Seven Inspiring Tips for CLL students - No.7

Recently, the Centre for Lifelong Learning Team caught up with Taiwo Ogunrinde, former student of the Gateway to HE course who then progressed to a degree and is currently studying her second year of the full-time Social Studies Degree. She shares with us her seven tips for mature students and her inspiring journey to education.

Tip Seven: Don’t be reluctant to ask for help. Everyone is approachable and very helpful including the lecturers.

“In my time at Warwick so far, I’ve had to re-learn about asking for help. I’m used to doing things myself because I left home at a very young age. And this reflected in other areas too.

“I remember during our induction week last year, one thing the CLL team told us repeatedly was to always ask for help whenever we need it, ranging from family to essays. And each time I got stuck, I will drop a quick email to my lecturers, or book an appointment to see someone in the wellbeing team or with my personal tutor, and each of those helped me greatly.”
