CLL kicks off the Summer with FREE Seminars for prospective students and locals

Summer has officially started with a three-week heatwave warming up the UK and getting everyone into the holiday spirit...

But on the horizon, the autumn countdown has begun, with less than 50 days until summer draws to a close, kids return to school after a long break and our courses start up for the next academic year.

At the Centre for Lifelong Learning, we understand that returning to study can be a big step to take for our students, which is why this Summer we are welcoming anyone who is joining us, considering starting a course or just interested in their options the opportunity to take part in our Summer Seminars.

So far, we have kicked off our Summer Seminars with ‘Fake News! Exploring the use of source material in the media’, which took place on Westwood Campus last Wednesday. The session was hosted by Jim Judges, CLL’s e-Learning Manager and Anil Awesti, Senior Teaching Fellow and Tutor.

What sessions are available?
We have four more Summer seminars to go in our line-up, all approaching a variety of topics. You can see the full list below:

· Approaches to counselling (Wednesday 25 July, 9:30am-12pm, WT0.01)

· The Wisdom of Crowds: Learning in teams (Tuesday 7 August, 12:30-3pm, WT0.01)

· Introduction to Social Work (Thursday 23 August, 10:30am-1pm, WT0.01)

· Panel discussion – ask your questions on academia, university life, and what it is like to study at Warwick (w/b 3 September)


What can I expect from the day?
Each seminar will explore a different area of the social sciences, encouraging debate and engagement so you can understand how an academic seminar works.


Will I need to prepare anything?
No prior knowledge or reading is needed, just enthusiasm for the subject.


Who will be running the sessions?
Seminars will be taught by academic staff who teach at the Centre.


Who are these Seminars designed for?
These seminars are primarily designed for new undergraduate students but if you are starting with us on a postgraduate course or are moving into the second or third year of your undergraduate degree you are also welcome to get involved.
