College Life

Truly immerse yourself in college life

Coventry College is much more than a place to learn. It’s a place to enjoy new experiences, meet new people, realise your ambitions, and grow as person.

The College experience is all about getting involved with extra-curricular activities and truly immersing yourself in life at Coventry. These additional activities can also support you with life outside college and help you when applying for opportunities, such as university or employment.

Clubs and Societies

Whether you’re interested in art and design, film or chess — our range of clubs give you the opportunity to learn new skills and try different things. Our clubs and societies are run by students and if you can’t find anything that gets you excited, you can create or set up your own.

Student Union

As soon as you enrol at the College, you’ll become a member of the Student Union. The Union is run by learners and works to improve all aspects of college life. You can run for a Student Union Executive position whilst you’re at college, to become the voice of your peers.

Learner Voice Programme

Learner Representatives are elected within their tutor groups during October. Once you are a Learner Representative you are taken on a journey of opportunity to develop new skills, build friendships with learners across the whole college and are vital in promoting the views of your peers to the wider college community through the Learner Council.
