The BAME Students Community doesn't currently have an officer - it could be you!

The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Community is a space to share your ideas, opinions and concerns about being a BAME student at Coventry University. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view what events we have coming up.

We organise events, share news, campaign, suggest policy, and do what we can to make Coventry University a better space for BAME individuals.

The Community isn't just for BAME individuals, and it's entirely up to you how involved you want be. Join the Community to include BAME content in your personalised news and updates.
