    Future prospects

    The Masters by Research Programme in Natural Hazards will appeal to those students who have an interest in recent, historical and geological events that have impacted on human populations. The programme will also prepare students contemplating progress to MPhil and/or PhD training programmes.

    Course content

    Potential research projects relevant to the programme include non-climatic (eg earthquakes, tsunamis, subaerial slides, submarine slides, glacial hazards, permafrost hazards, periglacial hazards and aeolian hazards) as well as climatic hazards (eg hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, storms, desertification, storm surges, sea level rise and river floods).

    Additional support for international students

    Coventry University takes pride in the culture and richness that its international students bring to campus life. Currently over 2,000 international students from some 90 countries are pursuing programmes of study here, with a growing amount enrolling on postgraduate courses. A recent report ranked the University highly in terms of international student numbers, recognising our reputation as a leading international institution.

    To meet the needs of this rapidly growing community within the University's student population, our International Office is on hand to provide assistance on all relevant matters such as visas and immigration. It also serves as an information centre to help international visitors locate the many services and activities both on campus and further afield.
