The university is the right place for students to realise their potential and understand their inner call about their interest field. They don’t just provide clarity but a path to success through their numerous opportunities.View more
It is a great University with amazing professors who not only give students a theoretical experience of education but also a practical one. The campus has a lot of greenery and lakes that helps students keep a calm mind. Has a library with a large number of books and group and quiet study spaces. Has separate buildings for every discipline and a large number of clubs and societies that help students to feel a part of a community.View more

Having arrived fresh at Warwick, I was struck in awe by their facilities and their expansive (800 acre) campus. One of my favourite places to study here (aside from the library) is what they call the Oculus, which is a building made specifically for teaching but has the best open spaces for studying in and a cafe too. Aside from this, we have access to gym and sports facilities (both indoors and outdoors) for leisure time (the gym has an all new Nero which is super cool).
As for professors, some of them make lectures really interesting and are extremely approachable, and the same goes for seminar tutors as well. Personally, I thought learning in this manner (with seminars and lectures) would be quite a task to adjust too after high school but the transition was seamless and the professors made both very engaging. Although, some professors tend to be rather dull, they do tend to get their points across without much trouble so that’s alright. In addition, I think the best thing regarding lectures would be Lecture Capture which is a collection of the videotaped lectures that’s a true lifesaver (although one of my modules doesn’t have this sadly).
The course itself is more integrated than I thought it would be which is a huge plus considering I’m studying PPE and I believe Warwick really does live up to its reputation in this regard. I would definitely recommend this to any friend looking to study PPE or a similar course such as PPL (Law) or EPAIS (Econ, Pol and International Studies).
Coming to location, Warwick’s not in a major city/student city so there isn’t too much of a busy environment outside it, but we do have easy access by bus or train to Birmingham, Coventry and Royal Leamington Spa. However, staying on campus does make it feel like you’re living in what bears resemblance to a bubble. Luckily, we do have some nice places like the new Pret at the piazza. For essentials, we have grocery stores (like at Rootes) and both a Barclays and Santanders on campus plus a Tesco and Wilko’s near by.
Student life and the student body at Warwick is really really diverse, with people coming in from as far as China. We have over 200+ societies that can keep you busy (and entertained) throughout term and the communities are really warm and welcoming. My personal favourites are the Warwick India Forum and Warwick Student Cinema.
As for accommodation, I feel quite satisfied with my hall as it’s on Central campus (close to the main buildings and the piazza) however I am slightly jealous of those further off because the rooms on the west-end are larger and tend to enjoy more pleasant silence. Sherboune halls (7-9) are the party blocks which makes the walk (almost hike) worth it on some nights too.
Although I haven’t landed a job yet, I do believe the career prospects are really high from tales of alumni and the fact that large firms come to campus quite often. In addition, the employment rate for someone from my course is 95% so that really does help.
The way that certain departments manage course content, deadlines and exams etc can be to the detriment of the success of students sometimes. This needs to be addressed in order to have students best interests at heart.View more
Studies too theoretical that promote individual rather than group learning. It is therefore really outside the real world situation. The campus environment does not balance the depressing weather. Student life includes daily drinking in order to forget how miserable it is. And warning, there are numerous mental health incidents. They finally introduced some failed policies to fix this situation only for reputation and lawsuit reasons. This is definitely not a university of which I am proud to be a graduate.View more
Warwick has amazing facilities and provides you with everything necessary. You get to meet people from so many different places and everyone’s so friendly, you feel right at home.
Warwick has some really good lecturers and the support system is great. Even outside of your degree, there’s so many different societies you can join.
Being an international student, I’d never been to an open day or offer holders day and so didn’t really know what to expect. But, honestly from the minute we drove into campus surroundings and got right to the main bit, it’s size, greenery and cleanliness really blew me away.
I would definitely recommend the University of Warwick.
It’s a great university with a range of career prospects available to the students. It has many societies you can get yourself involved in and great sports opportunities. What definitely needs improvement is mental health services available for the students.View more
I love how everyone knows each other and gets along with each other and it’s a nice friendly bubble. It’s a chilled friendly vibe for people to really get to know each other and make life long friends.View more
I would recommend it to other students who want to do a challenging Maths degree with good career prospects in a supportive environment. But it must be said recent controversies (Chat Scandal, Extremely Poor Exam Timetable rollout etc.) around campus have somewhat dampened the image of Warwick.View more
