Reviews on other courses at this centre

Geography BA (Hons)

S
Sam
4.0 26/06/2016
What I would highlight: This course has gone past my expectations because we studied thoroughly some topics which I am interested in. They also encouraged me to do more reading about poverty and the colonisation in Africa. Field trips were an amazing way of making new friends and developing skills which cannot be developed in a class. We have also developed critical thinking skills, which makes us distinctive and highly demand in the employment world.
What could be improved: Everything OK.

Charlotte
5.0 26/06/2016
What I would highlight: The staff were really approachable and friendly, that is why the environment was so cozy. I also made really good friends during my course. My dissertation was carried out in a very modern facility, where I deposed a pipe. I also worked during one year with a company. That experience is invaluable. Thanks to that and to the university, I was able to get my first job.
What could be improved: Nothing bad.

Computer Hardware and Software Engineering BEng (Hons)

Alexander
4.0 26/06/2016
What I would highlight: All universities offer either computer science or software engineering. But Coventry offers a combination of both into one degree: this is a really big advantage. It is very practical and there are many opportunities to progress into your career. Here we receive a lot of new applications and projects. For example, in my second year, I was assigned a project in which I had to develop a new app which navigated students and staff members through the campus. In two months I am travelling to Barcelona in order to work full time in Vistaprints.
What could be improved: No negative aspects.

Marius
5.0 26/06/2016
What I would highlight: I chose this course because I heard it is very good, I got a lot of hands-on experience and we get to use new technology in this field. Professors are amazing as they help us out with new techniques and work. In addition, I also did a placement in the BBC. It was only one month, but I gained a lot of experience and I was even promoted to assistant producer. I was also given one week work as a bonus.

Medical and Pharmacological Sciences BSc (Hons)

F
Fola
4.0 26/06/2016
What I would highlight: I am studying Medical Science and Pharmacological Sciences. It is a very interesting course and you can specialise and divert to any branch. Pharmacology is a great course to be in. I'd like to be a clinical research scientist and this idea came from many work placements I have done during summer. Last summer I worked with one of my lecturers and I was able to see her research on anticancer drugs.
What could be improved: Nothing.

International law regulates almost every aspect of state law and practice, whether in business, human rights or the environment, and also regulates the relationship between different states and governments.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

The LLM International Law programme offers a varied and stimulating range of mandatory and optional modules, enabling students to shape their course to their best advantage, with the option to include Public International Law, Human Rights, International Environmental Law and International Business Law.

If you choose this course you could benefit from:

  • an in-depth understanding and analysis of international law through the study of a range of contemporary modules in areas such as public international law, corporate governance, environmental law and international human rights law;
  • extensive guidance on research, study and writing skills together with research design and methods, in preparation for writing assessments and researching and submitting your dissertation;
  • the study of a range of contemporary international law modules to allow specialism in international diplomatic relations, human rights law, corporate governance and environmental law;
