In Samridhi's Words
Samridhi is a postgraduate student studying Painting MA. Before Samridhi got here she was very scared and nervous, but when she arrived in Coventry she realised she had definitely made the right choice.
When I first came here I was worried about making friends but as I got to know people in my lectures, I realised people were quite friendly. I was scared but I wanted to be independent and overall, living in Coventry has taught me a lot.
When I first arrived in Coventry I thought to myself: have I made the wrong decision? But after making friends and receiving great support from my lecturers I realised I definitely made the right choice.
Advice I’d give to people in India who are thinking of studying in England is that if they want to come here they should come, because the way we are taught in Coventry is completely different to how we are taught in India and you get a global experience.
For me, it was a step ahead. The level of teaching here is great; they teach you in a way where they are concerned with your future and want to help you with your career after you finish your degree – not all universities teach you in this way.
One of the things that I love about my course is that we get to showcase our work at exhibitions. A few months ago, I met different people and got to see how people react to my work, what they like, what they don’t like and I realised that their opinions are different to opinions of people in India.
So, it was good to see a different perspective of my work. I got lots of feedback that I’d not taken into consideration before – this enabled me to create an identity of my own.
The visa application process is quite easy. I’d advise others who are applying to be genuine with their answers. But the English exam can take a lot of time, so you do need to prepare in advance. I didn’t pass straight away, even though my English isn’t that bad. This was quite frustrating because I wanted to start my course in September - this is why I think it's important to prepare well in advance.
I chose to study at Coventry University because when I researched into the course I realised it is exactly what I want from my Master’s Degree, and they gave me the option to start my course in January which not every university does.

A big difference between England and India is that shops close earlier in England than in India, people wake up earlier and sleep earlier. I will definitely be taking this way of living back to my country with me.
The Indian food in England tastes similar to the Indian food in India.
Coventry is a multicultural city therefore I feel comfortable here. Also, I don’t miss India too much because I get to speak to my family on Skype and via Lycamobile whenever I want to and also via social media.
I love everything about England, from the weather to my university halls. In India, I didn’t get to see the different seasons so it’s quite interesting to see the weather changing, I like the English breakfast and I like the people here!
