Chances are, if you’re studying a course outside of Coventry University’s School of Art & Design, you’re probably wondering what this #covdegreeshow business is all about? Find out here!
What is the #covdegreeshow?
Each year, Coventry University Art & Design undergrads get the chance to showcase their work to the general public in a live event, called The Degree Show. Featured courses include Fine Art & Illustration, Fashion, Media & Communication, Performing Arts and many more. The students have to organise, fund and promote the #covdegreeshow as part of their degree criteria – but the show is ultimately their big chance to exhibit their work to prospective employers. They can finally show everyone what their hard work from the last three years has built up to.
Why is the #covdegreeshow Important?
The degree show is Coventry’s opportunity to show the world what the next generation of creatives look like, and exactly what they are capable of. For final year students, the Degree Show also offers opportunities to network with professional clients. Many students have secured jobs, commissions and future clients as a direct result of the Degree show.
When is the #covdegreeshow?
With so many people taking part and so many things to see, the Degree Show actually takes place over the whole of May, with a little bit of April and June included! Don’t worry, we’ll be keeping you updated right here on UnCOVered. We will be sharing sneak previews of what you can expect, and tell you when and where to find it! Each course will exhibit across a wide range of dates so there’s plenty of opportunities for you to come down and see what the students have been up to! There will even be live-streams for those of you not able to make it to Campus!
Where is #covdegreeshow?
