The university campus in coventry is beautiful, and the city itself is pretty small, with everything available at a walkable distance. You make good connections with the locals. The library at the University is surprisingly one of the best i've come across. The collegaues are amazing, helpful and friendly. The senior management is always available to advice on career growth.
There are far too many students in any given class, it can get really hard to give all of them attention.
The excellent work atmosphere, the amazing people at the university. Almost nothing negative to say about the place.
“Comfy warm academic job”
Coventry is rather small, and everything is very closeby. In almost no time everyone will know you, and the whole experience becomes very warm and family like. The universe has a similiar charm, and the work environment is addictive, and you'd want to work here forever.
Things go a little slow if youre used to fast paced research institutions. The quality of students is good, but theyre not as bright as the best out there. There is also often too many students, and therefore a lack of personal attention.
The most surprisingly comfortable, warm and human academic job ive ever had
