The university is everything a student could ask for, especially if you are looking for a campus lifestyle. The quality of education is good, and the lecturers and tutors are willing to help. The students here are really nice and friendly, and truly practice the saying, "Play hard, work hard". Being able to be in a community who strives to do better everyday and have fun at the same time has grown me to be a better individual both physically and mentally. Warwick has definitely given me a taste and prepared me for the 'real-world'. I arrived at Warwick naive and fearful, left as a well-learned and confident person. All in all, my tenure at Warwick university was a great experience. Looking back to the first day, I am glad that I stepped foot on the place which has created memories that I would cherish for a lifetime. show less

Admission Process (5*) The admission process went smooth as far as I can remember. Application via UCAS was straightforward and the results of my application were informed there. You should be fine as long as you meet the minimum grade requirements and write a decent personal statement. My CAS number was issued by the University via email with more than enough time to obtain a visa. Funding and Scholarship (N/A) Not applicable to me as I have not applied for one. However, it appears that university scholarship for undergraduate degrees are more limited relative to master’s degrees. If you're looking for scholarship, the UK has a few organisations that offer scholarships as well. If you intend to fund your own fees, the tuition fees are £20,000 per annum for a degree in Accounting & Finance and rising. Study experience (4*) I am convinced that having the knowledge does not automatically means you have the ability to teach and there are some lecturers and tutors who are able to do both. You will be responsible for your own education and will have to put in extra hours revising. You will roughly need 3 hours of self study for every 1 hour of contact hours (based on the CAT system) Obviously, above average students will be able to put in less hours and still gain a comprehensive understanding of the module. The study spaces on university are sufficient during the first 2 terms of the academic year, but it can be very difficult to get a space in the 3rd term as the summer examination starts. This situation is exacerbate by students who hog study spaces in the library but this is mitigated by the recent implementation of a monitoring system that allows you to push aside belongings left by previous students if they leave their desk for a certain amount of time. Life experience (4*) This will depend mostly on how much you invest your time in activities other than studying. The university boast a long list of club and societies you can participate in, and you can even create your own if the club you intend to join does not exist. There is also a sports centre on campus and has courts, a gym, and even a room for wall climbing. However, to participate, you will need to sign up for their respective membership and will not be included in the tuition fees you pay to the university. There is an Art Cinema that has many productions that are worth watching, pubs and snack bars run by the student union which is convenient if you need a bite in between classes, a grocery store, and banks (Barclays and Santander) for your convenience. There is also a bar and a club if you are interested in the night life in university. A chaplain is also available on campus for spiritual needs. I have not experienced the counselling and support network here in the university personally, but I heard from a friend that the counselling session she has attended was helpful. Job prospect (5*) I have the impression that Warwick is a strong brand and is recognised by employers in the UK especially in the field of business. I also have the impression that UK degrees are looked on highly by Malaysian employers and I am confident in securing a graduate job in my field shortly after leaving university. The university also has an excellent Student Careers & Skills department which I have utilised over the year to better prepare myself for interview sessions and assessment centres that employers use to screen potential employees. The department also has sessions which can improve your soft skills (writing, speaking, speed reading etc.) and the sessions I have been to so far have been helpful and I still practice some of the tips that I have learnt today. show less
