Why did you decide to do a Masters at Coventry University?
I did look at other Universities, but the programme and modules on the course really attracted me. There was a wide range of modules to choose from, and some evening modules as well, which helped me fit in my part-time work.
Another big factor for me was the Merit Scholarship I received from Coventry University because I achieved a First Class degree. This together with the part-time work (as a student advocate in the faculty) has enabled me to finance this course.
Knowing the staff, and how helpful they are was also really important to me. They’ve helped me through my undergraduate course and they’ve now enabled me to build on that learning at a more advanced level on my masters. I have found the regular drop in sessions with academic staff really useful whenever I've needed some support, that is a valuable facility available to students.
I also know the University very well, and have witnessed the move to the new Engineering and Computing building.
