Hi, I’m Rebecca, or Becca (but definitely not Becky!). I am an Ancient History and Classical Archaeology with Study in Europe student, heading into my third year at Warwick University. Outside of my degree I enjoy reading, fluffy socks, tea and Ghibli films. Warwick was my aim for a few years before I got my A-Level results, and so far it has not disappointed! I had not studied Classics academically before university, and I found the department welcoming to someone with little knowledge of the area other than a profound interest and generalised facts discovered in dusty tomes from my dad. My degree has allowed me to finally study a subject my school never offered, as well as expand on skills I already have in literature and languages. As of September I have been living and studying in Rome for my Erasmus year, and in between visiting ancient sites and practising my Italian I'm hoping to give an insight on what it's like to be a Warwick student abroad!
