Dietetics BSc (Hons)

What I would highlight: My university experience has been good so far. The university staff were happy to help me change course even though I was moving across faculties from Automotive Engineering to English and Creative Writing. And I was able to do this several weeks into my original course which meant I didn't have to make it through my first year on a course I didn't enjoy before being able to change courses. The university offers many small-scale events such as webinars, group sessions and one to one workshops on employability and workplace skills ranging from presentation skills to CV writing to effective job searching. They also run large scale events like employability fairs that are specific to faculties so each faculty gets a chance to promote relevant employers and invite them in to talk to students. The course allows us to have a high degree of creative freedom in some of our modules whilst still maintaining a stricter and more academic approach in others. This allows us to explore our ideas in our university work without sacrificing the academic side of the experience meaning that we will be well prepared no matter what we go on to do after completing our undergraduate degrees.

What I would highlight: I don't think there could be a better university for me. Coventry university is a diverse place full of people from all over the world. It provides opportunity to learn about other cultures and being everyone together. A sense of unity. Furthermore, it provides fantastic opportunities to better yourself in preparation for your career. Leadership and language programmes as well as many employability workshops. Also the lecturers are so passionate, encouraging, supportive and dedicated that it gives you the best possible chance of doing your absolute best. Our lecturers are very passionate about what they teach and many of them have working experience which provides insight into how we can apply our knowledge in a real job role. They go out of their way to find interesting and unique examples rather than easy general case studies. They are always available to meet and respond to email very quickly. Furthermore their coursework support is outstanding. They really want us to do our best on will put aside their own time to achieve this.

What I would highlight: My experience so far has been really good. I studied my foundation year in Loughborough and I must say, Coventry is so much more inviting. You really feel supported, and it's much more close knit. Coventry is very good at increasing employability. There are a lot of placement and job fairs, and the careers department are very useful. I recently had a meeting to talk about my placement interview and it was very useful. They also do not expect you to pay for your placement year, which is very handy as some universities will still expect your tuition fees.The lecturers are all very approachable and try to make the lectures as interesting as possible. They are always available to speak to you about anything you might need, and are willing to take time out of their own day to help. The facilities are excellent. I am in the new engineering building and it's amazing. They have everything you could possibly need, and it's very modern and clean. The support is amazing. We have something called a Theta room, where lecturers are obliged to go and sit for at least 3 hours a week to help anyone that goes along. We also have a maths support center where you can go along and ask anything to do with maths. On top of that, the lecturers are usually very quick to answer emails, and are happy to help.

What I would highlight: Coventry is a good place to study and I would recommend it to anyone. I like that lecturers and other members of staff can help us with anything and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in take part, for example societies, job fairs and even working at the university. As for the university’s facilities, I would say they are good, I always work good at the library and have had no problems at all with noises, space, and so on.

What I would highlight: My personal university experience has been great so far. Coventry's facilities are excellent and very helpful. The different classes and lecturers have all the equipment and facilities. The guys working for the Students Union is very helpful. I never got a chance to participate in the union and I don't know much about it. Facililties are really good specially in the hub. And it is also equipped with all the modern technology. A superb experience! Hesitate no more and choose Coventry!

— Coventry University (@covcampus) February 9, 2015 OVERVIEW

This International Law course runs in 2016/17.

From international business transactions to matters relating to
war and peace and state responsibility, this course aims to equip you with an understanding and appreciation of the legal issues that arise in our globalised world.


This course is designed to put you in a stronger position for careers within the field of international law, international business or within international organisations such as the United Nations (UN).

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • a course designed to meet the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board;
  • the opportunity to volunteer in our Legal Advice Clinic, Business, Law and Enterprise Clinic or Employment Law Clinic and handle cases for real clients. Here you will be supervised by staff with many years experience in practice;
  • experienced teaching staff who bring professional or research expertise into their teaching;
  • support in applying for a work placement, which is not only a fantastic experience but will also give you an edge when applying for jobs;
  • the option to spend a year studying overseas, which provides you with an international experience;
  • regular guest lectures from employers who specialise in different areas of the law, giving you the opportunity to network with people already in the profession;
  • a dedicated moot room, or mock court, where you will have the opportunity to develop your advocacy skills by presenting legal issues or problems against an opposing counsel and before a judge;
  • the opportunity to present a paper at our Law Student Conference with the possibility of publication in the Coventry Law Journal.


All qualifying law degrees are required to cover the foundations of legal knowledge. These subjects are Contract Law, Tort Law, Criminal Law, Law of the European Union, Constitutional and Administrative Law, Property Law, and Equity and Trusts, as well as the English Legal System.

Your specialist areas of study will ensure that you have the knowledge and skills employers expect of an international law graduate. You will study specialist international law subjects such as: Comparative Law, Public International Law, International Commercial Law, International Criminal Law, and Human Rights.


Topics are normally delivered through large group lectures and seminars of 15 students. Seminars are interactive and many involve hypothetical problem questions, case studies and the analysis of more theoretical issues. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress and will be available for advice.

If you are interested in part-time study (which is taught during the day) please contact the Part-time Admissions team on +44 (0) 24 7765 4321 or email part-time.uni@coventry.ac.uk for further information, but please note that not all courses have a part-time option.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 65%; coursework, tests, essays 20%; practical or project work 5%; group work etc. 5%; presentations, posters etc. 5%


In a typical week you will normally have up to 14 hours of teaching contact with staff. In addition, you can meet with your personal tutor or lecturing staff during published “office hours sessions”. These sessions are bookable and allow you to discuss problems or help you investigate further topics that interested you in the lecture. An average teaching week would normally break down as follows:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1 hour of tutorials each week

Medium group teaching: 4 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week

Large group teaching: 9 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 25 hours each week studying and revising in your own time – including some guided study using handouts, online activities, etc.
