    I'm really sorry to like butt in halfway whilst everyone seems to be talking, but I thought I'd join in this thread myself. :P. My bad.

    I'll be studying Law but I'm flying all the way out from the island of Gran Canaria in Spain, albeit both my parents are English and I took my A levels in an English school.

    P.S. Based on watching the Jackie Chan animated series as a kid, I would have loved to be an archaeologist...
    Hi! I'm flying from quite a way too - I have lived in Dubai with my parents for the past 8 years so I can't wait to be back home Are your parents staying in Spain while you are at University?

    Haha...I think I do not have the patience to be a teacher, lol.
    Haha I'd probably want to teach older people like sixth form or university level stuff, can't stand kids

    Hahaha. I think I might go into law. So are you going to study a language? I think I might opt for Latin.

    Hahaha!! It must be sooo cool living in Spain!! Even though your ethnicity is English, would you find it hard adjusting to Britain?

    I've tried doing a little bit of Latin and Ancient Greek and Latin seems really hard haha I think I'd probably do Greek out of the two but that's not really as useful as Latin so I don't really know

    Hahaha. I think Latin seems more, I don't know...more prestigious? Like the employers would sought after?

    How do I log into the start warwick app? How do i register?
    First of all you'll need to enrol and obtain an ITS user account. You'll be able to do this from the 11th of September (I think the date was).

    How do you mean? It's open to the public, so wonder away! If you want a tour, get on to Warwick Welcome Service. If you want to visit a friend or have a friend visit, so long as you let your resident tutor know (so they're your responsibility), there's no problem!

    Warwick only has 1 campus, don't worry . You'll be able to turn up at your accommodation on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of September. The earlier you get here, the better in my opinion! You'll have longer to get used to the place and generally have a look around! Lectures will start on Monday the 30th, so try avoid getting here Sunday night unless you don't have any other choice

    This is a bit of an odd question, but what are the going rates on driving lessons in Coventry? I would have done about 35 hours by the time I get there, so would want to do another 10-15 hours before doing a test. I currently pay £21 p/h or £18.50 p/h if I block book 10 lessons.

    Hi, really useful information on here. I was just wondering about healthcare services? E.g. are there GPs, dentists etc. on campus or do you have to travel into Coventry or elsewhere? Thanks

    There is a campus GP that you can register for on arrivals weekend. This is NHS, so don't worry about charges or things like that . Any prescriptions you pick require can then be picked up from the pharmacy on campus.

    Dentists are slightly more tricky. The closest NHS surgery is North Coventry (IIRC), so expect a bus journey or two over there

    If you need to go to hospital at any point, buses run directly off campus to the hospital (Warwick and Coventry).

    OMG!! I am doing the same course as you! Don't worry, I have not studied classics, so I am on the same boat as you!
    I'm hoping to do this course next year, I've just got my A/S results back and I'm carrying through AAB. What did you guys get in your A/S and A2 results? Did you get interviewed?
