adventure-begins
We’re delighted that you’re joining us in the Department this year and hope that you’ll settle in quickly, find new friends and be intellectually challenged and stimulated by your course. The Department is a small, close-knit community of film and television scholars and we’re glad that you’ve found your home here with us.
Information for Incoming Undergraduate Students

We will continue to update this section throughout August and September, please check back for more details.

Starting a new course can be daunting – many of you are moving away from home for the first time – so we hope to make this process as easy and enjoyable as possible. The university’s Welcome to Warwick site has lots of essential information on it about settling into university life. In the Department, there are a number of people who are here to look out for you: Tracey McVey is our Departmental Administrator and is a great first port of call for any questions you have. Her office is room A0.13 – please do call in to see her if you have any concerns at all.

You will be assigned a personal tutor who will look after you in the Department over the next three years. You will meet your tutor on the first day as a group of tutees, and then should schedule a meeting with them so you can get to know each other better in the first couple of weeks of term. You’ll be told all about how your personal tutor will support you when you meet them on day one. You will also be assigned a student mentor (one of our lovely second years) who you’ll meet at an informal gathering during welcome week. They’ll be able to answer any questions you might have too, and give you useful advice from a seasoned Warwick Film and Television Studies undergraduate perspective! We’ll let you know who your mentor is when you arrive.

Professor Rachel Moseley is Head of Department, Dr Jon Burrows is Director of Undergraduate Studies and Professor Alastair Phillips is Director of Student Experience. They will both be around to meet you in your first week. You might be directed to talk to Jon about any course-based queries – his office is A1.20 and his email address is J dot W dot Burrows at warwick dot ac dot uk if you don’t catch him there and want to make an appointment. Alastair is available to answer any wellbeing related queries.
