Our international students tell us why they were proud to be part of the CU family..
“My name is Adedoyin, I am a second year student and I am currently doing my placement year with a company called Cambridge Scientific Solutions. I got to know about this placement through the help of the Employability and Placement Unit (EPU) at the University. I am so thankful for this opportunity and the help I received from the EPU, and it is why one of the reasons why I am proud to be a Coventry University student.
Without the help and support from the University or their connections with top employers and organisations, I would not have been able to get this amazing placement. I am proud to be studying in a modern University like Coventry.”

“Coventry University is more than just a University, it is a diversified institution where both teacher and student play very relevant roles, I am a part of a big global family. The University makes up most of the vibrancy of the city, so as a student I feel very much connected to the city.”
“Coventry University is number one modern University, so I feel a sense of sophistication being part of it. For the past four years we have continued to rise in rank on the league table. Who wouldn’t want to be part of an institution that grows and advances forward?”

“I’m proud to be a Coventry University student because, as an international student, I have had so much support from my tutors and the University. Studying at Coventry University has a great experience for my self-improvement and has helped me explore my vision. Coventry University gave me a lot of support as I transformed from a student to an employable person.”

“Studying at the University seemed a challenge because of the new faces, new environment and new knowledge. Luckily, tutors here are really nice and professional. They are so proactive with providing support to all students, such as regular personal tutor meetings and organising extra lessons to cover difficult topics.”
“As an international student, I felt lost when I first started my course here due to the language barrier. My teaching staff helped me a lot to deal with my difficulties. For example, when I was in year 1, they taught me a lot of techniques to memorise the complicated names and positions of each single muscle in the body. Thanks to the nice teachers here, I know I will develop good skills to become a health professional in the future.”
