Coventry University

Cons

What are the worst things about studying at your university?

2018

"There's not much to do in Coventry and the nightlife is just ok."
"The Jaguar rooms could be more modernised."
"Not all lectures are recorded yet."
"Some of the admin can be lengthy at times."
"I've had three teachers who didn't know their subjects and would have highly personal arguments with students over trivial matters. 31 of us complained about the conduct of one member of the teaching staff and the university ignored our complaint. We are being forced to take our complaints to the vice chancellor."

2016

"There's not much of a nightlife here."
"A lack of good local shops."
"There's only a couple of good clubs here."
"There aren't many attractions or things to do in the city."
"Odd timetabling means that there can be some very quiet points in term with very few lectures and seminars etc."
"Some of the assessment criteria can be quite vague."
"Some lecturers are of a high standard but others are not so good."
"Accommodation can be difficult to find. However, the university does help."
"Private student houses can be over a 30-minute walk away from the university campus depending on where you are located."
"There have been some problems with organisation making the academic year, which finishes earlier than many other universities, very busy from start to finish."
