As we head into 2023, there’s no better time for us to introduce our brand-new Study Blog bloggers. Editor Ellie takes us on a tour.
The Study Blog is part of the University of Warwick Library, and is written by students, for students, seeking to connect you with information, support, and the Warwick community. We publish a post every Thursday on a wide range of topics, from using the Library services to the best tips for revision, and all the joys of student life. Our student writers come from a range of subjects and years, sharing their experiences, advice and knowledge to help you have the best university experience you can.

I am currently completing a Clinical Psychology masters after completing my undergrad at Warwick.

Alongside my degree I really enjoy playing netball, running and anything horse related. You can follow me on Instagram @ionaa.craig or connect with me on LinkedIn at Iona Craig.
