A message from our Director of Student Experience
As the Admissions Tutor and Director of Student Experience for Liberal Arts here at Warwick, I've been incredibly privileged to read your applications and I have been astounded with the breadth of experiences, passions, and achievements all of you will bring to us. Our offers are not the result of some formula; this is a highly personal process. I've read your personal statements, your references, and your transcripts. We thought about you as we developed new modules and adapted the exisiting ones. I thought about how you, with your unique skills and interests, might contribute to our perpetually-evolving understanding of Problem-Based Learning at Warwick. When we sent out your offer, we celebrated your success not just because we felt we had got to know you, but also because we are so excited to see everything that the application process couldn't reveal. But most of all, we're so thrilled because we know that you belong here.
Liberal Arts at Warwick is a small, close-knit group of faculty and students, and we know how important it is to ensure that we don't just accept students with high marks. Rather, our students represent the most ambitious, energetic, independent, and creative university entrants, eager to work collaboratively to continually reshape the programme for themselves and subsequent generations of Liberal Arts students. You will be the ambassadors of this degree--a degree that means so much to us, the Liberal Arts faculty--and we have every confidence in your ability to make this experience something truly special for all of us.
I know that this can be a stressful time, especially as you weigh various course offers and try to imagine the routes your life can take. We want to encourage you to take risks, to dream big, and to make your decision out of hope and determination, not stress or anxiety. If you have any questions, big or small, or you just want to have a chat, please don't hesitate to drop me a message via email, Twitter, or Skype.
Welcome to the Liberal Arts at Warwick community; we can't wait to see you on campus in October."
Are we right for you?
