The new London campus for Coventry opens its doors for business
Tuesday 22 January 2013
Coventry University has officially opened its new London Campus (CULC).
At the launch earlier this month, which was attended by the Vice Chancellor of Coventry University, Professor Madeleine Atkins and the University Chancellor, Sir John Egan, CULC opened its doors to mark the start of a new learning opportunity for international students.
CULC will be offering a range of professionally-oriented courses including a portfolio of MBA programmes as well as the extremely popular Coventry MBA in International Engineering Management and a range of top-up undergraduate programmes.
Situated in the heart of London’s financial district, just 250 metres from Liverpool Street Station, CULC has already attracted international students from countries such as China, India, Nigeria and the Middle East and boasts state-of-the-art facilities that includes a unique fully simulated financial trading floor to enhance business teaching and learning at the campus.
Talent and expertise will be of paramount importance to the UK and other economies as the country strives to come out of the global economic downturn and in this context, it is crucial that students are able to secure courses that best meet their needs.
The CULC courses have been developed in consultation with business leaders and prospective MBA students. They draw on the long-standing success of Coventry in delivering key programmes with a strong vocational emphasis enhanced by the University’s excellent links with industry, and a focus on preparing students for successful futures.
Janet Hannah, Director of CULC said:
“CULC gives the international student the opportunity to learn about business and to study and work in one of the world’s leading financial markets, London. It is the ideal setting for international students to immerse themselves in both the academic and practical side of the business world. CULC is at the very heart of London’s financial district and is an exciting place to be.”
Coventry programmes are already delivered at a variety of locations in the UK and overseas through institutional collaborations and this development extends the commitment to enabling more individuals to take advantage of extremely popular Coventry courses.
CULC complements the current expansion plans at the Coventry campus where the University is spending £150m over the next two years.
Janet Hannah added:
“Employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship is a vital part of CULC’s success and the popular feature of the programmes that we deliver in London is that all the students will be offered real work experience opportunities.”
