cosmopolitan magazine


It’s not everyday a university gets mentioned in a glossy (online) magazine, let alone a super-duper famous one! So we were extra-specially-excited to find a shout-out in the infamous Cosmopolitan magazine.

Yup, up there amongst the Cyrus’s and Jenner’s of the world, Coventry University has been plucked from obscurity …ok, sorry, a bit too X-factor-y there, to make this awesome list:

13 universities with WAY better perks than yours

Coventry University

The bad news first – this one’s for media students only, but it’s an awesome perk if that’s the course you choose to take. For the duration of your 3-year degree, Coventry will lend you a laptop, and upon successful completion of the course, it’s yours for the keeping. And we’re not talking any bog-standard £300 model, we’re talking a Macbook Pro…

(Look they even gave us an awesome gif!)

Thanks Cosmo!

That’s not our only amazing perk though, check out these blinders:

Our Add+vantage scheme 

With over 240 different courses to choose from, the Add+vantage scheme modules provide a whole range of work experience and career development activities which will broaden your knowledge, skills and qualifications – all for free!

Graduate employment

We’ve helped 83% of graduates find roles within leading companies such as JLR, Rolls Royce, IBM, JCB, Severn Trent Water, Bentley Motors and plenty more. Following the success of these modules, our Central Careers Service is introducing two more in partnership with Severn Trent Water and Enterprise Rent-A-Car in the next academic year.

Student support

Our Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) is the first university writing centre to be established in UK higher education. Staff at the centre can provide you with workshops on all aspects of academic writing, ensuring you are better prepared for lectures and assignments.

International experiences

No matter where you are from, you will still get an international experience at Coventry University. There are lots of opportunities to study, work, or volunteer abroad. Plus, many course include field trips, international projects and competitions.

Fantastic teaching quality

Up to 93% of Cov Uni students are satisfied with teaching at CU due to continuously developed courses, ongoing investments in research and the sound teaching environments. This means students can be assured that the knowledge and know-how they acquire is up-to-date and ready to apply in a real-world context.

Oh and just one other small thing…

Come to Coventry and you’ll be studying at the UNIVERSITY OF THE YEAR #NBD
