Reviews on this course

What I would highlight: The University of Coventry provided lots of professional opportunities, industry standard video equipment and good general support. The modules were usually practical which I enjoyed. My experience has been great so far. As for the staff there they were very helpful with me when I was getting my minibus liscence through the university. Throughout university I captained the snowsports team and would have to deal with the SU staff regularly. They were very helpful and would always do every thing they could to help the team. Nothing stands out other than the volunteering fair where they offer lots of community based activities for students to boost their cv and give back to the community.

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.

Mechanical Engineering MSc

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.

This Media Production course runs in 2016/17.

In a constantly-changing, “24/7” multi-media landscape, anyone with a smartphone can make media. Our exciting course keeps you up-to-date with these changes and helps you
to develop the skills that you need to give you the edge in an increasingly competitive graduate market.


On our Media Production course you will be provided with the tools you need to learn how to become a media professional. You will use a range of media to create work that is innovative, inspired and challenging and will discover how to get that work noticed.

From the outset, we aim to develop your technical and creative abilities, giving you a thorough grounding in current and emerging media technologies, ways of working and contemporary professional practice.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • access to industry-standard professional equipment via our Media Loan Shop;
  • teaching staff who are all practitioners or researchers with active profiles in established and emerging ways of working and leading scholarship in their fields;
  • your own high-end laptop with the latest industry- standard production software, enabling you to benefit from mobile working and learning with 24/7 access (terms and conditions apply);
  • dedicated and flexible creative learning environments designed for the future;
  • the course’s dedicated media spaces, edit suites and industry-focused radio, photography and television studios;
  • links with a wide variety of employers, some established by our own graduates who now work in the media and cultural industries;
  • help applying for professional experience, placement opportunities and live professional projects: e.g. Regional BBC, Creative City, Rolls-Royce, BBC3;
  • the experience of a globalised curriculum: last year students participated in projects in France, Spain, Prague, China and many other locations.


In short you will learn to tell interesting stories and get your stories out to the largest possible audience.
So, in year one, you will cover the core themes of: Key Concepts in Media and Communication, Developing Meaning in Media Production, Creating Impact in Producing Media and Developing Narratives.

In year two, you will work individually and in small production teams and start to specialise in areas such as: Documentary Production, Formats Production, Sound and Music in the Digital World, Experimental Narrative, Short Film Production or Transcultural Film.

In your final year, you will work on your own final major project and develop your own professional practice portfolio that you can use when looking for work
after graduation.

In all three years, you will have the opportunity to take part in international trips where you will be able to develop your knowledge and skills through the production of individual and group media projects.


Your course will be based on a series of lectures, with associated seminars and workshop practical classes. Media Production is delivered though project-based ‘hands-on’ learning, with a great emphasis on location work, live projects and practice activities, all with on- going feedback. Your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice throughout the course.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: coursework, tests, essays 20%; practical or project work 70%; presentations, posters etc.10%.

A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.


In a typical teaching week you will have up to 15 contact hours of study (classroom, online etc) and this will break down as:

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

Medium group teaching: 12 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week

Large group teaching: 2 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 20+ hours of studying and revising in your own time each week
