      Facilities

      Our library seems extremely well resourced and funded, providing the best possible references and information to students on any course - it is a contributory factor to Coventry University's rise up the university rankings in recent years. Availability of PCs and special equipment such as laser/foam cutters and engineering applications such as Computer aided design programmes poor, and most computers slow and unable to cope with these. Free gym membership in first year extremely useful, would be better to extend this through to second year in order to attract more students (reduce court prices aswell). Extremely good training/gym equipment

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
