Digital Humanities for Postgraduate Researchers
The Faculty of Arts is pleased to announce a new opportunity for postgraduate researchers. In January 2022 we will launch our new academic certificate 'Digital Humanities for Postgraduate Researchers'. This ten-week certificate will support our PGRs in learning the basics - and some advanced techniques - in the field of digital humanities. This will support both your research and your employability, as well as enabling you to strengthen your links to the learning community here at Warwick.
The Study Café is an in-person all-day session where you can write, read and work on your assessment in a focused and supportive working environment. At each Study Café an academic from the Faculty of Arts will be on hand all day to provide guidance and support with assessments. You can attend for part of the day or all day - it's up to you.
What students have said about previous Study Café sessions:
- 'Loved the ability to get feedback on work. Love the location and the ability to discuss with fellow students of similar disciplines about their work. The food and hot drinks and fruit'.
- 'The supportive environment and the access to coffee'
- 'Interactive with students and professors'
- 'the fact that people are there for the same reason that I am, and that if you need help, there is always someone who listens to you'
Undergraduate Research Support Scheme
The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme enables undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research project. The scheme is open to any UG student at Warwick of a full-time or part-time course, in any year including first and final year students.
'Let's Get Digital': Digital Assessment in the Faculty of Arts
This student-led co-creation project seeks to provide a one-stop-shop for resources, information and guidance about creating, accessing and studying modules with digital assessment opportunities in the Faculty of Arts. The site offers support and training to both staff and students in an equal space that builds up digital proficiency for everyone regardless of age or position.
Then & Now: Arts at Warwick Student-Led Research Project and Digital Exhibition
This student-led research and public engagement project explored the history of the Arts Faculty and student experience at the University of Warwick. Undergraduate and postgraduate students from across the Arts Faculty worked collaboratively to conduct archival research at the Modern Records Centre and Students’ Union and interviews with past and present staff and students.

We are calling all undergraduate arts students to help us bring this digital laboratory to life! This is a space for you to share your work and explore others’, in the annual Digital Arts Laboratory Showcase and Competition.
You’ll be able to submit your best academic work created through or about digital tools. Join us in celebrating the best art created through technology and immersive practices.

Student Pre-Arrival Resource
Staff and students in the Faculty of Arts have co-created an online learning resource for students to access before they start their course at Warwick. The asynchronous resource includes a mixture of video and interactive activities which introduces students, pre-arrival, to life and learning at University and, hopefully, dispels some of the anxieties around coming to University. Current students can access the Moodle resource here.
