Student Profile: Julie Jacobs


BSc Management

How did you find out about Warwick?

I heard about Warwick through my school. I went to an international school in the United States and it was common for students to study in different countries.

Did you consider applying anywhere else? What made you choose Warwick?

I also considered studying in Montreal, Canada. Most of my friends either stayed in the United States, in Texas where I lived or went to California. Others went to Montreal and France too. I chose Warwick because it is a campus university and it isn't in a large city like London where I was originally going to study. Therefore, it is slower paced and you really get a sense of community within the university. One of the main reasons I chose Warwick was also its high ranking in Management paired with a cheaper price of living than London.

How did you apply? What was your experience of the application process?

I applied through UCAS and I have a British passport, since I was born here and didn't require a visa. I didn't encounter any difficulties concerning this subject.

How was your arrival? What were your first impressions of campus?

My arrival was great since i have family living in London, they helped me get settled in. The trip from Heathrow to Warwick also isn't too bad. My first impressions were the art around campus and the modern buildings.

What is the best thing about studying at Warwick?

The best thing about Warwick is the fact that it is a campus university, everything is close.

How have you found your accommodation?

My accommodation is on campus. It's very nice and centrally located just 10 min away from each class.

Have you joined any clubs or socieities?

I am a member of the French society.

Have you manage to travel at all during your studies?

Yes since coming to Warwick, I have traveled to France, to see my friends, where I used to live. I've also been to Spain and Italy.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

After graduating, I want to pursue a degree in corporate law.

What advice would you give to anyone considering studying at Warwick?

I would say that it is a great university, a great place to meet new people from an array of backgrounds and cultures.
