What's it like to live in West Midlands?
Check out our region guide

The West Midlands is made up of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire. Its main cities are Birmingham, Coventry, and Wolverhampton.

It’s the most diverse part of the country behind London, with a proud multicultural history: from the birth of Two-Tone music – a combination of Caribbean ska and English punk – in Coventry, to the Balti curry, courtesy of Birmingham’s Pakistani community.

Once the heart of heavy industry and manufacturing, Peaky Blinders fans will be familiar with the region’s murky criminal underworld in the early 20th century. Although you might be surprised to learn that Birmingham is one of the youngest cities in Europe, with over 40% under 25 years old.

Campus and facilities

Our Coventry city-centre campus is continually developing and evolving, and we have plans for further investment in it over the next few years. We are a major presence in Coventry, which contributes to the city's friendly and vibrant atmosphere and enables us to foster successful business partnerships. 

Our Coventry University London campus is in the heart of one of the biggest financial markets, in a city that is a global trading centre. It is the ideal place to learn about business. 

We also have our CU Coventry campus which opened in 2019 and is just a short walk away from the city centre. CU Scarborough is our £14m purpose-built seaside campus and CU London have sites in Dagenham and North Greenwich. 

Coventry University Wroclaw is located to the south of the city centre in Wroclaw - a thriving industrial, commercial and educational centre for the region. All degrees are taught in English, and we offer a range of vocational degrees with the opportunity for a career-focused placement.
