The main reason I chose Warwick was the approachability of the staff and the overall environment and feel. It’s so diverse with people from a wide variety of cultures, enabling you to explore the world and make lifelong friends. I love my degree, studying general engineering in the first year enables you to gain an insight into the various streams before deciding which one you want to focus on. As part of my fourth year project I do Formula Student which is potentially the coolest project there is – we get to build a single seat racing car and race it around Silverstone! My industrial placement involved working for Rolls-Royce Defence in Bristol between my second and third year, as well as doing various summer internships; from this I now have a job offer. Whilst at Warwick I have got involved with a range of clubs; Surf, Judo, Tae Kwon-Do, Rowing, Sailing and Women’s Football. Everyone is so enthusiastic and you can take part in charity events and volunteering. Sports clubs have definitely made my overall university experience something I am proud to be a part of and there is so much going on that you never run out of things to do or try.

My first impressions of Warwick were very positive. The open day was well organised and the staff and students were helpful and friendly. The first thing they did was to take our parents away on a separate tour!I now work as a Body in White (BIW) Project Engineer within the Automotive Engineering Sector of FFT-UK and I know from experience that engineers need to be extremely multi-skilled. The scope of the course and the ability to take a wide range of subjects, were some of the reasons that I chose Warwick.I recommend that undergraduates take languages with their degree, as this adds an interesting edge to a science-based course and gives the opportunity to broaden horizons by studying or working abroad.I enjoyed an excellent social life at Warwick and the Students' Union offered a really good environment to kick back in. I was involved in the first UK University break-dance-WBKD), designing the logo and joining in public demonstrations! In my last year I fulfilled an ambition to try gliding, I was really excited to take to the sky and, having studied an aerodynamics module, was keen to test my understanding of flight theory!
