Departmental Administrator (Teaching and Learning)

My name is Darani Anand, Departmental Administrator for Teaching and Learning. I manage the administrative processes that relate to UG, PGT and PGR student life cycle. I work closely with the UG programmes officer and the Director of Undergraduate Studies on a daily basis and together we are your UG admin team. I have an open door policy and am happy to see you anytime. We are here to support you and enable you to have the best possible experience during your time at Warwick.

Sociology is a very friendly department and provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere to students. Students have access to the department common room where they can relax, study and enjoy a free cup of coffee. This gives you the opportunity to meet fellow students and colleagues. Life at Warwick Sociology is not all about study, we have various social events that you can take part and have a fun time. To mention a few, you can be part of the Sociology Society, go on the study trip, attend Sociology lunches and be part of focus groups and share your ideas.

We look forward to welcoming you in October and being part of your student journey.

Jeremy Chin, BA Politics and Sociology

As an international student, I found that it’s really important to engage actively in extra-curricular activities in order to integrate and enjoy the overseas experience. Warwick has given me the opportunity to try Polo – the most British of sports! As a newbie I love the sport as well as the crazy socials that the club is involved in.

To push myself further outside of my comfort zone, I joined the Warwick Jailbreak, where I hitch hiked without a single cent to support the fight against breast cancer – I was in the back of a van busking on the streets of London, networking with CEOs during a ride. These activities have added so much colour to my Warwick experience and make life so much more exciting!

The Department makes an active effort to bond the community at all levels. For example, with lunches to discuss Brexit, or just chilling in the common room with our professors, the department makes us feel like we ae part of an exciting community that is eager to grow academically and closer together.
