    Coventry University is a relatively modern institution, gaining its uni status back in 1992. Located in the heart of the city centre, there are a range of subjects and qualifications to choose from in art and design, business and law, engineering and computing, and the life sciences.

    As well as the main grounds in Coventry’s city centre, there’s a small campus based in London which opened in 2010 and caters to international students and students on business-related courses.

    Perhaps the most distinctive landmark on Coventry’s campus is the Lanchester Library, which was built in 2000 and has a unique turreted exterior and specially designed interior which makes the most of the natural light within the building. You won’t find yourself squinting over a book in a dusty old corner here!
