Learned a lot of important things for my future career. The most important thing that i have learned is the collaboration and interaction with people with different background(language, culture etc.).

Overall
I have studied business and human resources management in Coventry University. At first i did not like the place as much as i had imagined, i can assume that the weather was the main reason for that.However after few months i got used to it and everything was fine. The course was interesting with some great modules such, Developing HR professionals, Contemporary issues in HR service delivery,Creating global and ethical Human Resources, some key chapters of my whole course were, change management, working psychology, well-being of the employees, motivation, psychological contract, personal development.
The professors were all professionals and always there to help students.They were answering each question accurately and they were open for a face-to-face meeting for further information. Coventry university is not actually a campus, however today a lot of things have changed. Coventry university has been voted modern university of the year in UK when i was studying which indicates the effort from the management for further improvements.
The life there as i have explained before was a bit tough at the start of my career but then was really good. 
The university's services were fine, with libraries, sports center, academic office etc. Sometimes i was struggling a bit with some papers( confirmation letters, financial issues) generally bureaucracy but today as i am more mature i can say that sometimes i was wrong and inpatient  and that's why i was dissatisfied.  In overall i am happy with my university career and i have gained a lot of experience and knowledge as well which will further enhance my career opportunities for the future.

5.0/5
Overall
The aim of the BSc Geography course is to provide students with experiential learning, including field work, to develop knowledge and understanding of physical environments. Graduates will understand the evolution and significance of the distinctiveness of places and environments, and the inter- relationships between people and climate, ecosystems, and landscapes. As part of their studies students will develop specialist science research skills. A BSc Geography graduate possesses a substantive depth of knowledge through specialisation within sub-fields of the subject such as hydrology, ecology, earth system sciences, climatology, quaternary science and environmental management.
First academic year provides a thorough grounding in the basic content, principles, methods and techniques of the subject, using the exploration of issues of current concern in the discipline as a way of introducing students to the study of geography at degree level.
  Geosystems , Landscape and Introduction to Disasters modules have  provided an innovative and interdisciplinary study of Earth System Science by offering an introduction to the geological, geomorphological and climatic processes affecting the Earth over different time and spatial scales;  The three modules also draws upon information from physical, chemistry and math disciplines as it investigates the role of nature in causing global change.
  A Globalising World,Sustainable Britain modules have described the Impact of Socio-economic and International Trade on National Environment.
  Numerical & Spatial Skills for Geography, Field and Higher Education Skills modules develop spatial analyzing techniques, geographical computer science(GIS) and statistics in academic research that are essential in understanding basic geographical knowledge and conducting fieldwork.
Second academic year, emphasis is switched to the study of concepts, themes and approaches.  Level 2 modules therefore adopt a more systematic approach, examining competing explanations of change in the principal areas of the subject. 
Climate Change: the Science and the Symptoms, the structure of the atmosphere has been explored in terms of natural physics and enhanced greenhouse states. Natural and anthropogenic forcing factors will be explored and the effects that a changing climate has on the biosphere have been discussed. The history and development of the science of climatology will also be introduced. The module also examines the development, future and effectiveness of national and international climate change policy.
  Rivers & Coasts module aims to provide students with an understanding of the processes operating in both fluvial and coastal systems, and their management with physics and chemistry study.
  Biogeography, Ecology and Ecosystem has applied and appraised approaches to understanding ecosystem and habitat function and description major theories underpinning species distributions and interactions. 
Applied GIS & Remote Sensing module has analyzed and critiqued open source and proprietary software for GIS and image processing utilised for data handling, analysis, presentation and interpretation of digital geospatial data. Apply knowledge and software techniques to a variety of datasets to generate geographical outputs.
Final academic year of the program encourages the development of independent and critical thinking and seeks to increase the students' awareness of the wider relevance of their subject knowledge and expertise. As an independent learner, demonstrating written, oral, visual, numerical and digital competence, time management and team working skills
  Environmental Management and Assessment module has discussed the feasibility of sustainable development in the framework of macro-economy, social science, national legislation and statistical management methods.
  Biodiversity and Conservation module critically reviews the conservation of biodiversity in a global context and evaluates how conservation value may be determined. Whilst, assimilates and applies the different criteria for designation of conservation status (to both species and habitats) at a local and global scale.
  Environmental Pollution and Mitigation module has focused on that Identify potential pollutant sources and discuss their impacts; Critically evaluate techniques used for monitoring and investigation of environmental pollution; Examine the application of relevant environmental legislation and policies; Review methods of control and mitigation used to deal with environmental pollution and evaluate their application.
  Applied Geomorphology: Theory and Practice is concerned with understanding how knowledge of physical geography is used to manage [sub-] surface geomorphological processes in urban and agrarian environments. It thus provides practical support for environmental and engineering decision-making, from project planning to site investigation and design. This module explores various spatiotemporal settings to better help develop site models and explaining the distribution and characteristics of certain ground-related problems in periglacial and arid regions.
The module explores key concepts that underpin our efforts to clarify the causes, mechanisms and consequences of landform change, and the techniques that are available to geomorphologists when working in the field, laboratory or through remote sensing.

Personal recommendation
Coventry is not a beautiful place, actually I've choosen it because it was the only place in England linked with my university. It is an owful town, it doesn't have cultural life, not even a decent cinema, but I had an extraordinarily great experience. I learned that you can build a new life everywhere, even in the middle of nowhere... Probably it is only partly true: the fact is that a life as erasmus is something special, and you could experience it everywhere you go. it is a magical experience from a human/social point of view much more than from an academic point of view.
