Staff support has been phenomenal
Staff support during my study has been phenomenal. I have built a beautiful relationship with my Course Director Dr. Andrew Tickle and all my Lecturers, and this has helped at times when I’ve felt overwhelmed.
For those who are considering studying at Coventry University, my advice would be by all means come, Coventry University is a brilliant institution with numerous opportunities. Also, the lecturers here are very brilliant and attentive to students’ requests.
The truth is coming from another country is not easy, there are differences in culture, ways of teaching, WEATHER and general ideologies, but the UK is a diverse community with people from all over the world. So while you might have worries, I would advise you take a beautiful leap of faith and come here. It’s not as scary as it seems to change countries and it’s worth it.
The first couple of days were nerve-racking, far away from my father in a country where I had no one to help me. It was a massive challenge and I had a massive culture shock! However, I met an amazing young lady who helped me to network and meet people and helped me to get into leadership roles on campus. As I started to get more engaged with life here, the less worried I became of my change in environment. Slowly now, I feel very English!
