COVENTRY’s universities remain among the country’s elite with the University of Warwick finishing eighth and Coventry University thirteenth in the Guardian university guide for 2019.
The ranking extends Warwick’s record of consistently being placed in the UK’s top 10 since the start of the University Guide while Coventry University retained its place as the number one modern university.
The University Guide also names six Warwick departments in the subject rankings top five and a further 14 in the top ten – with History of Art ranked first.
The university’s vice-chancellor, professor Stuart Croft, said: “I’m delighted that our university has once more been named as one of the UK’s top ten by the Guardian’s University Guide.
“This remarkable achievement is welcome recognition of the Warwick community’s dedication to our university – and I thank them for all they contribute to our continued success.”
For Coventry University, it secured its place as the highest ranked modern university in the UK for the seventh year running.
It has also this year been ranked in the top 10 across 12 subject areas – including number one for Film Production and Photography.
Overall, the guide places Coventry in the top 10 in the country for students’ satisfaction with feedback on their courses and the quality of teaching – based on ratings given in last year’s National Student Survey (NSS).
Vice-chancellor, John Latham, said: “Preserving our top modern university status for the seventh year and increasing the number of subjects for which we feature in the top 10 in today’s rankings is something we are all very proud of.
“Along with our many recent achievements, it shows how much our students appreciate the work we’re doing to enhance their learning experience and employability through travel and placement opportunities.
“This commitment to teaching excellence and to giving our students the best possible chance of success is what continues to makes Coventry stand out.”
