About Coventry University

Coventry University is a dynamic, global and transformative higher education provider with a proud tradition of innovative teaching and learning.

Our two main campuses are in Coventry and London, or you can study 100% online.

Whether you need the flexibility and support to study at a time and place that suits you, or you wish to utilise our fantastic range of facilities, we can offer you a wide range of postgraduate courses, both online and on-campus.

The campus is in the middle of the city centre, so everything you need is right here; you don’t need to go that far. London is about an hour away, and Birmingham is 20-30 mins away, so you can’t really be in a much better location in the UK.

On most courses, we have intakes in September, January and May. With more than 140 taught courses across Coventry University and Coventry University London, as well as our 100% online courses and two types of postgraduate research degrees (Masters by Research and PhD), you’ll find something to inspire you.

I like how the teaching is practical as well as theoretical. We work on real case studies which have helped prepare me for my future career.

Natali Alsunna, International Business Management MSc Quoted May 2019


A vibrant student community is at the heart of an outstanding student experience at Coventry University. Support services include health and wellbeing, academic and academic writing support, mathematics and statistics support and our online platform Vygo, which provides all our postgraduate students with access to online peer and mentoring support.

I love the library the most. I spend the majority of my time there. And it’s an award-winning library. I love the architecture; it’s just beautiful, inside and out.

There are many ways you can further your employability prospects and highlight your status in a crowded graduate job market. Employability is embedded throughout our courses, alongside:

  • Real-world teaching
  • Lecturers from industry
  • Professional experience opportunities
  • Simulated environments, and
  • A Professional Development module* accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

*There are four Professional Development modules to choose from, each with the aim of developing your practical skills and attributes to a level increasingly demanded by employers across all business sectors. Successful completion of one of these mandatory modules could lead to a CMI professional qualification. You can use this later as an opportunity to work towards Chartered Manager status (highest award) via the qualified route once you meet other entry criteria.

Our Talent Team also offers you a new type of professional careers support. Not only do we aim to guide you towards a successful graduate life, but we also intend to serve your individual needs and aspirations by providing the right kind of careers advice, from enrolment to graduation, and beyond.


Our students can benefit from access to industry-standard equipment and facilities in all academic disciplines, including hospital wards, design and engineering laboratories, performing arts studios and computing centres.

I feel at home in Coventry – it’s a great city. Everything is very convenient for me, but it’s also not too crowded either, which is the lifestyle I was looking for.
