AbroadStudy: COVENTRY University has risen further up the rankings in one national league
table – placing it in 12th 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.
Earlier this month Coventry University made the Times Higher Education’s (THE) latest league table of the best 200 institutions globally under 50 years old.
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 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.
The UK is the best place in the world for top “young” universities, according to the new rankings.
A total of 27 UK institutions made the cut - more than any other nation, including Australia, which had 23 universities included, and France which took third place with 16 inclusions.
In May 2016 Coventry University was declared the best modern university in the UK.
Developers Crosslane Group said its interest in the city was due to the fact Coventry University is currently the fastest growing university in the UK by student enrolment.
