Meet The Team Behind UnCOVered

Discover the team behind the official Coventry University student blog: UnCOVered!

Behind almost every blog is a team of social media obsessed, TV series binge-watching, immature (in all the right ways), self-defined ‘foodies’ – with keyboards and a dream. So cliché are we, that this pretty much sums up the UnCovered team. (Seriously – if you can bake it, fry it, roast it, microwave it, boil it, grill it or sauté it, we are interested.)

We’re here to give you the heads-up on the events and opportunities available at Coventry Uni, as well as exam and revision hacks, money saving tips, insights into student life and global travel, collections of films, TV and music we think you’ll like, and stuff about food. Obviously.

Updated almost daily, you’re sure to find something for you. Here’s a bit more about the team that brings you all of this:
