This degree will keep you on your toes. The lecturers are never dull and allow lectures to me enjoyable. They cater to everyone's needs and have an open door policy which help students a lot. The degree itself teaches you from how to investigate a hard drive using tools the police use to how to get away with murder. As the degree is so innovative opportunities just land at your feet.

This course balances perfectly in depth aspects of both medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, providing clear career information and how to get there. This is along with the opportunity to stay on at the university and gain a masters in pharmacology and drug discovery, as well as plenty of PhD opportunities for those students willing to work for it.

All staff are available when they say they will be and only at the other end of an email, I have received an unbelievable level of support with absolutely everything I have done, whether that be personal, interview training, guidance with work I find difficult etc.

The course is set 50% each way roughly by coursework and exams, coursework including essays, lab reports and leading on to writing full scientific articles - potentially worthy of publication or conferences.

Final year also includes your own lab based project for your thesis, conducting your own research!

Teaching is lecture, workshop and lab based, along with an element of independent study which is up to you if you want to achieve those higher grades.The level of lab experience we gain at this university is of an extremely high standard and focuses around making you an attractive and employable graduate.

The course use to be very strong, it had structure and organisation. 

But then going into second year, the course continued to plummet. The activities provided to "help" us didn't really have much impact on our work. They aren't  a ten - twenty minute activity , they last near enough the whole day when they shouldn't. 

The teaching can be strong depending on the lecturer. One lecturer I praise hugely is Rob Tovey. He has structure, and keeps our knowledge up to date with current or trending lectures that are relevant to our module and learning. They really challenge you, and make you consider if you can apply the knowledge to your work, unlike the rest. 

We have waited for two months to receive module marks and another two for very poor feedback which wasn't actual feedback. The excuse of being under staffed is used a lot, and no action is taken. 

The one to one tutorials or group, are helpful. But maybe mixing the groups each week so we see fresh work and help other peers. I praise the course for this hugely. 

Overall, if you are expecting a great experience, I wouldn't get your hopes up. The university world has developed into a business. The course and the tutors just make you feel like a number, and providing they have ticked their boxes in what they have to do they are happy. It's a minimum, basically. 

I also don't recommend the place, Coventry it's self. Only benefit, it's close distance to Birmingham and cute villages. 

Strongly consider Coventry University as a whole. Great one to ones with tutors, but the rest just scraps on by.

This module is by far the most useful and interesting. The module leader always coes up with new information an ways to challenge and catch our attention.She has even asked for feedback and then acted accordingly.It is really useful to learn what other countries do especially in the business sectors.

This module is a mandatory module for everybody. This module has to be taken once every year.

This module in first year focuses mainly on developing academic skills. This includes learning how to correctly structure academic essays, presentations and how to correctly reference for assessments. Professors also give us tips on presenting.

To develop professional skills we were encouraged to join websites such as prospects and milkround so as to get us interested in internships from the start.

For second and third year we did the same thing but focused more on job searching and building soft skills for interviews, CV and cover letters.

I have really enjoyed this course so far. The lecturers always try their very best to find us great opportunities, which is very important especially for a course such as Event Management, where hands on experience is required. We have had the opportunity to go to many exciting places such as, Berlin, Amsterdam, China and South Africa as well as many different places around the UK. The course content is very good although contact hours are quite minimal, however if I needed more time with the lecturers to help me with any queries about my coursework or exams, I know all I would have to do is ask. Overall it is an excellent university who try very hard to offer their students the very best university experience.

I really enjoyed this course, i have no knowledge of supply chain management before.the lecturer was fun informative, and made the subject interesting yo can tell she had a real passion for supply chain management.the lectures were filed with videos and funny photos to keep the students alert and interested, it definitely worked with me as i am now thinking of pursuing a career in supply chain.we had weekly tests and two coursework. The tests pushed us to revise and go over everything we had learned in the lecture so we do not leave it to last minute. i think that was a brilliant idea, in the end i got a 1st in this course so i am quite happy. One of the coursework we had to do, was made a supply chain that we are familiar with lean, i chose waitressing in a restaurant, this helped me to see supply chain in my daily life and make it more useful.we received a free supply chain management book with this course.i would definitely recommend this module if you decide to pursue Business Management.

Overall, I really enjoyed this module because it sparked my interest in Finite Element Analysis, which landed me a placement in this area.The module was divided into 2 parts: in the first term, it was focused on mathematics and partial differential equations, which are the basis of FEA. In the second term, the focus was on the basics of FEA and how it works, combined with an introduction to FEA software.What I really liked about this module was the module content and the forms of assessment: in the first term we had online quizzes, while in the second one, we had an exam.What I disliked about this module was that the second term module content was basic and, at times, repetitive. I came to realise this during my placement year, where just knowing what FEA does in basic terms is not enough. There is a lot more to it and although the continuation of the FEA module can be taken in 3rd year, where it gets more complex, I believe there should at least be an introduction to how FEA software works in 2nd year.

Even if this module is not very well organised, we have the opportunity to work in the media industry and find out what we really want to do in the future.

This module is a very interesting one as you have so many things to talk about , you learn so much about all of types of violence and you learn to also question they mature of violence ! The assessment requires a 3000 thousand words essay and this is a lot when after two days you have to submit your dissertation
