Subject Taster Day: Media Production

University event offered by Coventry University

Event Summary:

Coventry University is running a series of free Taster Days this July. A Subject Taster Day provides students who are looking at coming to university in September 2013 (currently in year 12) with a taste of what student life at Coventry University is like.

Full Event Details:

Your students will take part in an interactive workshop in their chosen subject area; gain an understanding of the different teaching methods used by university academics and see at first hand the academic facilities available to them. They will also be able to meet some current Coventry University students and get an inside view from them about the CU experience.

TV Studio Master Class: in this media production master class, participants will get a hands-on practical experience in our television studio, creating, producing and starring in their own TV quiz show. Experiencing a variety of industry standard TV production roles from Director, Camera Operator, Floor Manager and Editor, as well as trying their hand at being a quiz show contestant (ever wondered if you could win a million or beat the cube?), participants will learn to work together as a team and get a taster of life in-front of and behind the scenes of a live TV show.

Places on Subject Taster Days are limited and most only offer 20 spaces, such as the Performing Arts, Media and Health subjects. However the Design courses do have the capacity to facilitate larger numbers. To avoid disappointment book early, by clicking onto our website and completing a booking form.

IMPORTANT: Bookings for Subject Taster Days must be made on a group basis by the school or college. We cannot accept individual bookings. We require a ratio of at least 1 teacher for every 15 students booked on. Please contact us if you have any queries about the booking process.

Institution Profile:

Coventry University is a dynamic, global and transformational ‘modern university’ whose roots can be traced back to 1843 to the Coventry School of Design. With a proud tradition as a provider of innovative teaching and learning and a focus on impactful research, the university has established a robust reputation for pushing the boundaries of higher education regionally, nationally and across the world.

Through its links with leading-edge businesses and organizations in a variety of countries and industries, Coventry University’s 30,000+ students enjoy access to placements and international opportunities which ensure that their employment prospects are enhanced by the time they graduate. Its students also benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities – including on its London and Scarborough campuses – in all academic disciplines, from health, business and performing arts to industrial design, engineering and computing.

In recent years Coventry’s student satisfaction levels and teaching quality have been rated amongst the best in the UK, which in turn has led to impressive rises in every major university league table. The combination of these successes and its unique approach to developments in the sector – including the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering and a new campus in Scarborough – earned Coventry a gold rating in the UK government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2017, and saw it labelled “perhaps the most innovative university in the UK” by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.

It ranks as the country’s top modern university in the Guardian University Guide 2019 for the seventh year running – and was in 13th place overall in the table. It was in the top 100 of universities in Europe for the quality of its teaching and learning in THE Europe Teaching Rankings 2018. In the same table it ranks top in the UK – and third in Europe – for how well it engages with its students. The university was named ‘Modern University of the Year’ by the Times and Sunday Times for three years running from 2014 to 2016. Coventry also places in the top 200 in the THE Young University Rankings 2017.

The university is recognised internationally for its expertise in health, peacebuilding and disaster management, and for the world-leading calibre of its engineering and design graduates – particularly in the automotive field. It was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2015 in recognition of its international growth and success over the past six years.

Coventry’s city centre campus itself is continually developing and evolving, and a £500 million-plus investment in a new student centre, engineering and computing building and science and health facility is playing a key role in modernising the entire learning experience.
