in this way and to be doing our bit to showcase the great strengths and qualities of this city.

“We’ve enjoyed a great deal of success in recent years thanks to the dedication of our staff who help students from all over the world achieve their potential.

“It’s this commitment that really defines what kind of university we are, more than any league table position can do.”
