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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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).

Cons?
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!

Excellent Univeristy.

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.

Cons?
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.
