University marks one year of London campus
By Jordan Muckley
It has been one year since the Coventry University London Campus (CULC) opened its doors to students.
Situated in the heart of London’s financial district, the campus has become a well-respected hub for professionally-oriented MBA courses which have been specially developed in consultation with business leaders and prospective undergraduates.
The CULC has already attracted international students from countries including China, India and the Middle-East.
Janet Hannah, Director of CULC, said that the courses and location of the campus are proving to be an exciting prospect for current and prospective students.
“The London Campus gives international students the opportunity to learn about business, and to study and work in one of the world’s leading financial capitals. It is the ideal setting for students to immerse themselves in both the academic and practical side of the business world.”
Going from strength to strength in its first year, CULC has welcomed more than 1,000 students to its courses. Many students have been attracted by the business-like approach to learning and the state-of-the-art facilities that echo that of a financial epicentre.
Fully equipped with its own 25-station trading floor simulator, it allows for interactive teaching of complex financial investments and to simulate specific market conditions, which helps to expose students to the pressures and consequences of financial trading.
Janet added: “Employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship is a vital part of the London Campus’s success and one popular feature of the programmes that we deliver is that all the students will be offered work experience opportunities.”
The London Campus complements the current expansion of the City Centre Campus where the University is spending £150 million over the next two years.
