Meet the Experts

The experts play a vital part in your time at university. From lecturers, to tutors, coaches and more, these are the people that will teach you, guide you and support you when you need them the most. It's important that you get to know them.

This is why we created Meet the Experts, a guide to some of our favourite members of staff at Coventry. In each video the expert will be put in the hot seat and given a series of questions about their career and life by a hard-hitting journalist - their own student! 

Keep checking back for more students putting the experts through their paces!


Thamu Dube

Thamu is a Media and Communications lecturer and is known for his passion for technology and his larger-than-life personality.

In the first episode of Meet the Experts, Thamu is faced with tough questions from his former student Joe. But did he do enough to catch the master of Apple products out?

You can catch Thamu on Twitter @thamudube, where you'll find his thoughts on the lastest gadget or app, as well as his opinions on the current performance of Liverpool FC.

I had a great time studying Media & Communications, and having staff members like Thamu really boosted my experience. It's like having a teacher, expert, colleague and friend all in one!
