I had a brilliant time at Warwick and really enjoyed my Renaissance Studies MA. We had excellent lectures from both Warwick staff and visiting academics which were stimulating and opened up areas for further study. I learnt a great deal, developed my research skills and extended my interests which have remained with me ever since. I also enjoyed attending conferences which were not only full of fascinating information, they also brought the opportunity to make contacts and immerse myself in the academic world. I am still attending lectures and conferences over a decade later. While I was at Warwick, I made the most of the superb sports and arts facilities, as well as the excellent Language Centre; I also attended Italian classes. Of course, the social life was great too!
