Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    Given that the CU is ranked decently in the university league tables, is it actually a good place to study business? Also, my friends in The UK have told me that coventry is not a very safe place to live in, is there any truth to that?

    I've been there for one year and so far the university has treated me very well. I've lived in the city too, and on the whole everyone seems friendly. Just like any city it will largely depend on which areas you spend your time in. All students seem to be friendly and helpful.

    The business department always seems busy (at least from the outside), and the university is spending a LOT of money on improving and expanding. CU seems to want to move up the rankings as much as possible rather than just being happy with 15th place.

    Aside from the University spending money on itself, the local council seems to be spending a lot on developing the city centre and Coventry as a whole. In the six months I spent there I've seen derelict buildings be demolished as new go up, whole plazas renovated, and much other improvement go on in the city.
