For sports fans, thousands of visitors gather for major sporting events including Rugby Union’s Heineken Cup, the World Snooker Championship and the Women’s Football FA Cup Final.

Fancy a day out of the city? Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon is only 30 minutes away by car, there's also regular bus services that link Coventry to Stratford, Royal Leamington Spa and the castles of Warwick and Kenilworth.

There are many places of interest to visit while you are a student here. Coventry’s central UK location means that London is only an hours' journey by train, in addition to this, Birmingham - the UK’s second largest city, is only a short 20 minutes away.

Our campus borders Eastbrookend Country Park, a beautiful expanse of greenery and lakes. Also nearby is the Wantz Boating Lake, sports grounds and supermarkets.

If it’s the city lifestyle you’re after then London has it. There are over 7000 bars and pubs, over 5000 restaurants and incredibly for one city, over 350 music venues! Living on a student budget can be hard, especially in a big city, however there’s plenty to do when you’re watching your bank balance, think coffee shops, exercise clubs or taking time out of your schedule to enjoy one of the many leafy parks.
