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

The Self-supporting Students Community is a space for students including care leavers and estranged students, to share ideas, opinions and concerns about being a Self-supporting student at Coventry University.

We organise events, share news, campaign, suggest policy, and do what we can to make Coventry University a better space for Self-supporting individuals. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view what events we have coming up.

The Community isn't just for Self-supporting students, and it's entirely up to you how involved you want be. If you're passionate about the provision for Self-supporting students, then join the Community to include Self-supporting Students content in your personalised news and updates.
