Warwick Business School (WBS) was created in 1967. It is part of the University of Warwick, which is one of the UK’s top universities and is its largest department.Show more
Warwick although not in a very good location offers students a great social life. Unlike universities in a city, it has a huge campus which offers a wide range of things to do. There are restaurants all over, from healthy options like bread oven (our own subway substitute!) to places where you can hog on junk food. There are also bikes all across campus that one can rent/pay a monthly see for to bike from one place to another, which I find very convenient. There’s a Tesco superstore nearby too, which offers more affordable groceries than the campus grocery store. As for value for money, I feel that the fee for Warwick business school is actually quite high for international students, with little to no aid available which is quite disappointing. I think more focus needs to be paid on creating funding opportunities for international students which makes them more motivated. As for mental well being, recent happenings have really escalated the focus on mental health and Warwick really has paid attention to ensure its students are doing well. The students union also offers lots of support for mental well being which is a plus point. There are also lots of career opportunities at WBS such as regular career fairs, events by companies such as Unilever, Amplify trading etc. which really help one gain more exposure in specific industries. By the end of it, Warwick business school provides great opportunities but needs to focus more on providing value to international students.View more
The diversity of people here we find in Warwick is greater than I thought and it is amazing as I get to know more about different cultures. I have found many friends from various parts of the world and have gained global exposure.
The range of societies and clubs is great we get to try different things. I am a part of the volleyball club and people in my club are very welcoming and inclusive so I had no problem with blending in even though I joined in the second term in my first year. In my first year, I opted for a twin room and was allotted a twin room in the accommodation Sherbourne. Although Sherbourne is quite far from the central campus, it is only a 5-minute walk from the newly built gym and is a very modern accommodation. The rent for a double room is half of the ensuite and hence it is an opportunity to be in a modern and nicely built accommodation at a lower cost.
I study Bsc management which is a very flexible course. Since I had always wanted to learn Spanish, in my second year I opted to learn Spanish in my course.
The location is a little secluded however since Warwick has thousands of students, one never feels that they are away from the city as it feels like a city in itself.
All in all, I believe that Warwick has given me a great experience in terms of course flexibility and social life.
The campus is very welcoming and Modern. There are many opportunities at Warwick but it is up to the student how do they want to make the most out of it and the staff at the school will definitely helo as much as possible. The location and the ranking have been amazing.View more
Warwick business school is one of the best universities around the globe with a solid base of economic and business studies. Moreover, students get a chance to study in a diverse and warm environment with professional stuff which tries to provide the best opportunities for career development. One of the memorable features of the university are great events which sometimes take a place in one of the landmarks of the London city, the Shard building.View more
Warwick business school for me is just the place I’d want to be at. There are lots of networking opportunities with a large number of career events and societies that help you connect with new people. The faculty is very well qualified and never fails to support you no matter where you’re stuck, there is also an undergraduate office which helps answer all your questions. Apart from academics, Warwick as a whole feels like it’s a little city of its own, with small towns such as Leamington spa nearby which are lively and great to reside in during your penultimate year! There also lots of sports and a newly built well-equipped gym which offers lots of fitnesses classes, a swimming pool and even mountain climbing! The accommodation is also quite good, I stayed at lakeside which was an en-suite accommodation and is quite secluded. The best accommodation is bluebell which is in central campus, however, it is quite pricey. All in all, great experience however the international student fee seems too high.View more
My experience at Warwick Business School has been amazing so I highly recommend this university. It has a wide range of courses and modules to fit your choice perfectly. The courses are very flexible and can be altered according to one’s choice. It also allows you to choose modules from other departments of the university and hence, is very flexible. Very friendly atmosphere and the best on-campus experience with excellent accommodation. I personally was given one of my top 3 accommodation choices and loved the experience at Lakeside (my accommodation). In the second year, one can reside in Leamington spa, which is a small town not very far from campus (approx. 25 min by the bus). Most students live here in their penultimate and final years and really enjoy it. It has lots of cafes, restaurants, night clubs and stores. Definitely recommend this uni if you like living far from the hustle-bustle of large cities.View more
Societies at Warwick are diverse, ranging from cultural, career, academic, to hobby-related ones. They help students connect with top-notch employers and help students stretch themselves. I have been part of 3 societies at the executive level in my second year and the opportunities that they brought were unbeatable. I expanded my network and developed a reservoir of experiences that helped during job interviews.View more
I really enjoy studying at Warwick Business School, firstly the building in itself is magnificent! To add to that, the faculty is very knowledgeable and helpful and the coursework is very engaging and relevant in today’s business context. Although Warwick is a little bit secluded in terms of location, that in itself makes it a community of people, which makes it a happy little place to be in. The student social life is also really good, since there are lots of societies, events and clubs to go to. There are also lots of restaurants and cafés in leamington spa and coventry that definitely don’t let one feel like they’re missing out on the good food!View more

I would highly recommend the University of Warwick because of its high academic standards and because of the exemplary way in which the university tries to handle the problems of the students.
The facilities are also great. The only problem I see is that sometimes life in accommodations is too noisy but I guess this is a part of being a student.View more
