Apollo's story
Student experience

Learning Italian turned into a career

Apollo has found new hobbies while studying his Policing degree. He enjoys his course. In particular, he likes that you look at more than just laws. You also learn about history and the political environment.

He also took a course with Linguae Mundi. Students can learn new languages with a big discount. Learning Italian gave him the chance to write for two websites on Italian football.

It’s also inspired him to apply for a Masters’ course. He wants to study journalism and become a sports writer.

I joined CU Coventry through Clearing because I didn’t do as well on my A Levels as I expected.

I saw Policing as a trustworthy degree. It’s really helped to keep my options open.

There aren’t end of year exams. It helps you learn because you use assignments to check you understand each topic. The small class sizes help you always speak to your tutor.
