Coventry University London’s ranking was important in my decision to study here, as well as London itself as a city. It’s a business hub, and I’m a finance student, so that was a huge motivator. Coventry University London is ranked highly in the National Student Survey, and so that means students here are satisfied, which is something I was looking for.

I believe coming to university is a great experience. You can’t imagine in your mind how enriching it is - you must come here and experience studying, the London life and the university life. Every single person I meet here is so friendly, everyone here is willing to help and that’s the best thing about Coventry University London. Welcome Week was also phenomenal, everything was arranged for me or very well planned so I never felt lost or confused.

My lecturers have 10-15 years experience in the real world, and that is important for me personally, because they talk from experience. I’ve done a professional qualification before, and going into a profession like this, you need an experienced teacher.

London is a business hub, it’s one of the top destinations for international students. We have so many opportunities – the overall environment is amazing.
