Starting a new course can be daunting – 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. Please do contact her if you have any concerns at all. Her email address is: T.A.Bale@warwick.ac.uk 

You will be assigned a personal tutor who will look after you in the Department over the next three years. You will first meet your tutor 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. You will also be assigned a student mentor (one of our lovely second years) who you’ll meet 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 all be around to meet you in your first week. You might be directed to talk to Jon about any course-based queries – his email address is J dot W dot Burrows at warwick dot ac dot uk. Please contact him if want to make an appointment to talk with him. Alastair is available to answer any wellbeing related queries. Alastair’s email address is: Alastair.Phillips@warwick.ac.uk
