Life in Coventry
Well known throughout the 20th century for being a centre of the
motor industry – Peugeot and Jaguar had plants in the city, and Jaguar
continue to house their design headquarters here.
Coventry is fast emerging with a fresh face. Alongside Basil Spence’s
extraordinary modern cathedral, rebuild after the city was bombed in
World War II, new buildings and developments continue to emerge. The
city is proud to house one of the UK's finest medieval guildhalls,
almshouses and monastic foundations as well as the world-class Coventry
Transport Museum. And with its own airport – getting around Europe is
easy from this central city.
In 2005, the Ricoh Arena at the north of the city opened serving as
the home of Coventry City Football Club and also as one of the West
Midlands’ primary venues for sport and music events and conferences,
playing host this year to top bands like Oasis and Take That.

region understand the value that graduates can add to any team. By
