Culturae Mundi meaning “Cultures of the World” in Latin is a
unique and exciting student partnership programme which
celebrates diversity and multiculturalism on campus and in
the city.

Through themed events and through informal social activities students, staff and city residents come together to share and celebrate cultural diversity.

Black History Month, Coventry Peace Festival, Chinese New
Year, Music Nights and Film Screenings, Chinese Dumpling
making, Turkish culture and language learning, and talking
about their experience of studying abroad, are just a few
examples of the varied programme on offer. This sharing
of cultures helps to promote mutual knowledge and
understanding, and students gain an international
experience without leaving Coventry.

Coventry University students from culturally diverse backgrounds and chosen courses of study work in partnership with staff to manage the programme as well as plan and execute the activities, giving them first hand professional work experience in their chosen disciplines that is highly valued by future employers. This helps to develop students into global graduates right here on campus.

Opportunities on offer include full time intern, graduate associate
consultant, trainee intern, general volunteer and freelancer, in
areas of graphic and web design, Human Resources, Marketing,
Operations/Events, Editing, Photography, Journalism, Music
Technology and Media Production.

We work with local authorities and third sector organizations, encouraging our students to take part in local cultural events and sourcing creative and unique partnership opportunities, for which the Culturae Mundi programme were awarded the 2013 Coventry Community Cohesion Awards for the Public Sector. As a result, in 2015 more than 2,300 students participated in the programme’s cultural events and more than 100 have directly worked in the Culturae Mundi’s events and volunteering teams.

Overall, Culturae Mundi combines employability with social and cultural activities and strengthens the connection between the university and the city which welcomes them.
