A vibrant student community is at the heart of a great student experience.
As a postgraduate at Coventry University we know how important it is for the Students’ Union to represent your needs and interests. This is why we set up the Postgraduates’ Guild, so that you can access everything that is available to you (at the Students’ Union) with ease. You can get involved in many different departments such as Reps, Volunteering, Democracy, Societies and Sports. You can also get involved in Postgraduate specific social events.
This October we are hosting the Postgraduate and Mature Students’ Welcome Brunch. This is an opportunity for new and existing postgraduates to get to know each other in an informal setting. It is also open to family members and we will have a face painting stall for children who attend.
We will have social events aimed at Postgraduates’ throughout the year so make sure you keep checking the CUSU website for further details.
Having great course representation is really important if you want to get the most out of your studies!
Each year our student Reps solve over 750 course related issues across all faculties. You can be part of this success by joining on to be a student Rep, not only will you be part of the Reps community but you can add valuable leadership experience to your skillset.
You will have the opportunity to network with university staff and also receiving training in running formal meetings.

As well as the regular sports sessions we run for all students we also run postgraduate specific activities. For example we have a Postgraduate Yoga session on a weekday lunchtime and a Postgraduate Futsal session on a week day evening.
Joining a society is a great way to get to know other students with a similar interest to you. We have a huge variety of societies from academic societies to faith and cultural societies to mountaineering and special interests.
