Kenilworth woman Naomi Alsop has won the University of Warwick's Adult student of the year award for students studying on the University's 2+2 degree programme. The award is in recognition of all she has achieved on her degree programme despite having had no formal education since the age of 12 due to her illness (ME).

Her award includes a £50 book token and a certificate. She has not missed a single class since starting her 2+2 degree. She has now completed the first two years of the degree programme and her tutors have declared her work to be "outstanding".

Warwick's 2+2 degrees are designed for adults 21 years or over, new to study or who have missed out on Higher Education for other reasons. The first two years of the programme are taught at partner colleges (in Naomi's case this was City College in Coventry) enabling students to gain confidence in coping with academic study. This allows for a comfortable transition into the final two years of the programme which are taught on the Warwick campus.
