International Students – Top Tips on How to Apply to Study at Coventry University

Engineering student Naza gives top tips on how to apply to study at Coventry University if you live abroad. This is the process Naza went through when she was in Nigeria.


Applying to Coventry University is a quick and straightforward process and you could receive a response within two days! The university has start dates in May, September and January so there is no pressure to apply and you can pick a date that is comfortable for you.

You can apply by filling out the online application form, downloading your application form and returning it via email or by applying through one of the many local offices in Nigeria.

Information required

Before the application is considered by the International Office, you will need to provide:

  • your school transcripts
  • copies of your degrees
  • diplomas or certificates
  • one academic reference
  • an English language test score
  • your personal statement
  • a copy of your bio data page from your current passport

Under 18?

As the university facilities are intended for use by over 18’s your parents/legal guardians have to ensure that you understand and comply with arrangements for younger students. You will need to provide a consent form which you can download from the Coventry University website. This must be completed by your parents/legal guardians and can be submitted as part of your application process to the International Office.

A list of the courses are available for each start date and their fees are available on the university’s website as well as an International Virtual Open Day which gives you access to all the information you would find at an actual Open Day, a tour around campus and the full experience from the comfort of your home.
