Nicole Andre | Coventry University Graduate

Nicole Andre, who studied Sociology, knew that a degree would be the perfect way to develop her knowledge and skills. ‘I enjoyed studying and exploring new ideas so HE was ideal for me. When it came to choosing where to go, top for student satisfaction was a huge deciding factor. Coventry was head and shoulders above.’

‘Personally I made as much use of the University’s services as I could. It helped me to think that I was getting the most out of my money. Coventry offers so much more than just study. The library is fantastic, there’s help with employability and placements and you can attend seminars and workshops in different faculties to help broaden your knowledge. Coventry helps you develop personally as well as professionally. It gives you confidence in your abilities and the skills you need to get a high-level graduate role.’

Nicole continued: ‘University is a hugely worthwhile experience and employers really do value graduates. My time at Coventry University has given me a direct route to the career path I’m interested in. I’m working in recruitment for a FTSE 250 construction company. It’s my job to spot talent in graduates, a skill that Coventry taught me plenty about.’
