Case Study

Name: Judy Waturi Wambugu

Country of origin: Kenya

Programme: Disaster Management MSc/PgDip/PgCert degree


I have learnt a lot and I do not regret taking this course. I felt there is a need to gain skills in disaster management as Kenya and Africa as a whole is lagging behind and so many disasters are happening on a daily basis.

Coventry University was the first to start this course and has maintained the lead. The lecturers are highly qualified and have been practicing in this field for a while therefore the quality of education is guaranteed.

Coventry University is situated in a strategic place near the city centre and there is ample accommodation. The library is fully stocked with the latest books and journals and there is an online library with 24 hour access which I find very convenient and has been very helpful to me. Coventry University is located in a very safe place and has friendly people from all backgrounds and cultures.
