Coventry University is a vibrant, international and multicultural university, built on a strong tradition of innovation and enterprise and highly ambitious for its future. Widely regarded as a leader in the international field it has a well devleloped international strategy to 2020 that has seen it become one of the largest recruiters of international students in the UK and one of the top 10 for the delivery of programmes overseas. We have a leadership position in respect of enhancing student experience through international engagement – staff and student exchange levels are sector-leading, there are many specific initiatives to drive global mindsets and internationalisation is embedded in the curriculum. Coventry University is also developing an international research agenda through its niche research strengths.
Building on this success Coventry University is entering the next phase of its development and is intending to make a substantial investment across all areas of activity, including our rapidly evolving internationalisation agenda.
The Associate Heads of School we are appointing will play a key role in delivering the internationalisation strategy and embedding an international outlook across all activities. The posts will facilitate growth of new and existing partnerships to drive revenue while also enhancing academic returns. In so doing they will contribute significantly to increasing the quality of service to partners and augmenting the learning experience of students.
