Few part time opportunities mainly to be uni ambassadors. Also an online site to look for jobs placement on the uni site.
Good value food and drink in the city centre. The shops on site are expensive.
Travel is fine but walking is better, as everything is close; buildings, town, most student halls, train station. Buses are the usual prices, about 1.70 to uni from the train station.
If your travelling by train to go to Coventry uni. It gets boring and annoying sometimes travelling so far. You have to be dedicated to come and get the most out of it.
Ask tutors questions, and lecturers. When you finish your assignment (always finish 5 days early atleast), ask more questions on how to gain more marks, talk over ideas and about the structure of your work. If you don't then you lose out on knowing more. I felt my course lacked a lot and only on THE DAY on moodle did everyone ask stuff that were quite useful and we got answers.But if u had already sent in your work it was annoying.
The tuition cost is now about 7k, so use the resources available and teacher help/drop in service to get the most out of your education (you are paying for it).
