How did you find out about Warwick?

I considered going to study in the Netherlands or going to other universities in Italy. My friends and my brother all study in Italy.

I chose Warwick as the standard of teaching seemed very good. Moreover, I liked the idea of being in a campus not located within a city, but more on in the countryside. The presence of so many facilities was another reason I chose Warwick,.

How was your arrival?

Arrival was good. Volunteers were on hand to provide information about how to reach my accommodation. Moreover, I was also given a map to learn how to move around campus, together with other leaflets detailing the services offered by the university. I was positively impressed, as I was immediately made to feel at home and at ease.

What is the best thing about being a student at Warwick?

I do not think I can pinpoint one single thing that I like best about Warwick. I think the facilities are amazing, night-life is pretty good too, there are plenty of cafes and bars and loads of different societies, which is great because I get to try many different things. I also really like the workshops offered by university: they are a way to meet new people, develop new skills and also learn more about oneself.

How is your accommodation?

I really like my accommodation. Westwood offers some of the biggest rooms on campus, and the kitchens are pretty big too. It is surrounded by greenery and I get to see animals too, like squirrels and magpies, which is great for an animal lover like me. Moreover, it is quite quiet, which I appreciate it. I do not mind at all the distance from campus.

Have you joined any clubs or societies?

I am not really part of any society. I occasionally take part to yoga lessons with the Yoga Society, but that is about it. I took part in the Apprentice challenge through Warwick Entrepreneurs, and my group won, but I am not part of it.

Have you had chance to travel at all during your studies?

Yes. In the UK, I have been to multiple cities, like Leeds and London. In Europe, I have been to France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Spain and France multiple times.

What do you hope to do when you graduate?

I would like to travel and then go to work abroad.

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

If you are not sure, come to one of the open days. I'd say that if you are looking for really good facilities, outstanding teaching and for the chance to join different societies and meet a lot of new people, I would say to come to Warwick. It is also a great place to come if you want to go abroad, as the university offers many study abroad options.
