“Getting inspired by Theatre”
“The Theatre department recently hosted an alumni event. It was really exciting to meet people who had once been exactly in our position! Whilst some worked in the theatre industry (such as actress Bathsheba Piepe and producer/director Lawrence Till), others worked in different areas (such as Laura Williams, an specialist Art, Design & Architecture Librarian at the University of Huddersfield).”
Beth Rawsthorn, Theatre
"My internship so far"
“I will not lie – it has been a lot of effort, and I never run out of anything to do. However, this experience has boosted my confidence. I have realised that I am able to pick up relevant research skills quickly and efficiently.”
Olugbemi Moronfolu, Psychology graduate
"What I’ve learnt as a second year student"
“One of the paid opportunities provided by Warwick is being a Student Ambassador for the Warwick Welcome Service. If you went to our Open Day yesterday, we are the people wearing the bright yellow t-shirts. I also applied to be a student blogger. I love talking about my life and writing is a way for me to de-stress.”
