first meeting with my supervisor

Hello, I'm just starting a PhD at Warwick. I have met my supervisor previously when I was applying but now I'm here I'm not sure if I should be the one to arrange our first meeting? Should I wait for them to contact me or can I set up a meeting? Is there anything I should bring to or raise at our first meeting?  I'd appreciate your advice...

Academic writing in a second language

Hi, I'm struggling a bit with my academic writing. English is my second language, I write and talk in day to day situations no problem but making sure my language is up to standard for my research proposals etc. is proving difficult. Is the academic writing team good for this? Has anybody else had to deal with this?  Thank you in advance.

Uni help with job hunting?

Can anybody point me in the direction of the best place to get help with job hunting? I'm finishing my masters at the end of the summer and will graduate in January (fingers crossed!). I've begun my job hunt but could do with some help refining my CV, and some tips managing job interviews. Thanks all!

Taking a break from research learning how to play music ?

Hi all,   I often catch myself thinking that I could use a bit of my free time to learn something stimulating and exciting. I feel a bit sad about the fact that I never had the real chance to learn how to play any instrument. My only experience was trying to play the violin, but I had only 6 months of training because my teacher at the time had to move to a different city.    was wondering if anyone of you guys know if Warwick offers some sort of training course for beginners
