Is anyone currently at Conventry University, or is going in September, or is thinking of going?

What do you study there?
What's the university like? Social Life?
Any other general comments would be ace. Thanks :biggrin:

There is a story about Coventry University however I am not sure if it is true.

Apparantly the original name they decided upon was going to be Coventry University of New Technology, until they realised what the acronym was going to be.

i've just finished 6th in cov, and have spent 6 years at school there. so i go out there quite a lot, basically id rather you than me. sorry if that sounds harsh. cov has all the usual places you find in other cities- litten tree, varsity, yatzees, weatherspoons etc, for night clubs its very limited there is a few-colisseum(coli) a **** holebut we always go there-cheap and nasty-cheese music, full of 14 year olds but u always have a great night, icon and diva they are joined together on weekights seperate on weekends standard night club music form rnb-hiphop to dance, jumpin jaks really nice bar good for a laugh the crowd is older though 25-40yr olds. and a new place just opened dogma really nice sorta place wouldnt look too outa place in london but more expensive.

if u want to go out somewhere a bit nicer then everyone goes of to leamington which is much better.

hope that helps
Do Cov uni students really go to Leamington to go clubbing?! Wow, seems a bit of a trek to go to Leam when you have Coventry on your doorstep.

i do, although i'm a mere yr 13. cov's ok, occasionally, the pubbing's alright at least and ikon's always a good night whenever we go, but usually it's leam. not too much of a trek, blag a taxi for a tenner and apparently that new unibus is running well late these days?

the only good thing about coventry is its proximity to birmingham, nightlife and shopping there are top.

I've heard the Uni itself is awesome and when i went, it looked fab and ppl were so friendly but apparently the worst thing about Cov is the nightlife but I come from a small town where the nightlife isnt very good either so I wouldnt be missing out on much

Im not sure to be honest...but im going to be in a similar situation, as im from Essex. I think most people will be as well though surely? x
Cool, I think im going to coventry...Its my firm choice but who knows. Im staying in singer halls too. It seemed ok when I visited. It had a nice feel to it. Wished Id read these forums first though. The nightlife sounds like a bit of a disappointment.

Yeh, when i read some negative things i was slightly apprehensive and worried i had made the wrong choice. Although, i found this which has reassured me quite a bit!

Then again, think about it. When you're looking at universities, the main reason probably shouldnt be the night life. For example I'll be on a pretty tight budget and dont think I'll be hanging out at clubs and bars too much. And besides, it's a fairly large city so I'm sure there will be enough to do.
yep, see you there buddy
