The Add+Vantage Scheme. As a fresher you will hear a lot about it, how it is the star of the Coventry University syllabus, how it can improve your diploma in ways other universities can’t, how it can help you enhance your employability and so on. Very true, the scheme is important and it just adds more skills to what you gain through your degree. The scheme has been regarded as one of the biggest initiatives in the UK and lets students choose from over 60 courses (wow!!) and involves the University, the city and the various companies around Coventry. I know it is hard to choose your Add+Vantage when you have so many options. What is it that you are looking for? What would be best for you? Well, you don’t have to choose something related to your course, that is the beauty of it. You can go for something that can help you on your career path, something that you find interesting or something that you want to explore. For example, I’m studying Spanish and English and I have taken as an Add+Vantage module Project Management. It has nothing to do with my course, but I think that together with my language skills it will help me gain a job as a project manager.
Welcome to Coventry University! You’re almost there, uni is about to start. The first month is always overwhelming, there is so much to take in, many new places and people, responsibilities and rules you need to know and follow. Here are some tips on what to expect during your first month of university.
Thinking of what to pack for university is hard for all students, especially when you are travelling internationally and you have limited suitcase room and luggage allowance AND you don’t want to forget any essential items!
The important thing to take note of here is that you want to bring as little as possible. You can always purchase items in the UK, so you must remember to bring only what you need.
