Coventry riding high


Coventry University has been named as one of the country’s top 30 universities by the Guardian, the Coventry Telegraph reports.

While retaining its ranking as the country’s top modern university, Coventry has risen six places from last year and now sits proudly in 27th position, ahead of several traditional ‘redbrick’ universities.

The overall table sees Coventry placed higher than a third of Russell Group institutions, with the university ranked the best in the UK for the percentage of final-year students satisfied with feedback and assessment by lecturers.

The university is also placed top in the Midlands for the percentage of students satisfied with teaching quality.

Vice-Chancellor John Latham said: “It will be challenging to keep up this impressive momentum as we are now mixing it with the highly respected Russell Group institutions, but I’ve every confidence the hard work and fantastic efforts of all our staff in pushing the University forward like this will continue in the years to come.”
