Coventry University is a global, modern university with a mission of 'Creating Better Futures'. It was founded by entrepreneurs and industrialists in 1843 as the Coventry School of Design, and continues to have strong links with the public and private sector, providing job-ready graduates with the skills and creative thinking to improve their communities.
With a proud tradition of innovative teaching and learning, Coventry University has world-class campus facilities, the UK’s first standalone 5G network and a digital community of learning. Its students are part of a global network that has 50,000 learners studying Coventry University degrees in more than 40 different countries and partnerships with 150 higher education providers worldwide.
Coventry University has greatly increased its research capacity and capability with a focus on impactful research, delivered for and with partners to address real-world challenges and support business and communities to grow. The depth and breadth of rapidly growing research portfolio was validated by the latest UK research assessment, which saw Coventry University jump 22 places in the research power rankings.
Over two centuries, Coventry University has flourished in Coventry, and the Coventry University Group now also delivers access to its range of high-quality services and partnerships through bases in London, Scarborough, Belgium, Poland, Egypt, Dubai, Singapore and Africa. It will be teaching students at a new campus in China with the Communication University of China in the near future.
In April 2022, Coventry University was honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade, the UK’s most prestigious business award. In recent years, Coventry University has won many awards and vastly improved its rankings in the league tables that matter to students – but what matters to Coventry University is delivering transformational change for its students, partners and communities around the world as it continues to evolve into a global education group.
In November 2022, Coventry University and SUSS signed a MOU for potential collaborations in the areas of staff and student exchange, joint research, and other joint initiatives.
