A huge variety of subjects offered, including opportunities to take modules from other departments and faculties. Teaching staff are top of their field and for the most part very dedicated.
The University of Warwick is fairly new, having not been founded until 1965. Warwick is a multinational university with nearly 30,000 students from over 120 countries on campus.
A popular university, competition for places at Warwick is high. In 2021/22 over 43,000 students applied for an undergraduate place, with only 6,346 eventually being enrolled.
As a campus uni, there are lots of facilities on-site, including the National Automotive Innovation Centre, the new Mathematical Sciences Building and the Sports and Wellness Hub, which supports the uni’s aim of being the most active campus by 2030. Additionally, the Warwick Arts Centre and the Faculty of Arts buildings are impressive arts facilities and are also used by the public.
Despite the name, the University of Warwick is actually based 3 miles from the centre of Coventry. Because of this, students tend to spend a lot of time outside of their studies in Coventry and Leamington Spa, where students can find bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, as well as other entertainment facilities to enjoy outside of classes.
Among the university’s famous ex-students are Stephen Merchant, co-creator of the Office, Ruth Jones, co-creator and star of Gavin and Stacey and Tony Wheeler, the founder of the Lonely Planet.
