Shama's story

Getting a job before you graduate

Shama is career-focused. One of the reasons she chose to study Applied Biosciences is to access the jobs in the industry.

CU Coventry have helped her balance her study around her part-time job as a school physics technician.

She loves her job and the bright eyes of kids as they learn from her experiments.

Alongside her degree, she runs her own jewellery and clothing business. Her products are quirky and are popular at the craft fairs she visits with her friends.

CU Coventry has helped me get more confidence. Studying one module at a time is a lot easier because you can focus all your attention. You’ve got six weeks to learn a module, so it’s easier to write a lab report.

It can work around your employer, offering part-time, Saturday and full-time courses.

I’m already making great strides in my career. I’ve been offered a chemistry technician position, even before I finish my degree.
