The Study Blog connects you with information, support and the Warwick community. It’s about your study experience, the highs and lows, with posts offering tips on how to best navigate your studies. We are based at the University of Warwick Library, with our posts written by both students and staff. We like sharing our knowledge with everyone, so while we are here for Warwick students, we also welcome any readers who need a hand with university life.

I am currently completing a Clinical Psychology masters after completing my undergrad at Warwick. I really enjoy blogging on mental health topics, especially focusing on small practical tips that are easy to implement into everyday life. Alongside my degree I really enjoy playing netball, running and anything horse related.

I’m a Maths and Statistics Integrated Masters graduate from Warwick, beginning my PhD at the Institute of Cancer Research in October 2022. I can’t wait to share my PhD and Warwick experience with you! Outside of my studies I love music and art. I love playing in wind orchestras and painting with watercolours.
