Student Leaders

We have a team of seven Sabbatical Officers who work full-time to represent you on a variety of things in the University. They each have a specialism such as Postgraduate student support (VP for Postgraduate Students'), societies (VP for Activities) and wellbeing (VP Sports and Wellbeing) and more.

There is also a team of part-time officers who represent specific communities amongst students at Coventry University. There are officers who focus on academic groups such as the faculties or postgraduate taught students and liberation groups such as BME students or LGBT+ students.

We hold annual elections for all our officer positions and any student can nominate themselves for an applicable role.
