Hello Test,

Welcome to the first newsletter of the new academic year! We'll keep you up to date with what's on at Warwick in two newsletters each week. You can always find more news and opportunities on the MyWarwick website and MyWarwick app.

If you haven't already, make sure you download the MyWarwick app as you'll be able to see your timetable, study space availability, events, the campus map and much more...

Be aware of scams

Please be aware of scams as they are particularly common at the start of the academic year. Scammers may pretend to be from organisations such as HMRC or the police. If you receive a communication that worries you, need advice, or think you may have been scammed, please call our Community Safety Team immediately on 024765 22083. View advice on how to spot scams.

Support and safety

Support with the cost of living

We know that with the rising cost of living, you may be feeling concerned about managing your money and covering costs this year. A priority this term, and academic year, is to support you with the rising cost of living so that you have the best experience possible while you're at Warwick. We’ve created a hub on MyWarwick where you’ll find details about financial support, part-time work, on-campus spaces and facilities, teams who are here for you and more. We’re currently working on a package of support, and we will share more details via the newsletter and on these pages over the coming weeks.

Stay safe - Covid-19 guidance

The government released a 'Living with Covid-19' Plan earlier this year, which details that the remaining legal requirements linked to Covid-19 have been removed. The safety and wellbeing of all members of our community is always our utmost priority so we will continue to share the current Covid-19 information and guidance.

Wellbeing and Student Support

Wellbeing and Student Support provide a range of resources, services and sessions that can help you to develop the personal resources and skills you need to navigate the challenges and opportunities of student life.

Take some time out this term to reflect on your wellbeing needs by signing up for the Steps to Wellbeing programme. You’ll learn a range of different strategies you can adopt and use in your day-to-day life – academically, socially, and personally.

Let's keep the dialogue going

Your feedback 

Student feedback from last year, including from the National Student Survey (NSS), has enabled us to see where we can improve and work together with you to keep improving your experience. At Warwick, we really value your feedback and will continue to give you lots of opportunities to share your views throughout the year. You can also talk with your course reps, who represent you on the Student Staff Liaison Committee.

Student panel

We’d like to invite you to join our student panel where you can share your opinions to help improve the student experience at Warwick. Every now and then we’ll send you an email asking you to join an online focus group, schedule a 1-2-1 interview or take part in a poll. You’ll receive an Amazon voucher for taking part in focus groups and interviews. For surveys, we'll enter you into a prize draw.

The panel is open to everyone. It’s really important to us that we ensure our panel represents all students at Warwick so that we can gain insight into a broad range of experiences. We want to be able to speak to and hear from students from different backgrounds, study levels, courses, course types and course durations (part-time or full-time). Sign up for the student panel.

Hear from this year’s winners and be inspired by what you could achieve alongside your studies.
