Santander sponsors "UK University of the Year" Award (Disponible solo en inglés)

United Kingdom, 3rd December 2015.- Coventry University won the University of the Year title at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015, held in association with Santander Universities.

Vice-Chancellor John Latham received the accolade from Santander UK Non-Executive Chairman Shriti Vadera. Baroness Vadera was joined at the Santander tables by vice-chancellors of some of the Santander partner Universities in the UK as well as members of the Santander Universities team.

At a time when universities are often accused of ploughing familiar furrows, Coventry University stands out as an institution that is willing to take calculated risks to help its students succeed.

John Gill, editor of Times Higher Education, said: “The judges were impressed with Coventry’s achievements across a range of activities and, in particular, by its novel approach to improving access. We’re always looking for pioneers who make bold attempts to tackle the issues facing higher education locally, regionally and nationally, and Coventry is to be congratulated for doing it so successfully.”

Coventry’s victory was witnessed by more than 1,100 people, who gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane for the awards last night, hosted by comedian Rory Bremner.

The Minister for Universities and Science, Jo Johnson MP, joined universities from all over the country to celebrate the greatest ideas, the finest practice and the very best researchers and teachers in the sector.

The Times Higher Education Awards are now in their eleventh year and are widely recognised as the Oscars of the higher education sector, shining a spotlight on the outstanding achievements of institutions, teams and individuals in the UK higher education sector.

Santander has been sponsoring the awards since 2010 and many of this year’s awardees are partners of Santander Universities.
