Coventry University London is a very diverse university with an array of opportunities which solidified my amazing experience. Our lecturers provided us with real life scenarios to learn from, and took us on field trips which afforded us the opportunity to speak to HR professionals about their jobs. These experiences contributed to my motivation and left me wanting to work to the best of my ability.
