Study in the UK this January: find out why Coventry University is a popular choice for Nigerians


Nigerian students reveal what UK education is really like, as Coventry University welcomes applications from aspiring students across Nigeria to its January 2021 courses.

Ranked top 15 in The Guardian for five years running (Guardian University Guide 2016-2020), the university, despite these challenging times, has committed to providing an exceptional learning experience. Next year proves to be no different, as Coventry University, Coventry University London and Coventry University Online begin accepting applicants for over 200 undergraduate and postgraduate courses starting in January 2021.


From September 2020, approximately 40,000 students from courses across Coventry University campuses are using Aula, a mobile-first, interactive and engaging teaching and learning environment. Aula has strengthened the way Coventry have delivered teaching, with conversation and engagement at the heart of the blended learning experience. Currently, Coventry University students receive at least five hours of on-campus learning each week alongside Aula.

The university’s selection of 100% online degrees, via Coventry University Online, is also open to students this January. There are no fixed timetables, just the flexibility and support you need to study at a time and place that suits you.

Earlier this year, Coventry was named the UK number-one-provider for best online courses and 4th world-wide, ranked by MOOC in 2020. Continuing to flourish, the university is now celebrating their latest achievement for being the only UK university rated 5 stars in the QS Stars Online Learning category.


Coventry is the UK City of Culture
With an institution as highly prized as Coventry University, it comes as no surprise that Coventry holds the prestigious title of UK City of Culture 2021. Every four years, UK cities compete for the chance to hold a year of events and celebrations in a spectacular showcase of the creative arts. Students of 2021 could be immersed in a year of festivities and celebration of music, dance, theatre and more.


With events happening throughout the city and in the university, students can expect nothing but the extraordinary at Coventry University.

Wide range of courses available
The subjects taught at Coventry University range from business, finance, and law, to nursing and medical sciences, engineering, computing and oil and gas, all of which are taught in modern facilities with access to industry-grade software and equipment. Many postgraduate options also offer extended work placement opportunities.


Funmini Aluko, a law student at Coventry University, said: “ My placement at a law firm has given me the insight into what I would expect from my career after graduating, taught me how to speak to clients professionally, ways of communicating and, overall, given me that push towards achieving my career goals.

“Coventry has exceeded my expectations. I have learned a lot about myself by being independent. I have learned a lot of patience, how to study, research and communicate how I feel, make friends and, overall, become a better me.”

London: an iconic city for everyone
Coventry’s location in the centre of England means that it is just a one-hour train journey from the iconic capital city of London, where Coventry University London is located. Coventry’s London campus gives students the chance to live and study in the heart of the city’s financial district with a selection of business, finance and marketing courses.

The university puts employability at the centre of all of its degrees, providing thousands of students with direct links to industry and preparing them for a global career. At Coventry University’s London campus, this industry-ready attitude has never been clearer, with Coventry University ranking joint first for career prospects amongst modern UK universities in the Guardian University Guide 2021.

Ebiakpo Shantel Olodiama, a postgraduate student studying International Human Resource Management, said: “I chose to study with Coventry University for the opportunity to obtain an international degree from a university ranked as one of the top modern universities in the UK.


“I love how my course modules are relatable to real professional situations. I believe everything I have learned at Coventry University will serve as a positive catalyst in developing a thriving career.”
