Your learning experiences

91% of our postgraduate students are in employment or further study six months after graduating (DLHE survey, PGT UK, 2016/17) signalling our commitment to making our graduates as employable as possible. From first-class facilities to the professional experience opportunities embedded into many of our courses, we strive to provide an inspiring, engaging learning experience to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be.

Face-to-face teaching

We strive to provide as much face-to-face teaching as possible*, as well as giving you access to all the on-campus facilities required to successfully complete your studies.

Many of our teaching staff have postgraduate qualifications and/or industry experience, and act as mentors and advisors to help you gain a deeper understanding of your subject.

Online learning

To support your on-campus learning, we have committed to an online mobile-first teaching and learning setup that puts community and conversation at its core. You will have full access to Aula, our online learning platform, to help support your on-campus studies. Aula fosters learning communities and a sense of belonging, while encouraging you to work in a connected and collaborative manner.

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.

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.

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.

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.
