Activity led learning
Activity led learning is about providing you with a motivating and rewarding learning experience that will help prepare you for professional working life. We do this by providing stimulating activities that engage and challenge, integrating the more traditional learning styles with student led discovery, complex problem-solving activities, and work-based learning.
All my lectures are recorded, whether they are in-person or online. It means you can go back if you didn’t quite get it the first time, or you can revisit old lectures if you need more information for an assignment. That hybrid use of technology will help a lot of students.Michael Chorlton, Biomedical Science MSc,Quoted August 2021
Professional experience opportunities
As employability is at the core of what we do, a growing number of our master’s courses at Coventry University and Coventry University London include a 'professional experience' or 'workplace experience' option. This option extends your study period to include time to put theory into practice in a professional setting.**
Academic and learning support
We understand how important it is to feel heard. Our student support services offer advice in various aspects of student life, including counselling services and spiritual support. If you need help in any area of your course, our tutors are happy to help, as well as our Library team, Centre for Academic Writing, and our Mathematics and Statistics Support Team, sigma.
We also offer you access to a student success coach from within the Student Engagement Team through a request or refer scheme. Your student success coach will listen, encourage, and help you get expert advice to achieve your educational goals.
A welcoming and affordable city
Rich in history and with a diverse population, Coventry is a top three student city and is in the top five for affordability (QS Best Student Cities 2023). Studying here won’t break the bank and with most first-year accommodation on or close to our city-centre campus, you’re always at the heart of the action.
I love the library the most. I spend the majority of my time there – I’m very productive, and I get a lot of work done there. And it’s an award-winning library. I love the architecture; it’s just beautiful, inside and out.Naeema Ghulam Hussian ,Occupational Psychology MSc, quoted August 2021
