EXTREMELY POOR - do not pay money to go here, you are better off at home learning by yourself. It is so terrible I hardly have words to describe it. I have never studied in a place with such little interest in academia and learning, the only interest is money. The whole thing is a joke and shouldn't be considered a University at all.
Little to no lecture material, teaching is some of the worst ever experienced, the current lecturer thinks it's appropriate to be rude to students and complaints are ignored,.
No such thing
Very poor facilities, the new building seems to have been built with the purpose of marketing rather than teaching. Classrooms are no longer private and lessons are conducted in open plan areas which makes it very difficult to concentrate.
haven't been told they even exist
no support, the attitude of the Uni is to blame everything on the students, the management are all hiding the mess under the carpet. It's worse than terrible
So far, so good
Quick and detailed
Busy and lively
It is definitely challenging before all.It has learnt me a lot so far. However it can be hard at times and you need to work mainly with yourself for overcoming the obstacles.
They make job fairs,send emails every week for available positions from our Work and employability team.The team is always helpful and if you go they can give you an appointment about helping you writing your cv,cover letter or to prepare you for real life interviews.
We have 20 hours of lectures a week which is more than the usual standart of 16 weeks. Lectures are mon-friday for 4 hours but during this hours it is a mix between lecture and activities.In general most of the things are covered and explained in class. Also the tutors are really helpful and supportive.
They do lots of activities and societies. It is nice.
It is very nice,modern house with good value for money.Not too cheap or too expensive.However,bills are not included and sometimes it is hard to measure all the costs for the house.
I am very pleased with the facilities provided.
The city is nice in general,however sometimes a little bit depressing and dull. What I like is that the prices are good here and there are not that much entertainments in comparisson with London for example.So you can concentrate on studying.Bad side is that if you are looking for a part-time job it could be really difficult.
It is interesting and engaging.
Excellent. Tutors always give feedback and are ready to explain you the things or have a look on your assignment before submiting,tell you what you can improve and so on.
Coventry University College students have very restricted access to university resources. Students are unable to access computers, access the student union building, and borrow books from the library. CUC students usually feel very excluded from university life.
Amazing! It's been a big cultural change for me, since I am from India. It has changed my perspective and motivates me everyday to get further and further ahead in life.
Here at CUC, we have a dedicated team for Careers and Employability, that help us complete and maintain our resumes, and also help us look for opportunities that are suitable for our course.
The small classrooms, teacher-student ratio is very high, and each student gets a lot of personal attention. I really enjoy that we study one module at a time, instead of studying 4-8 classes at once.
I really like the concept of the student union, how they've been making changes in the system. I am a part of the CUSU, as a student course rep and we've passed motions such as 24x7 Library Timings, etc.
I have lived in university accommodation for my first year, after which I moved into private housing. I honestly feel that students should stay in halls for their first year, in order to make new friends.
I would say they are improving over time, and have shown a lot of promise on what comes next.
Very student-friendly town. A lot of clubs, restaurants, activities that students can do, and never be bored.
Fun! Societies are really great, since they help us socialise and pick up on interests such as music and sports and collaborate with like minded people.
Very good support for studies, English, mathematics, and also personal and accommodation related problems.
It's been alright academically speaking but not as much as in the social aspect. I wish there were more social activities for students apart from parties. It would help to get a well rounded uni experience.
There is an employability department who's sole purpose is to help students promote themselves better in the working world. There are also work placements especially for those interested in taking a gap year.
They're very attentive to students' needs
I'm not involved but they have been very active as far as I know.
It's a 3 bedroom house. Very comfortable but a bit on the pricey side compared to uni halls.
It's not as lively as I'd like.
It's very good all round.
My university experience has been phenomenal. Meeting amazing people and interacting with lecturers who motivate and push you to do better has made my experience that bit better.
In CUC there is a Careers and Employability department who do their very possible best to provide excellent support to students who are seeking internships, placements or job opportunities. They also host a range of Career Fairs and events throughout the semester in which students get a chance to communicate directly with world class employers.
The support from lecturers.
The apartment I live in with my best friend is really nice and clean. We got it through a student letting agency called UNAC. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living environment is really comfortable and feels just like home. The apartment is filled with lots of other university students which adds to the experience. Overall I give my accommodation 4 stars
My overall university experience has been good, the course can be hard at times, by the tutors help out. the food at the university as good. The support team that I have dealt with have helped me.
Uni I feel will increase my emplotability, by giving me the information that is needed to do the job that I what to do, it also helps me with other skills that are needed within the work place. also with the careers team they help us find part time work.
I feel the best thing about the course is that the tutors are all trained in the field, and they have a good in sight into the day to day running of the job. Also with this course you are in 5 days a week and morning or afternoon.
I don't know much about the student union, because there isn't much information about it.
The accommodation that I have lived in, is good. The housing are big and the some of the rooms are big however some of the houses can be a little run down. Most of the landlords help out and fix any issues but it can take time.
The university facilities are good, i feel that there could be some changes to make them better.
City life is great there are lots of things you can do within Coventry.
I don't know about the clubs and societies because I am not part of any.
The support is great, both academic and personal. if there is any issues there is a great team that work together to make sure that the issue it dealt with, or if they cant they know all the information of the people you needed to go see.
Coventry University college is part of Coventry Uni...so your degree is awarded to you by Coventry Uni but you're taught by CUC. I'm doing the biological and chemical science course and so far so good. The course itself is interesting and it isn't as hard as i thought it would be (maybe not challenging enough?). The lecturers, tutors, lab technicians are all amazing. They are so helpful and supportive and the teaching is exellent. Marking assignments and giving feedback is on point and communication in general with staff is exellent. Resources aren't that great but its by no means terrible. There are several IT rooms and laptops that can be on loan. Library is so small theres hardly anything in there though...so you'd have to find books elsewhere. We don't move around much...CUC is all in just one building as far as i know. Four floors of labs, seminar rooms, lecture rooms, IT rooms, the LRC and the canteen(bleurgh). I don't even know if CUC has a student union but if it does, its nothing like the Cov uni one (which is great). One of the things I like about CUC (and cov uni) is that its in the city centre which means everything is nearby. Loads of food places, shops and stuff everywhere. Unlike birmingham where I'm from, its pretty quiet here so you don't have to rub elbows with anyone or stand in ques(sp?).
I Don't really know what i can do with this degree. Theres no careers advice service as far as i know.
Lectures are really good. Its sort of like back in school because the number of people is much much smaller than the average. My course has the largest no. Of people (50ish). You get alot of help and guidance as a result.
Haven't seen it but the student union is ok apparently.
Not applicable as i live at home. However commuting costs me £250 for 4 months (bus and train) from Birmingham to Cov.
Its sooo tiny here. I thought my course was taught by COVENTRY uni but its CUC which is a whole different thing apparently. Had i known that i would've never applied. The resources and facilities are so limited :'( E.g. went to get this specific book my lecture recommended. Couldn't find it in the CUC library and so the librarian told me to check out Coventry uni library. They had loads of copies! Am i happy? No, cuz they wouldnt let me take it out since i'm not strictly Cov uni student arghhh. The facilities in Cov uni are great, too bad they won't let us CUC students use them even though they're constantly telling us otherwise.
Pretty nice i guess. Its bang in the middle of the city centre.
Haven't gotten round to that yet
They are pretty supportive. I guess it has alot to do with it being so small...they can take care of their students better. Sometimes i feel like i'm back in 6th form o_0
