Coventry was voted the UK’s City of Culture for 2021 and a host city for the Commonwealth Games 2022. Coventry is a diverse, accessible and culturally rich destination home to 50,000 students.
With a thriving nightlife, award-winning restaurants and a lively social scene, it’s easy to see why Coventry is one of the top 5 student cities in the UK.
Just one hour from London by train, and 20 minutes from Birmingham, it’s a fantastic central location to be interlinked with the rest of the UK and beyond. Coventry is a popular shopping destination with students of Coventry University.
FarGo Village is the home of independent businesses in the area and where you can discover over 40 boutique shops and restaurants. Not only that, the venue holds a market or event every weekend, making for an ideal day out with your new-found uni friends.
Living at Vita Student in Coventry means the historic city of Warwick is also just on your doorstep, so why not pay a visit to the impressive Warwick Castle.
It represents so much of the UK’s history and culture – and was present even in the eras of William Shakespeare and Phillip Larkin. Transport back in time to Olde England as you walk through Warwick’s cobbled streets filled with wonky wooden houses.
Every year, Warwick Castle hosts the traditional folk festival – an unmissable event if you’re new to the city. Tap your toes to the strong beats of Folk music and get lost in the voices of local poets inside the castle walls.
This isn’t the only festival worth attending in Warwick, though. There are events to look forward to year-round, including the Thai festival, with amazing music and food, and appearances from dancers and Buddhist monks. In summer, grab tickets to Access The Festival at Sherbourne Park, and dance in the glorious sunshine to electronic DJs and artists.
The University of Warwick is known for producing graduates that go on to future success through excellent teaching and research.
With inspiring spaces, state of the art sports facilities and one of the largest multi-art form arts centres outside of London with over 2000 events each year, this is a great place to spread your wings without feeling lost in the crowds.
A modern university with international connections that see over 16,000 students studying at 47 locations in 18 countries around the world. Coventry University is the right place to study if employability is a key focus for you at university.
The quality of teaching and research is designed to give students the skills they need to find work across the world. And all campus buildings are located close together so it makes for a really vibrant dedicated study environment.
