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.

" Project Management MSc OVERVIEW

This course will provide opportunities for individuals to become successful leaders in the field of project management, addressing a range of complex project management issues using different international and organisational examples. Through a combination of taught modules, industry guest lectures and internship/dissertation project, students will have the opportunity to acquire both the technical and people skills required to become an effective project manager.

As part of the programme, students will also work towards obtaining PRINCE2 foundation qualification (an internationally used process based method for the effective management of projects).

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

The MSc Project Management focusses on developing students understanding of the management of projects at a strategic level. Students will therefore not only focus on the skills required to manage projects effectively, but will also understand the wider application of how projects deliver strategic change, and how they interface with different disciplines in organisations.

The programme is delivered by teaching staff who have had extensive professional industry experience in the management of projects both in the United Kingdom and across the globe. Case studies of successful and failed projects, industry speakers and interactive technologies will make the programme engaging and interesting for students who enrol on the programme.

In addition to taught modules, students have the opportunity to do a dissertation which matches specific career aspirations. Alternatively, students have the opportunity to undertake a company internship (subject to meeting specific criteria1) which provides the chance to apply skills and management theory in carrying out real projects for host organisations.

The course also offers a module on project management methodologies which can lead to the Prince2 foundation certificate in project management (subject to passing the required exam), used extensively by the UK Government and widely recognised in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.

Please note: Students will need to pass all Semester 1 modules and attend two compulsory employability skills workshops. After an interview with an internal panel of academics and formal presentation, successful students are selected by the host organisation.
