Our Educational Strategy imbeds a common thread throughout all courses that are studied at Coventry University – the “Coventry Way”.

Each course is checked and monitored by academics in order to regularly develop the subject area to ensure students have imbedded international experience; professional placements and working with innovation and digital fluency throughout the degree.

Students careers are developed straight away from the first year.
