How did you find out about Warwick?

When I came to Coventry a couple of summers ago, I loved the city so much that I toured Warwick and was strongly considering studying at Warwick as an option. I also heard about Warwick from family friends who work there and in addition I had some friends that already go here and actually applied to go here.

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

One of the other universities I considered going to was Coventry University, I do have friends that go there as well as Birmingham University. I chose Warwick over other Universities because of the diversity of ethnicities and cultures as well as its location. One thing I like about Warwick is that it is centrally located, and only a short train ride away from other big cities such as Birmingham, and London.

Did you contact the department before applying?

Yes, I contacted the Warwick International Foundation Programme.

How did you find the application process?

I applied through the Warwick IFP, and I did so by myself. It was confusing because my guidance counsellors were not educated in the UK's application process and terminology so I had to do a lot of extra research to understand.

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

I found the campus tour very helpful and loved that it had a Campus feel.

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

I think one of the best things about Warwick, is the number of opportunities that are offered here.

How is your accommodation?

I live in Arthur Vick and I love my accommodation, I find that having my own bathroom provides me with privacy which is one thing that is a priority.

What do you hope to do when you graduate?

When I graduate, I hope to start my own Interior Design business right here in Coventry.

What makes you happiest about studying at Warwick?

The food here is great, I love how many options there are!

What advice would you give to anyone considering applying?

If I could advise a student considering to study at Warwick, it would be to visit the University, do research and to have an idea of the type of University that they want to go to.
