The University of Warwick is one of the UK’s leading universities, with an acknowledged reputation for excellence in research and teaching, for innovation and for links with business and industry.
Established in 1965, Warwick is a young university with an impressive record and ambitious growth plans and is challenging institutions centuries older. Warwick has consistently maintained its position in the top ten of UK university league tables, offering courses with high academic content that are intellectually stimulating, challenging and impacted by the world class research undertaken by Warwick academics. The University has secured its place as one of the UK’s leading research universities and in 2014 performed strongly in the Government’s Research Excellence Framework (REF), strengthening its position within the UK’s top 10 universities for research.
Warwick is a global community of approximately 25,000 students and all are encouraged to be international students regardless of their nationality or how far they have travelled to study here. There are opportunities for learning a language, overseas research placements, study abroad and exchange programmes, cultural societies and a comprehensive employer engagement programme that brings local, national and international employers on to campus to promote job opportunities and to support the employability agenda.
In 2018, Warwick was ranked 3rd most targeted university by the UK’s top 100 graduate employers (The Graduate Market, High Fliers Research Ltd) and 27th in the world for employer reputation in the QS Employability Ranking 2018. Warwick graduates are in demand because of their academic achievement, exposure to business through internships and transferable skills.
A rural setting on the outskirts of a city, the Warwick campus offers a range of facilities, accommodation and amenities including a health centre, bank, sports centre, cafes and restaurants. The public transport network connects the campus with nearby towns and cities for when students want to visit the local area and the close proximity to Birmingham International Airport makes it easy to visit family or explore Europe.
