Professor John Latham CBE, Coventry University vice-chancellor, said: “The latest Guardian rankings contain plenty of positive news and we are proud that we are the top modern university in the Midlands, the second highest performing modern university in England and the joint top modern university for career prospects.
“To cap off an impressive performance, seven of our courses are ranked in the top ten in their subjects, and we could not be prouder of our colleagues and students who contributed to these successes.”
Hospitality, event management and tourism, as well as social work courses offered at CU London were among the top ten for their subject areas.
The Guardian University Guide determined career prospects based on a national survey, to indicate the percentage of graduates who find graduate-level jobs or go on to further study at professional or higher education level 15 months after graduation.
