What is your favorite memory of Coventry?
I was lucky enough to start and finish with the same group of students, it was a pleasure to see my class mates grow and to have made life long friends. As well as Graduating in the most beautiful cathedral with my mum flying all the way from Australia to witness in her proud state.
What would you say to a student thinking of studying at here?
You have made the right choice, the Professors are great and the flexible study options and global campuses made Coventry the only choice. For me; the condensed study period by having the option to not take a break through the whole Masters meant it was over before I knew it.

Commit to it, go in with your whole heart, ask alot of questions and be determined to have your dissertation published in the library!
