We are proud to working in collaboration with our partner, Aegean College Greece, with whom we have enjoyed a fruitful relationship.
We are a leading university group with a dynamic operation, which is globally enabled and technologically advanced. The group is known for providing a ground-breaking high-quality learning experience for all its students; delivering research which is focused on “excellence with impact” in areas of niche dominance; a commitment to internationalisation in student recruitment, partnership and collaborative working, alongside a global curriculum and staff and student mobility; and a real “business engaged” model of enterprise and innovation.
While we have become a global institution, we respect our history. In 2018, we celebrated 175 years since our institution began. Our origins in Coventry as an industrial city serve as a reminder of the need to ensure that our courses reflect the needs of individuals and employers, that our research should have “originality, significance and rigour” with a world-leading reputation, and that our engagement with business in enterprise and innovation should support social and economic prosperity – all within a local, national and international knowledge economy.
We are committed to finding and working with academic institutions who are innovative, enterprising and entrepreneurial and who share our ambitious international agenda and the same desire to deliver excellence in education. We are proud to be working together to make sure that all our graduates – wherever they study – have the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their life’s ambitions.
