    You can download the welcome pack and student guide here

    Although on the website it says:
    'Welcome to Warwick' packs are sent out in mid to late August so you should receive yours in September. This will be sent to the home address provided during the application process.
    Thanks

    Somehow I logged in university website using ID as username and birth date as password in format of xx/xx/xxxx without slashes (don't know if it works with slashes)
    Unfortunately it recognises you as non student.

    Hi! I'm studying Ancient History and Classical Archaeology but since my school didn't offer Classics at GCSE or A Level I've never had a single lesson in the subject. How much reading should I try and do to prepare for the course? And does anyone know who I can contact for a suggested reading list? Thanks

    Hello just wondering what kind of stuff everyone is taking for halls for the kitchen... Do we need to bring pots and pans and things like that?

    I'm so excited to start at Warwick in September! I've been confirmed to read History and Politics... Is anyone else doing anything similar? XxXx

    So do you think most people will go to this family talk? When you say you didn't know parents were coming, I'm talking about when they drop me off at warwick. how long is it okay for them to stay helping me unpack before I start missing out on making friends :cool:
    Well now I think lots of people will go, but I am not sure if the talk is just for the rents or if it is for students too....I really doubt you'll miss out on making friends, the talk won't last for the whole day! And I have a feeling a lot of people will actually go because we're all new students so everyone is gonna be in the same boat I presume...

    Right, let's clear some of this up

    We sign up to these clubs at the sports fair right?
    If you want to pay in cash, then you can sign up at the sports fair, or at sports centre reception at any time . If you would like to pay by card (because before you can join a club you need Warwick Sport membership for £49, which is a lot of cash to carry round!), you can pay online on the Warwick Sport website when you have an ITS log in

    The Welcome Talk isn't anything special, don't worry . Yes, families do attend, but there's really not much in it for students. As for how long they stay, it can be as long as you want them to . Naturally, socialising will happen in the evening, so if they're away by 6 ish, that's fine :yep:

    I really wanted to go AyaCon this year! Unfortunately had budget constraints so It looks amazing, but I thought this year is definitely the last?

    I've been wanting to try out go for ages but there's no club in my area so this is the perfect opportunity for me to learn I haven't seen any other uni have a Go society either :O Good to know about sports though - currently looking at basketball and fencing
    Well, from what I've heard, they can negotiate another contract, but aren't currently looking to . They may well have a better offer from another university (Nottingham has a great new conference facility apparently), so it may occur there under a different name :unsure:

    I have a question about the local pharmacies. Are the nearby pharmacies on an electronic system where I can transfer over any repeat prescriptions to them without needing them to send a letter to my current doctors surgery?
    There's a pharmacy on campus in the lower atrium of the SU building. They do deal with all sorts of prescriptions, don't worry . As for transfers, I'm not sure, sorry!

    (Original post by crazyangelg)
    Thank you so much Would you say the jobs are relatively easy to get?
    SU jobs? Depends. There'll be 4/5 applicants to 1 place, so it's not difficult, nope . If you have a first aid qualification, you can easily get a first aid job. There were a 2 applicants to 1 place at the last sign up :yep:

    About the Arrivals Weekend, when do most freshers leave their parents? For instance, is it common for families to attend the 'Vice-Chancellor's welcome address for families' at 2pm. I'm just thinking 2pm is a bit late in the day. I wouldn't want to miss out on meeting everyone that's all :cool:
    You'll generally miss out on the main part of the freshers fair at that time, which is all your free stuff :teeth: . It's generally a waste of time, so I wouldn't bother going :yep: . Socialising tends to happen in the evening rather than during the day (as people do have to come from far away!), so long as you're around your kitchen from about 6 ish, the proper socialising begins around then :yep:

    Hello just wondering what kind of stuff everyone is taking for halls for the kitchen... Do we need to bring pots and pans and things like that?
    You will need everything :yep:

    Due to space constraints, try and bring 1 pan, 1 frying pan, maybe 2 plates and 2 sets of knives and forks etc. etc. The more extravagant cooking items you can probably leave at home (I know of no-one that used a blender for example). Also, the less you take, the more it makes you have to wash up! And if it's washed up, no-one's likely to nick it (which does happen) :yep:

    It's more for the parents, yep . It's just a 'Warwick's great, you'll have a great time, these are the opportunities that you can look forward to' type propaganda talk . Only about 1/6 of the new students will actually go due to space constraints however :yep:

    You won't miss out on socialising, no, but you miss out on the main throng of the freshers fair, which is your free stuff :yep: . And socialising will happen mostly in the evening when most people have had a chance to arrive :yep:

    Another politics and sociology person!

    Thank goodness for that, I can't ever find people on the sites doing that.
    Was afraid I was going to be the only one.

    Hi everyone. I will be studying Chemistry with management this october. I just wanted to ask what events are not included with the freshers passport and whether it is worth buying the platinum card or not.

    Thanks for the help! And don't worry I've got an extra L so I think we'll be alright :wink: What accommodation have you applied for? There were 3 Callum's in my year at school so only 2 is a relief

    Yay! I was really scared everyone would have A levels and know loads and I'd be completely confused by it all :ashamed2: Thank God I won't be the only non-classicist there
