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.

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.

Plastic waste- a story about the modern day problem

Overall
One of the most relevant problem planet Earth is currently facing is the plastic waste issue.
In 2016, Europe produced 60 million tonnes of waste alone, with an overall of 335 million tonnes worldwide. Plastic packaging represents 26% of the total volume of all plastic used and in Europe only 30 % per year is collected for recycling with a 39% being incinerated and the rest 31% ends up in landfills (Microbial Biotechnology, 2019). 
United Kingdom is a country that consider itself to be a nation of recyclers as data shows that over 86% of UK consumers say that they recycle food packaging (Mintel, 2018) and also the government has putted in motion its 25 year plan to improve the environment as a there has been a strong interest in buying loose products and for the supermarkets to have plastic free aisles ( HM Government,2018). 

OBJECTIVES
- To understand how many consumers, purchase products that are environmentally friendly and what factors influenced the buying decision;
- To understand how plastic free products have been perceived by consumers in terms of demand and options available;
- To gather views on the food packaging in terms of affordability, efficiency and environmentally friendly.
- To understand if customers understand how to recycle.
SAMPLE
-Questionnaire will be send to customers who own loyal cards and/or have purchased plastic free packing products in the last 12 months from supermarkets such as Iceland, Tesco and Waitrose.
-A focus group of 60 people will be split into 4 groups. A Mintel (2018) report states that 91% of consumers believe recycling does indeed make a difference, however this statement weakens amongst younger age groups so based on this, the first group will contain male and females from 19-35 with low income while the second group will contain male and females aged 36-55 with higher income.

QUALITATIVE
For the focus group, 60 customers with different demographics (age, gender, income) as well as psychographics such as lifestyle, are invited and separated into 4 groups. They will be asked a variety of questions and asked to share their opinions about the food packaging prior being given the opportunity to see and touch the plastic free new packaging.
Issues Discussed:
-Which parts of the packaging are recyclable;
-Consumers perception about the brand based on the packaging;
-The relevance of the packaging when purchasing the product;
-Consumers attitude towards purchasing plastic free products;
-Difference between plastic free packaging and normal packaging.

Testing: Customers will be told to range and comment the products packaging. Each customer will be given a few samples of different products with different size of packaging. Customers will be asked to rate the samples on a scale from 1 to 10 based on how simple the packaging is, how easy to recycle is and how effective it is.
-Organic packaging as alternative;
-Perception of the target market;
-Looks of packaging and perception of it;
-Price.

QUANTITATIVE
The questionnaire will be given to those customers who purchased plastic free packaging products within the past 12 months. For this questionnaire, Likert-style set question are used with a 1-5 scale with 1 being the least important and 5 being the most important.
-Price is an important factor when purchasing a new vehicle;
-I would buy organic packaging products instead of normal packaging products;
-I have strong environmentally friendly views;
-I am satisfied with the products I buy;
-I am satisfied with the way I recycle;
-Organic packaging products are harder to find;
-I actively look for plastic free packaging products;
-I look after low price products, not environmentally friendly;
-Organic packaging products cost more.

Classification Questions
1)Gender
2)Income
3)Age
4) Normal packaging avoidance
