Welcome to Coventry!

It is very exciting to see our International cohort getting bigger and bigger every year.

Before you kick-off your student journey, there are a few things we believe could be beneficial for you.

Community & Inclusion

Community and Inclusion is here to ensure the student experience is inclusive and to ensure all students feel they belong here at Coventry, regardless of nationality or ethnicity.

We organise campaigns, events, activities, and training, provide support, and have opportunities for you to get involved in all aspects of our work.

To stay up to date with Community and Inclusion, join our mailing list and follow us on Insta!

Home sickness

Being home sick, especially during your first weeks is normal. You have moved to new place; you probably don’t know many people. It is totally fine to miss home, your friends and family. Give yourself some time to adjust to a new place. Don’t be harsh on yourself and try to get out of your comfort zone.

Culture Shock

Even if you know that many things may differ from how they used to be back home, it's not unusual to experience culture shock.

We all come from different parts of the world, and experience this on daily basis in the things we encounter. Whether it’s food, climate or language try to celebrate it, see it as something new and exciting.

It’s natural to be hesitant of new things, but there’s no better way to fight that fear than getting familiar with what’s new and embrace it. You have a chance to meet people from all around the world and get to know their culture, how exciting is that?

Get Social

The great thing about CUSU is that we offer a huge variety of societies, sports, and other opportunities to connect. There is literally something for everyone, whether you are a book lover or great basketball player, we have it!

If you have an idea for a group that hasn’t been established yet, you can start your own society. It is a great opportunity to meet new people as well as try something completely new. Anxious about joining alone? Keep in mind that there are plenty of students that will come alone as well and would like to meet someone new.

Events

At CUSU we make sure that you receive a healthy balance between learning and entertainment. Throughout the academic year we organise events, many of them cultural and international in theme!

We make sure everything we organise is diverse and accessible. On the cusu.org website you can access a full calendar of upcoming events, from club nights to craftivism sessions, there's something for everyone.
