Coventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. Founded by entrepreneurs and industrialists as the Coventry School of Design in 1843, and in 2018 celebrating 175 years, Coventry University is a dynamic and outward-looking institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, impactful research and bold international partnerships.
The university is recognised internationally for its expertise in health, peacebuilding and disaster management, and for the world-leading calibre of its engineering and design graduates – particularly in the automotive field. However, not all of the university locations offer the same courses as the main Coventry University offering; Coventry University London offers bespoke programmes in finance, business, fashion and tourism providing first class teaching, facilities and a London city student experience. It now also boasts a dedicated postgraduate centre and financial suite (Cutlers Exchange).
CU London, CU Scarborough and CU Coventry offer more vocationally based courses, with flexible learning options and no end of year exams, with the aim of providing a high quality learning solution, while also allowing students to fit studying around their busy lifestyles.
