How would you describe your experience at Coventry University?
Studying at Coventry University was a very exciting experience for me, it helped me to learn a language, British Culture, also looks very good on my resume. Many companies today want employees who speak a second language, or have experienced living or working in another Country.

How did studying at Coventry University enhance your career?
Studying at Coventry University helped to provide an opportunity to develop my business. I received a structured business and management education which helped me to discover myself deeply in my current career. My alumni friends can always give valuable advice and useful resources when I face challenges.
How did you find living in Coventry?
Personally, I feel the life in Coventry is more peaceful. Compared to other cities in UK, it helps Chinese students focus on themselves more easily and naturally. However, as a former Chinese overseas student, I know it is hard to live on your own, especially in a quite an unknown environment. Therefore, I highly recommend that you never stop practicing your English and communicating with others. I believe fluent English communication skills would support yourself in order to build a more amazing life in Coventry. Please treasure your friendship with anyone, no matter where they come from. I am sure once you find the balance of your new life in Coventry, you will be proud to be one of us.
