Fun place to study lots of great clubs and activities
Overall the facilities are up to the mark, especially the library.
Had a great time at the university.
It has been the best experience ever. I have had a really great time
Coventry university, student living
I loved the experience. I have learned a lot.
As an aerospace engineering system at Coventry University, the lectures rarely disappoint me.
The building my course is run from is a bit old and run down, but most of the other facilities are great
All love from me! Don’t know what else to say but I’m happy with the way things are done here.
Great uni for learning technology, good teaching faculty and very helpful staff members
One of the best university in the uk
The campus is beautiful and facilities are great.
The location is great, there are a lot of societies that you can join
The careers service is good, very helpful
Great University, amazing place to live in as a student!!
Healthcare facilities are amazing, especially the Alison Gingell building.
Everything seems fine but the enrolment process is not so smooth sometimes.
Good university overall, sometimes feels rushed with 2 semesters and makes it hard to study and have a social life at the same time
The university management is way too terrible, it's more than a month that I'm in UK(arrived on 28th of January 2022) and I'm still facing issues with my enrollment, they took exactly one month to get my enrollment done partially and gave me IT services; however, they enrollment me in a wrong mode(part time) of course, whereas I'm a full time student. Above all this, I haven't received my ID card yet and due to which I'm loose all my attendance though I'm attending all the classes.
Excellent university to study at! Lots of activities to do throughout your course. Excellent teaching support from faculties. Good placement support for future. I would recommend this university to upcoming students.
Good uni, really enjoyed my time here
Its not bad its going great so far
It’s a nice university. I thought there would be more societies to meet new people and take part in more thing but nothing was active. The hub is a nice place to study and spend time with friends. The library is really nice too
it’s spacious and the vibes are good
Good university but there are space for improvement
It is in good location so friendly I am happy to live this experience
Very useful and helpful with work
The university is great or I wouldn't of spent four years here
Really good place to study, good teacher and everything :)
Good experience, definetely I would repeat it
As it’s my first year, i’ve nothing much to say. My experience is going well so far.
Organized University , i enjoy it
Happy with all the support I received from my professors and tutors, overall happy with my experience here.
Coventry University has a good reputation for many courses. All University building are located within a short walk of each other. Teaching standards are excellent which is one of many reasons why I have stayed on to do my postgraduate course here as well.
It’s alright depending on the course chosen
Have everything what u can desire for and the faculty is also very experience
It is a university I would recommend friends.
Excellent WiFi, Excellent nightlife Cheap travel in comparison to London. Everything is walking distance
Coventry University is a good place to study, good environment to meet new people and also engage in good social clubs. The night life is interesting
It’s only been 2 weeks since I came to university but I’m feeling already welcomed to various groups…and I like it that way.
Compared a lot of unis and then decided to get into Coventry. Coventry is a whole student experience city and has a lot of facilities and social places to experience as a student. It also has a great QS ranking.
It's great for data science. Not sure about other courses
Great university for masters in automotive engineering
Beautiful environment and best place to study
Coventry university is one of the best place in the United KINGDOM for the international students to peruse theri higher education. The education standard is very high upto the world level
Best universities for international students
University has good quality facilities. Staff helps a lot
Excellent university. Serene environment
Great viewing at paradise with the lady called Michelle
Careers Service Is very good. I have learned really useful thing in Careers Service.
I’ve really enjoyed my time at uni and my course
It has been a lovely experience
Very fun, never a dull moment. Very culturally diverse
Very good experience in this place
Cov Uni i fantastic fun. There are great opportunities if you look for them. Even though it’s rankings are nothing special the atmosphere is fantastic.
Communication wise Coventry university could improve as students are always kept waiting for timetables and information regarding assignments. However, almost everything else is good. In particular, they have a brilliant careers team.
Coventry University is a great place to study as it offers one of the best theoretical and practical experience one can get.
i think my student experience was really affected by covid which resulted in a very unusual uni experience
Does the job, good uni,not a nice city
Coventry University is a really good uni to study at
It was my first choice university I am generally pleased
The overall uni is good but teaching lack in places.
It’s a good university, specifically for engineering, it is one of the best in the UK.
University is massive, but it’s easy to find your way around the campus.
Coventry university is a very good university to study.
Great staff, very friendly and care how the students are doing with their work.
It's an all-round experience all together. Coventry University has all great qualified lecturers who are more like your friends thus making you feel comfortable whilst studying your course. There is ample resources available online and offline in the library.
Great uni. Nice environment, instalations and quality of education.
Best university to explore many things and to get best outcomes in future
Been studying here for a while, glad to be here. Friends are nice. The city centre has been newly renovated, so everything is pretty good. Teaching quality is good enough but can be better. It's worth coming here. Enjoyable!
All the facilities are quite good at Coventry university. I hope the su and staffs can give more support for the international student.
They don't help students in studies or financially, If you are a student and send emails to enquire about the fees and other, they wont reply, if you call them to know the same and they know they are at fault, they will drop email by saying , this is reminder email, Also they won't help the students in studies even when the student will ask for extra attention. This is the world's worst uni, please don't fall into the trap and ruin ur career and money.
Coventry University has an excellent campus and the techincal equiptment to handle this new age of learning. However, some of the lectures think that this is an excuse not to work as hard as they otherwise could.
The facilities on campus are up to a good standard. The teachers I have encountered have all been helpful and informative during seminars. There is alot of support for students of they are struggling.
Great staff and guidance, a lot of opportunities to meet with industry and field experts and great access to facilities
Decent facilities, their process is delayed but apart from that it’s good
It's a really good university and the faculties are also amazing always ready to help and assist you. Do choose this university for your further studies.
Student's union is not existent. The running joke is that it's just something to list on your CV, they don't actually do anything. I couldn't tell you anything they did in the 20/21 period, that is the honest truth. The academic staff are honest, hard-working people (at least in the engineering department). They work hard, and provide a valuable and helpful service. The same can be said for the welfare staff (they do actually support you, and we love them for it). The admin staff are another story, they are rude and bloody frustrating. They seem to enjoy revoking access to random sites at random times, and then holding you for 15-20 minutes + for no discernable reason. If you attend Coventry (at least in engineering) you will love the professors, lectures etc. However, you will likely also considering beating the ****out of the admin staff (e.g. registry).
Good university, modern study area, a lot of green in the university.
Good place to study, highly recommend.
I love this uni. every staff is kind and provides high quality lesson.
Teaching and learning experience in Coventry University has made me realise how lucky I am to be a part of it.
University was good. Haven’t been able to explore much or have full access due to Covid 19
It's alright, due to covid it is difficult to review now
I guess the studies in pandemic period was pleasent experience for anyone, especially for students who had take loans to fund their studies . The university did no efforts to take that situation and students into consideration while the tuition fees was being collected. I believe I was not able to have a university experience that reflected the tuition fees that I had to pay. Rest everything regarding the courses and the quality of education I am satisfied
One of the best university for international students
This university chosen by my god and it is going good for me
Great experience overall. Very exciting to be able to engage with like minded peers.
Good experience with the univeristy with professional lecturers always willing to help when needed. Staff outside of curricular activities has also been very helpful.
The life at university is good. Environment is friendly and every volunteer at the hub is cooperative
Overall, a great university. Good facilities and staff are very friendly.
I am a physiotherapy student, I like the AG building very much, comfortable environment for Study Experienced lecturer, multi cultural learning atmosphere
Great university with great facilities!
It is a welcoming university with a lot of technical and personal support. It has beautiful facilities and the students are very friendly.
Really gud university strong recommend it
nice reception service good room environment
Open university, perfect courses for my ideal career
Everything is ok but maybe sometimes teachers can reply faster
My year in uni so far has been online so i cant say much about it
it is an amazing uni with great lecturers. you will love it here.
It’s an outstanding University! The lecturers are knowledgeable, kind, understanding and they respond to queries shockingly fast and passionately with clarity. The student support is awesome, every question I had and asked has been answered clearly, the people are great, the community is awesome, and the provision for student’s educationally and otherwise is outstanding.
Lovely accommodation. The rooms are comfortable and the place is quite close to everything. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an accommodation in Coventry
Great university environment, variety of clubs and societies available which is great for socialising.
The services were alright. As an international student, the international office really dropped the ball in many ways. I arrived in the country with no communication regarding how to proceed. I have mostly been in the dark due to the pandemic, which no one at the school knew how to handle. Most of the teachers were awful at responding to me. Basically, i could have just read a couple of textbooks and learned just as much. Was of money aside from the piece of paper at the end that says I got my Master's.
They have made the transition to online classes easy and have been very understanding of the covid-19 situation :)
Classmates are very sociable. Supervisors are happy to develop students with all they can give.
The university does have a lot of helpful facilities and before the pandemic it was a lot more easier to communicate with lectures or seek help/advice
Great university with excellent laboratories and academic staff.
Science building really modern and perfect for my degree
I spent really valuable time in Coventry and I enjoy it very much. The university was so responsible even during this COVID-19 difficult time.
Can’t say much about this as I haven’t been in due to Covid but from what I know it’s not as bad as some people make it out to be. Teachers are very friendly and helpful if you go out your way to ask for help and try from your side as well
Really good accomodation . Would def recommend
Its ok, they have really struggled with communication and stuff recentl6
I like the club been into basketball and the building overall is nice been enjoying being over there.
Great uni other than all the due rules due to covid
Great university and good value for money
Good general facilities such as the hub and the library. Can’t comment too much on courses as it’s subjective to each department, my experience with the Health and Life Sciences department has been fairly good. Although the graduate services don’t really offer too much in terms of graduate opportunities/placements, it all things you could easily find yourself.
Coventry university is a great place to learn and find job opportunities
People in the university are nice.
It’s lockdown what’s there to say
I’ve graduated from Coventry university and now I am studying towards my MA here too! I highly recommend choosing Coventry University. In my experience studying Interior Architecture and Design and now Interior Design, the lecturers and tutors are amazing and go above and beyond.
Coventry University is a great university with excellent facilities and amazing faculty staff
It’s my first time in Coventry and we’ve only course, so I don’t really know what to say but my teachers are really kind. We talk like if we were friends. I’m from Belgium and in Belgium you don’t talk like this to your teachers.
I have had the worst experience with the University- please if you are considering attending this University, consider somewhere else! I have studied at 2 other Universities and they truly put CU to shame. The staff at Coventry University are rude, unsympathetic and there is very little support. This being said, despite the staff who let the University down the lecturers are friendly and great in what they do. Avoid at all costs students unless you want problem after problem and no support.
I am satisfied with my choice, I met great people and I hope I will be able to meet them face to face again
I have enjoyed my time at Coventry University it has been a very good experience
Very nice university and helpful for future.
Lovely place for students. It is close to the city centre as well as being in a private area, meaning no disturbances. Rooms are lovely as well as other communal areas. Staff are very friendly, helpful, caring and very beautiful. Would recommend.
Good university and the student unions are good in sharing students voices and making sure most problems are heard .
as CU Coventry student I do confirm high standard provided and satisfaction. Campus is modern, cozy and you can possibly find everything you as a student might need or want. Quality of education really depends on which teacher you will have, but that is a matter or luck.
very disappointed with customer service. Registry is the worst team ever! never respond to queries. very bad experience. I wish I had never chose that uni
Looking forward to exploring more opportunities
I’ve enjoyed my experience so far and look forward to more opportunities.
Campus is nice and teachers will help
Specifically Auto & Transport Design. Used to be a great course with great tutors and regarded as one of the best. Now it's lost its prestige and tutors are just picked by who is retired or cheap. Always last minute with things like timetables, tutorial times or useful information for deadlines in general. In general you end up learning more from other students than the actual tutors. Saying that there's max 3 tutors that do their best and I wish they'd teach at a better university because this one doesn't deserve them. The industry is slowly losing interest in the university, purely because the quality of work is no longer to the standard. This makes finding placements/jobs hard but Clare helps amazingly. She's magic. In terms of facilities, they are useable. Good enough for the level of work and effort put into the course. Almost feels like the university forgot they had this course, as they were spending millions on a sports science and two engineering buildings.
modern and nice and helpful staff. I enjoyed my tiime living here and met some super cool people. students pubs around the campus were chill.
it's okay. careers service lacking ngl.
Study inn accommodation : Old, dark room, uncomfortable bed, sofa broken, worst desk chair ever, house keeping once 1 month, the fire alarm test every week scares me every time, tooooo many doors, otherwise staff are friendly.
great university, ranking depends on course but was great for mine
Coventry University is a great experience for me as international student. Every working person there helped to make the experience the best for international students.
Very nice and got a lot of sport and activities.
Many classrooms has no WiFi and signal, it’s so bad
the university is really good and staff are helpful
Supportive and excellent teaching staff. The students union arranges various extra curricular activities for students and also take measures to keep students mentallu fit.
University is fine with the system wish they can do more to help us when it comes to graduating and support during this time for looking for jobs
I used to check reviews online about cov uni before coming and i honestly don’t know why i didn’t believe how s*** of a school this is. They’ve basically left us alone during this coronavirus pandemic, lecturers never reply messages, the university isn’t helping in any way to make things easier for the students, anyone marks your coursework and gives ya rubbish grades (some people get marked high even when they don’t include some info and people get marked really low when they follow course work brief) worst part is you can’t even appeal your grades. Everything seemed okay at first, but this pandemic just showed how s*** the uni is. Btw you need to make sure your masters course is accredited cos a lot of them aren’t. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE
Good experience Helpful staff
The uni is such a sham and very "corporate" feeling with none of the glamour. Coventry is so boring as a city. I got so sick of students hired in TheHub who are often totally fed up and smarmy when it comes to their job. Also the students union just sits around and twiddles their thumbs all day.
fabulous, unless you're lgbtq, then you're not welcome
i have loved my experience at the Coventry university and cannot wait for another year
my time that the Coventry university has been an experience to remember and i cannot wait for another year!
Great student accommodation in city center, close to shops public transport and restaurants. Lovely, helpful staff. Amazing facilities-gym, study rooms room service. I would recommend it to anybody.
It's ok, student hub and library are nice
Unforgettable memories, I look forward to still having the opportunity to return to Coventry to see the city I have struggled with in the future.
Can't comment on other courses, but happy to recommend for engineering. Very good teaching, good facilities, very supportive staff. Students' union is useless, but some good societies.
I’ve had a great experience with my university so far! Everything is so close by, library has been refurbished and has an amazing science building!
Fantastic experience for my first year of university.
Coventry university is considered one of the top universities in the UK. Master's experience , before COVID-19, was lovely especially with the help of the professors and lecturers.
absolute worst dint enjoy my time at all
eh it's average. campus culture extremely soulless and corporate. students union kind of just... existed and the careers service got me nowhere as they had nothing available in our department most of the time. met some decent people at socs though.
The university is very good and is an upcoming student city, a very nice place to study
Pretty good, course is all in all helpful and engaging. Very good facilities (library, hub ect)
rip off university with professors that do the bare minimum. stay clear!
Ive really enjoyed my time at Coventry uni
Pitifully boring and dull just like Coventry itself.
modern but nothing much more than the costa and starbucks really going on in the buildings. quids inn is nice and the city has a couple of cool places like fargo. not much going on otherwise unless you hop on a train to birmingham.
awful just awful. the professors have no clue about organisation and are absent and difficult to get a hold of all the time, especially via email. we got stood up on 4 lessons by one of the lecturers. and everyone in the class just puts up with it and doesn't raise their voice. i feel like i'm stuck with sheeple haha. quids inn is nice though and the city has a couple of cool places. not much going on otherwise unless you hop on a train to birmingham.
ONE OF THE WORST UNIVERSITIES IN UK, all they are good at is marketing themselves to international students to make as much money as possible. They do not teach at all, campus in London is horrible in a rented space and teachers don't give af about students (except a few). All they care about is that you pay your fees on time. Teachers would enter the class and tell the students to "discuss within their own groups for assignments" which is highly unacceptable considering the amount they are charging. One of our teachers would just enter the class and sit and chat for 2 hours with students about their country and his own, other teachers would enter the class, open up a case study on the projector screen and tell you to solve it without even teaching about it. Another thing they care about is attendance, They won't teach but they expect you to show up every day just to sit around in class so it feels like a university. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.
Coventry university is an all round ok school. I enjoyed my course and met a few good friends.
This is a review on the coventry university global mba business course. (summary, dont bother) Honestly coventry university global mba business course is a joke and a scam!! You are better off going to other universities and perhaps paying a bit more for a real MBA course. The course is taught by phd students or lecturers that actually have no clue on practical things to do with their topics, it is simply academic theories and some more academic theories that would not make it past week 2 of an undergraduate program in a major university. They easily lure in international students, then just teach them basic academic theories which makes me question what they would teach undergrads if this is what is taught in an mba. If you have any idea on business, or have worked previously you will be extremely frustrated by the course content as you know none of it is applicable in real life. I thought I would save a few people on here of their £16000 so that they dont waste time and money
Decent. There needs to be more support in regards to postgraduate study. Some lecturers will never reply to your emails. Library is too small for the amount of people here, you euther leave at the crack of dawn or you wont get a seat. The staff at the information point in the hub are rude and have so much attitude when you ask a question. Lecture halls need a revamp and a new coat of paint.
The campus is undergoing major renovation so there is a lot of construction going on and the sound of it does interfere with lectures. Food is expensive, there are no disposable cups available to use on the water fountains and the toilets I've used have been filthy and smelly. Haven't joined any clubs as I'm there to learn, not pay for memberships to participate in activities an hour away from home. Wi-Fi is advertised, however it rarely works.
Awesome quality in everything the school has got going on.
I have good experience in school and student are really nice.
the campus is nice and the facilities are good
Great uni with lots of great facilities and a large library.
The Coventry University is very organized and helps students a lot. The campous is large and it has perfect location, near the Coventry City Centre.

Is a good Uni I can study what i’m passionate at so I am glad that I am here.
Brilliant uni Only in my first year but so far has been the best educational experience of my life
The facilities in the Health and Sciences building are excellent. However, there is very little support to get through the social aspect of University life. Adult bullying is rife among 18-25-year-old students, with peer-groups segregating and separating themselves, icing-out others, and by creating factions with a gang-like mentality. Some blatantly generating hostility and spreading salacious put-downs in order to better their own social standing and thus create a situation under their control. Group-work is tense and difficult because communication is broken down between peers over divided-loyalties. Teachers have very little power to stop this behaviour and in some cases, by being "down with the kids," are actively contributing to the bullying problem at Coventry University.
This university receives an unfair reputation that stems from Coventry City’s own reputation- but both are outdated and no longer apply. The university is modern and deserves much more recognition than it gets
•4 good lecturers left leaving us with TA in final year of Criminology. One taught us the module wrong so we didn’t know how to write the assignment. •Uni Private house was advertised 15 mins away from uni (walk). Was 45 minutes away. •Dissertation tutors didn’t respond to emails and weren’t helpful. •Some lecturers never responded to emails and apologised when were told they didn’t. Said they’ll respond straight away but never did. •Group work - 4 members, 2 left 3 days before the assignment was in. Was given a week extension to the the whole assignment on our own. •Personal Tutor left first year at Uni. Never knew who my new tutor was for the remaining 2 years. •Everyone complained on the end of module Reviews of how bad the course is. Had a body inspecting it. But the lectures were told they are being observed so they picked up the teaching game for that week and dropped it back to how it was when the inspection stopped. •Student rep was useless and unhelpful.
Coventry University is a university with fantastic academic facilities and resources, as well as outgoing staff. I have been made to feel so welcome here and had all the support I needed. The big issue is how the management treat staff, with low pay rates, impossible targets, and treating us students like a commodity. Plus the wifi is sort of bad so there’s that.
I absolutely love my time at Coventry university. It was a university I chose as my top choice but I'm so glad I'm here. I came to the university on a course that I didnt really want to do and within the first few days decided to change. The staff were fantastic. They helped me every step of the way, my old course made it so easy to leave and my new lectures were so welcoming and nice. The staff at this uni really are willing to move mountains for you. Or atleast in the Health and Life science department they are. The Alison gingell building is stunning, so good for learning. The uni is always having building work going on
The above facilities are very fine.
Great university, great staff for finding places and an app to locate lectures.
These aspects were good, but if you think they are collateral aspects, they should improve them.
Fun place, very much a student town. Everyone is friendly and everything is close by.
Has anyone had recently completed the MSc International Event Management program?
Very poor University if you need any support. University will not recognise any of its own failings and puts all blame on student. Coventry University is not interested in its students- only interested in taking your money.
I like the campus at Coventry university.
I spent a year MSc programme. The university lecturers are helpful and supportive, but the course didn't well organised for my course. The library need to be expanded, it's too crowded, hard to find empty spaces to study, limited books. The central academics writing is nice and helpful.
Good university with the best library service.
Overall the university is good.
Nice campus, however there wasn't much to do in the city centre.
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!!!
everything you need and all close to each other
I have been here for four months and from my point of view, the buildings are outdated, there are many courses with overlapping content and 8 out of 10 times when using the printing machines, they were out of order. WiFi is very slow.
see previous comments 8::::::::::::::::::>
New buildings being opened but there is a large amount of students so finding seats in library can be difficult at certain times.
Everything good so far. Great help and opportunities available.
Teachers and facilities are really good
Pretty good institutions with its facilities and helpful lecturers
The university itself, is no help. They say they will help you with finance, however they don't. They say they will help if you have any issues with your health, but they don't. There is a lack of campus feeling, and campus itself. Whatever they have is VERY small, and the town itself lacks food places, and shops. The clubs/societies are the only good things about the university, even then there is only a few. STUDENTS UNION - no help at all. They don't really bother, and most of the time they don't even know what they are doing, the only time they will even bother is when they want you to vote for them. Careers Service - B*******. Literally, went to them for my CV several times, they didn't even know what they were doing, tried it myself and job several job offers. Internet/Wifi - bloody slow.
It is very difficult to put this into a short paragraph when it begins from my first day of uni, until my final year and final day of uni. For students looking to do fashion design at Coventry university, let me say DO NOT DO IT, you want to study fashion? try going abroad to parsons, or studying at Central Saint Martins, London college of fashion ORRR get an apprenticeship!!! DO NOT STUDY FASHION AT COVENTRY UNIVERSITY unless you want to fail or be miserable! THE TEACHERS are the worst I have ever seen! They show favouritism towards students, especially if those students are white, if you are black, Asian or even worse muslim, then I am so sorry, but this is not the place for you. It's full of white teachers who are racist, and hate BAME students. I have factual evidence of this, The course is not well structured at all, you do not receive any help, everything I have learnt, and other students have learn was all SELF TAUGHT. They can't be bothered to help you.
The University has good facilities
Pretty damn good. Plenty of societies, great fascilities and all round great uni.
Modern university with great facilities
Good uni. Only issue is keep increasing the number of students each year and there isn't enough facilities, especially in the library and CAW which is so difficult to get an appointment. Some teachers are willing to help you while some are not.
overall good, could have better societies
Fantastic,everything so close to each other and really friendly
Really good Uni 13th best in the nation
Nice campus, not so much encouragement to get involved.
A great university where they care about student feedback, and invest in their students and facilities. The campus is city based, so wherever you go in the ring road, you're likely to be connected to uni wifi! The careers service is amazing and even offers free CV help and job search help even after you graduate. Got some great clubs and societies and have a sports varsity event each year against Warwick. The students union is friendly and approachable and runs some great events in the year, including a summer ball at the end of each year. We even have a cinema on campus with cheap tickets! (Square One) and a 24 hour library
So many support available for my course. Teachers are excellent. The campus is big but enough for walking distance. Lots of different societies to choose from, allowing you to explore your interests, learn from others, meet new people, gain friends etc. The city is small however it is a modern city with a historical background and kept its originality evident at the Cathedral. Great place to study and learn. 10/10
A great Engineering facility, with all the bits and bobs you might need. Staff contact time is amazing, with four lecturers per module each with two hours availability outside of your lectures just waiting in a room for you to ask questions. Other support is also available outside the facility with maths, English etc.
The university is great to the course they provide with quick reply and help from both teachers and staffs. In addition to this, they provide the latest materials required in the line of course.
Poor accomodation choices at time of beginning course which has contributed to numerous issues with lls, lecturers and advisors are not the most helpful when needed. Would avoid this uni like a plague if possible.
Rubbish career service who only tell you your options once you have paid off everything to the uni then you can graduate and then you can access the careers advice
Very helpful careers service, with loads of activities and advice
Honestly a waste of time and money.
Coventry University has a cool city campus with juxtaposition of brand new glass buildings and the cathedral ruins. The university has top class facilities and teaching and has a real focus on employability skills creating graduates that are in a great position to finish university with a job they enjoy.
It's a city campus. Medium size. It's growing to be better. But I wouldn't recommend undergrates to come here bcoz it's not a top university. Postgrate is fine. If your result allowed you to apply for a better school, go. Internet was a pain in the ass when I first came here. Certain devices couldnt be connected and once I logged on it kept logging me out. Need to go to IT service. Sports hall could be bigger. Space is limited for sport that requires big move. Certain sports have to go other places like squash (at warwickshire), gymnastics, rock climbing, netball etc Good thing about this uni is that they have a lot of activities going on. Overall university is all about yourself.
From the information my daughter has given me, the University as a whole was very good
Shocking. London campus is not a proper university but run from a municipal building. The lecturers seem to be rejects from proper universities
VIVA LA COV UNI. Given the Student Union a 4/5 purely bc it's a city uni so doesn't really need a student union, so no one uses it. Clubs are so good, you have 3 great Cov clubs (the holy trinity) and then Leam clubs are amazing, not to mention BIRMS!! Their careers service goes above and beyond, always trying to give me advice even though I'm rarely listening (my bad). The campus is great and getting even better, it's right next to the town centre and the Hub is sick and really new. William Morris is cool af. Societies are great and seem to get a lot of funding for trips and stuff too. Cov Uni will look after you and you'll love it there.
The worst university in the planet
Awful. Careless. Just don't go. Waste of time and money!!!
as a student at Morton morrell college I hate it with a passion it is the most horrendous campus with no night life or social events the whole thing has no money so I am stuck with no hot water and my horse whom I brought with me has to live in a leaky stable with no turnout and very limited use of poorly maintained arenas with staff being exceedingly rude and obnoxious would not recommend !
Coventry University is a vibrant hub of life which, in all honesty, is the only thing that seems to keep Coventry alive. This city is run entirely by students which provides a real sense of community to the university experience. On the other hand, the uni does not have that many great clubs and societies and the hub - where the SU is - is just a cafeteria and a bunch of computers. At other uni's there are bars and clubs and fun events held at their SU, which is why CUSU is rather lacking.
University buildings and student union is all in one area so makes it easy to get anywhere. Plus it's in the middle of the city so the centre is really close (5 minute walk). Plenty of facilities for students and the library has tonnes of options for help regardless of your course. Student union and societies are always open and the variety makes it good since anyone can find something they like or would want to try.
Good uni, made loads of friends first year, cannot wait to go back!
Coventry university is rough around the edges but the facilities and campus are exceptional ( for computing/engineering), facilities are improving every year, and I'm not talking petty changes.. Admittedly the place needs more clubs/bars but you really can make the most of it !!!
Plenty of clubs and societies, I've always found that there are plenty that I want to join. The Hub is great and there are plenty of useful facilities in this university, especially in the Lancaster Library which is brilliant. I've never had to use the Careers Service.
the uni itself is great and it has a lot to offer bt there isnt really a student union which makes things really s***
Su pretty much non existent, no student bar, but campus is lovely
Not got a very United student feel to the university and the city isn't great, but got some great facilities.
Coventry University is amazing, excellent staff and lots of opportunities to take part in societies and events. The locations are quite spaced out are can be difficult to find at first however. The library is very large and the Hub is always full of life.
Great uni campus and friendly people and staff, never feel lonely as there is always a great vibe and staff are awesome
Campus is great, it's a shame they didn't do anything with it. Societies are limited, hardly anything is even there on the list, so it's sh*t. Student Union is sh*t, we don't even have a SU Bar, like proper one anyways. Careers services is meh. You get emails about things 1 hour before its about to happen and it's irritating because sometimes its interesting. Internet is great though!
About to finish my MSc at Coventry and it has been a mixed bag. If you're coming to this university to party you're going to have a bad times. Two clubs, Kasbah is the only good one. Not alot of great student pubs. The nightlife in the city really can't compete with anywhere. It is fairly safe though which is a bonus. The university itself is new, nice looking. The SU building is good but lacks a decent bar. It's open like once a week and that's it. The SU staff are pretty terrible. Load of unorganised posers who do it for the money. No student movement at all. The course I do in theory is good. Lots of good down to earth lecturers. Where the uni fails with its postgrad students is the admissions. I'd say 70% of the people who are in my class should simply not be there. The university lets in alot of international students because of the massive fees they pay. This totally devalues the course because the course has to be dumbed down so that these people will pass.
Wifi is accessable most places on campus, all of the services offered are exemplary
Some of the buildings are pretty awesome , others look terrible. The unions are well organised but not very active after some time
Curently studying Business Management (1st year), and already loving it. The teaching quality is amazing, great environment in lectures and seminars, so they totally deserve Modern University OF The Year 2015!
Internet is slow , student union don't really do much and a lot of buildings are out dated
Great place, The Hub is brilliant and everyone is so friendly!
Everything is amazing! Everything I need is here and a lot of opportunities!
Absolutely loving my experience at Cov uni. Saw many uni's during the interview process and this Coventry was by far the best!!
This university suitable for anyone. There is always someone who can help you, you can not be bored because of the huge amount of programs and societies and the employment rate after graduation is really high.
Before u apply any major, make sure u have done clearly research! And it is exactly what you want
campus has lots to do and always something going on and people on hand to help you!
So glad I choose Coventry such a lovely campus and city!
Quite modern, love The Hub, brand new library, also has a trading floor which is cool.
very modern, loads of support, and some great nightclubs
Coventry is definitely one of the best university experiences out there. I've visited many on nights out but always come back to Coventry by the end just because the atmosphere is so much better. The student union is very helpful and adaptable for whatever you need.
Wonderful university everything a student can dream of .
Coventry University has had a incredible ascension lately and it definitely makes huge steps towards the top of the rankings. However there are still lots of things to do if we talk about the student union and staff's e-mail response rating
It is a great University with a diverse range of courses that have a lot to offer. Also, the field trips are an amazing plus!!
Amazing university. You definitely want to come and spend 3 years here.
Great university. Currently improving dramatically.
Really impressed with facilities and teaching methods, AddVantage modules have been very beneficial to my CV.
Not many societies at all needs to be more of a variety
Great facilities, awesome su, lots of opportunities to go abroad with funding
Ive been really let down by the uni careers department this year. Completely inadequate and uncaring. Student support is minimal in areas such as counciling. Literally no nightlife whatsoever just a few pretty awful clubs and nowhere with regular live music or venues for people into other genres of music than dance. Overall pretty bad experience.
Everything is walking distance which is great. It is so easy to make so many friends. I have overall enjoyed my year spent in Coventry University so far. However, the town centre is not very big.
I am doing ma interior design and it could be better organised
Fantastic university, really good lectures and students to be with. Has everything you need. Coventry city itself is small so don't expect much from that but if you come here to study then you won't be disappointed. Fun things to do too. :)
Uni is fine, union isnt as good as what I've heard about else where, Coventry itself is a s**** tip aha especially if you're into music, don't bother, there's nothing going on in Coventry.
So happy that I put Cov as my first choice!
The Cov University deserve s to have a hunger ranking
experience wise, nothing compares to be a coventry university student.
Amazing University, much more than I hoped it would be
i love coventry, it just has a really good vibe about it!, unfortunatly i feel the students union is lacking without its own specified bar and club
yes it is the best university and school I have ever attended.
Uni is okay but felt that my course Tutors was not completely sure of what they were teaching us could have had more training on the course
Not much to do for students and no good events
Really good university, tutors are fantastic on my course and ive made some absolutely fantastic friends
A very good university with excellent lecturers. Provided with the good facilities along with great services on and off the campus. Easy to fit in campus and the city itself.
I have been there for less than a year, but the amount of kindness and nice people I have met makes up for all the new knowledge I have had to consume. If I had a choice to take my degree now, or continue on for 2-3 more years, I would stay, as a degree is worth nothing if you haven't had any fun. Because in the end, only 1 thing matters - to enjoy life to the fullest.
Great course (Mechanical Engineering) which is what I came for, nice people and lots of fun to be had! Only at year two and I'm already set up for a graduate role when I finish my degree!
At Coventry University, everybody is friendly with everyone. Everyone smiles at everyone. It's a very lively and interesting atmosphere.
Coventry University is a good uni however, it would be useful if the companion books provided upon starting the course actually arrive on time e.g. my fellow peers and I are still waiting on a book which by the time we receive it, the module will be over. The uni really needs to sort out it's organisation.
Great university the engineering side of things are great with amazing course content
needs to be more more events to and things to do in the area, some courses need better value for money, e.g. im paying £9,000 a year to go in once a week for a 2 hour lecture, and its just housekeeping -_- staff need to offer more individual support, teach those that want to be taught e.g. sit down and help with specific skills,and take into consideration the mentality of others, e.g. if students need guidance due to a lack of confidence or unsurity then they need to be helped
Timetables suck. Takes forever to get grades back. But on the plus side the lecturers are pretty good
The uni is great in everything..I'm in my first year and am enjoying it
Great uni, which is only getting better year on year :) come to coventry :D
Coventry university review
Great schemes for traveling abroad In city campus Part of the environment Great history
Not much interdepartmental links
Good if you want to do well
With the 9 grand I spend a year on my course, I get tonnes of out-of-lecture support, free equipment I need for the course(tablet, raspberry pi, chromebook). My building itself is an amazing, filled with access to computers, an awesome careers advice team and a starbucks. The library has the basement area which in my expirience is always open, where students can go to relax and study with access to the uni's great book and software libraries. If you look hard enough in Coventry you can find accomodation thats cheap and will suit you (providing you're not in halls cause their prices are ridiculous).
There are two half decent clubs in Coventry: Kasbah and JJs, Kasbah is constantly being moaned about online due its over crowding and rude staff. The staff i've met are lovely but the main room is like a sardine can. Our student union "The phoenix" is part of a chain of scream pubs and offers overpriced everything along with mediocre food, rosie malones, quids in and the oak are a much better alternative if you want tosave some money- and theyre all next door!
The facilities are top quality and some of the best in the country. There is a real dedication to getting graduates employed once their degree is completed and so there is a focus on employability skills the entire duration of your course. Top lecturers, excellent opportunities.
It's a shame this university is shadowed by nearby Warwick even though it is clearly better as shown by league tables and student employment. Also, as a city, coventry is a bit irrelevant so location isn't great.
