Hard work? - wait 'til you get to the real world!

I write this review as a parent of a student, who has been at this university for three years. During this time, I have visited Coventry many times, both to the university, and the city itself. I have gone in shops, museums, parks, fast food outlets, bars, libraries, and many more places. I have...

You could proabaly find a more prestigious degree

Coventry University is quite a large and well organised university, with something in the region of 15,000 students. A great many of these are from abroad, which generates a sizeable proportion of the uni's income. Student services at Cov are excellent - All first year students are guaranteed...

“Coventry - depends what for”

published 05/10/2000

Some subjects the best in the country

Its not a picturesque place to be

As with all Universities it really depends what it is you are looking at studying when you get there. I know league tables etc give some impressions but reading real reviews may also help. It is worth noting the only bad review of Coventry so far cannot actually be bothered to check what is...

So many

Lack of sleep

When you think of Coventry university, you probably think of crap nightlife, "that hole in the midlands" and other demeaning terms. Well, thats what i used to think!!! but after a severe lack of effort and thus an obvious underachievement in my a-level results, i only just got in, but still....i...

Good Library, Resonable Accomodation, ReziNet

Tutoring, Computing Services

The good bits; Coventry University has got some very good facilities when compared to other uni's, the library especially! Excellent resource for all kinds of books and media, with a 24 hour open access computer room located in the basement for those of you who wish to study/use the internet all...

“ Better than expected”

published 15/04/2006

Good facilities (in Ellen Terry Building)

No real sense of student-ness if not in halls

After a gap year spent changing my mind about my course, applying for several new courses, turning them down and refusing my original university place, I applied for music at Coventry through clearing. No audition, just a wander round with the head of music (which, I'm ashamed to say I did after...

I graduated from Coventry in 2002 and thought the university prepared me well for the future. My degree, Business Enterprise was a great course for those who were proactive and liked to put more things into practice rather than study theory for 3 years. I got lots of support from the Business...

“Coventry Uni”

published 26/03/2001

easy to get in to, lots to do

In the middle of Coventry

I graduated from Coventry University in 1997 and I have currently in my second year at Aston university. My time at Coventry was really good and it has a lot going for it. First thing that you have to do is get past the fact that it used to be a polytechnic. People tend to get put off by this...

dull town, need more shops,

Call me biased, but I attended Cov Uni for the past 3 years of my life. It wasn't my first choice but it soon became a very important part of my life. As with any other university, it's not what you study but the atmosphere and the people that you meet. There is a diverse range of cultures, from...

Plenty to do and plenty of part-time jobs

Halls or residence are expensive and poor value

Coventry University is not the most romantic or even attractive place to go to. The University is in the city itself and very close to the ringroad. But having said that I love it. It is a friendly place. Being at the heart of the City means it is easy to shop, find pubs, cinemas, theatres and...

Firstly this uni has the disadvantage that its in Coventry. Its located in the city centre surrounded by a ring road which is like a chocker around its neck. This means the sports facitities are either non existant or miles away. Academicaly it isnt much cop either being well down the league...
