Enoh Daisy Akpabio

I chose Coventry University for two primary reasons: the first was because it was one of the few universities which offered an MSc in International Business and secondly because of the Global Leaders Programme which provided an extra-curricular activity that is competitive globally.

Ben Pollard

The one piece of advice I would give to both undergraduates and postgraduates would be to take advantage of all of the opportunities offered to you by the university as they can help greatly in post-university life. The opportunity to undertake a 3 month work placement during the latter part of the programme enabled me to secure valuable experience and time working within the sector which I feel has benefitted me greatly in securing the vital first job in such a competitive sports industry.

Rigun K Gunavardhanan

When I speak exclusively about my course, the vast heritage which Coventry holds for automotive design is a key factor that gave me such a rich experience. We had numerous alumni from Coventry University coming down to give us new insights and share their experiences. We also had big names in the auto-industry sponsoring our classroom projects too.

Samuel Akpadija

I chose this course because of its diversity across both Engineering and Business related courses. Together with doing the GLP it has really widened my knowledge and created a lot of opportunities for me with regards to my career.

I have benefited greatly from Coventry University with respect to both academic and social activities. If I decide to further my education by doing a PhD, I would most likely want to do it in Coventry University.

Helen Patterson

When I first enquired about the course I spoke to the Course Director, Darren Awang. Darren was so supportive and enthusiastic that I knew I was making the right decision. The teaching staff are always available when you need them and they seem to understand the pressures on part-time professional students.
