Of their time at Coventry University they said; “ As a student at Coventry University, I had the full experience of all Coventry University has to offer. I was a Course Rep, International Officer Ambassador, Amnesty Society Member, Employability and Networking Society Member amongst other things. I did the Global Leaders Programme etc. I partook in International Office trips, Black History Month events etc. It was a rewarding and enriching experience. I ran in the Coventry University Students’ Union elections for the position of Vice President for Education and I won. I am on the Coventry University Board of Governors, a member of the Academic Affairs Committee, Quality in Learning and Teaching Committee (QuILT) and I am also a Trustee of Coventry University Students’ Union. This has enabled me to network with members of the Senior Leadership Team like the Vice Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and external governors. My experience at Coventry University gave me International exposure and perspective. The GLP workshops, LinkedIn learning and my sessions with the Talent Team helped equip and prepare me to for life post study.”
