The University of Warwick is a British campus university located on the outskirts of Coventry and is regarded as one of the country's leading institutions. Warwick was established in 1965 and currently has more than 18,000 students enrolled from 120 countries and, despite its relatively young age, is one of the 24 elite Russell Group research universities.
The University is made up of the Faculty of Arts, Medicine, Science and Social Sciences, and was recently ranked in the top 10 of the world’s youngest universities, and as the leading university of its kind in the UK. Graduates at Warwick are the third most often targeted by the UK’s top graduate employers and 92% of students with first degrees were in work or further study within six months of graduating last year.
The International Office offers an award-winning service to students both before and throughout their studies. Pre-departure receptions, immigration advice and orientation programmes are designed to ensure that students are well prepared for life at the University.
Warwick has its own recruitment agency to help students find regular or temporary work on campus or with local companies that will fit around their studies. The Careers Service offers a comprehensive range of information, guidance and resources to support your career decision-making, while students will have the opportunity to meet with a range of companies at careers fairs and employer presentations. Access to a large variety of reference books and electronic resources on career planning and valuable advice on application and interview preparation is also involved.
Warwick is consistently ranked as a top 10 UK university by all UK league tables, and holds prestigious academic exchange agreements with some of the world's best universities. The University is recognised as one of the UK’s leading research universities, with the most recent Research Excellence Framework in 2014 showing that 87% of Warwick’s submitted research ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
The excellence of the University of Warwick’s teaching is confirmed by the results of the QAA’s Teaching Assessment Exercise; with 22 out of 24 Departments assessed rated Excellent. Film and TV, horticultural research, maths, French and Italian were amongst the top ranked subjects at any university in the UK.
The University of Warwick has one of the largest ranges of campus accommodation in the UK, with something to suit everyone's needs and budget. You can live in flats or Halls of Residences, with en-suite or shared bathroom facilities, and a limited amount of same-sex accommodation is also available.
All single study campus bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, have access to shared equipped kitchens and come equipped with a network point which allows fast, free internet access. All first year undergraduate and postgraduate international students are guaranteed on-campus accommodation providing their application is received before the published deadline.
The University of Warwick is located in the heart of England, on the edge of the multicultural city of Coventry and the border of Warwickshire. This location means one side of the campus faces a busy modern city whilst the other overlooks beautiful English countryside. Coventry is England’s eighth largest city and offers excellent shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Its mediaeval past can be seen in its remaining buildings, whilst its modern day fame is seen in its modern cathedral.
The University of Warwick campus provides a variety of day-to-day facilities and services for students. The area around the piazza and the Students' Union building are the central shopping spots where you can find a supermarket, banks, post office, pharmacy, bookshop and hairdressers. Warwick’s central location means it is easily accessible by road, rail and air: Birmingham International Airport is only 20 minutes from campus and London is only 65 minutes away by train.
SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my personal advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favorite universities.
