    It's getting to the time where those of you in sixth form will be looking at applying to different universities, and if you're in this forum, then you're likely interested in Coventry as an option! :gah:

    If you have any questions about the university, or about life in the city, then feel free to post your questions here, and myself or another student here will try and answer

    For many of you already at the university, you'll be starting to get the swing of things now, which can often lead to questions or queries about how things go moving forward... so feel free to ask your questions here too :ahee:

    Hi Chongniki,
    Great to hear you're considering studying with us!
    Have you visited us for an Open Day yet? They give a really good opportunity for you to find out more about the course. You get to meet the team that will be teaching you, and current students on the course! They'll be happy to answer questions about anything from the course structure to the nightlife and accommodation, so it really is helpful if you attend.

    Hi, I am going to be studying this course in 2017 (unconditional offer that was firmly accepted). I've been to the applicant day and Coventry was amazing. I got to meet lectures and students that have been on the course and met some that I may see in 2017.

    The day was great as we got to actually use practical skills to either solve a problem, programme a robot, etc. I got to create a mobile phone app for iOS that actually worked on my phone! It was challenging but very exciting, There was support the whole way through and the lecturers talked us through many international opportunities (that cost as little at £100!) and also what the course will entail for the whole duration. I would highly recommended this university and I hope to see you there!

    A lot of it will depend on how much you get involved, but I'd say make sure you get one near the uni for Freshers/Societies. Callice had a few events on from what I recall, but I didn't join in many, so can't comment much on them, I'm afraid

    I've lived in Coventry for 3 years now, and never had any issues with safety. As with anywhere, there will be nicer areas than others, but the city centre is nice, and most of the halls are around there, from what I know! Obviously confirm that before making any decisions though

    Hmm, I haven't heard anything personally, but I don't know if it's true or not, I'm afraid. Maybe follow up with your friends and see what's causing their concerns?

    Hi,I'm from Pakistan. Will be joining Coventry this September for Motorsports Engineering. Wanted to know, does Coventry allow students to pick a part time job? Also, whats the difference between Motorsports and Automotive Engineering? Is it true that Motorsports Engineering will close the gates of OEM Car Manufacturing companies like BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, Ferrari etc. Would it be wise to choose Motorsports or should I go for Automotive Engineering?.

    I don't believe the uni has any stance against part-time jobs, but I don't know if it's different for international students, so I'd recommend inquiring directly to the university if you're unsure!
