My BSc in Computer Science rocks! Teaching's top-notch, they break down complex stuff like it's a piece of cake. Tons of resources too – labs, libraries, you name it. And guess what? Learning's a blast! Finding out how things work in the tech world? Super fun! It's not just classes, it's like a journey where you actually enjoy figuring out all those cool techy secrets. 🚀💻 read more

Appalling teaching. In the name of diversity and saving money one tutor teaching few different modules. Extremely poor English, on lectures barely can understand anything.Lectures read from slides, with lecturer not knowing what he is doing. You will not get any help, as at your tutorials you have the same lecturers from different subjects who give you A4 with answers for the end of the semester, because they do not know how to explain. Marking is the same as teaching. Prospects of getting a job tiny. You end up with a bit of a basics in Python, basics of C++, and a bit of a basics of Java, using Netbeans IDE. Waste of money!!! read more

I was very impressed with the open day and the staff so couldn't wait to start. Then I was put into a group who had lectures missed off the timetable which took weeks to realise then down to us to catch up. Turns out they scheduled the coding help times into that slot so our group does not get the help we are entitled too. The staff are different to the open days very disappointed. Hard to understand the accents of the lecturers in some modules. Also very unfair groups in the ALL projects why should certain students have to do the work of 5? Oh and turns out they messed up our 2nd semester timetable again. The books we should receive have been for-fitted in return for a s***** Chromebook which helps our course in no way at all. The tutors dont have any experience in the language we are learning? I 100% regret choosing Coventry University now. read more

Some of the tutors have no idea what they are doing, and wont try to change their teachings - but most of them are highly professional and do a lot to help you with your work. Personal tutors are not engaging too much with their groups and are slacking off their free hours read more
