A great institution in creating lasting memories

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.

Great place to meet driven individuals and world renown lecturers

I have just graduated and I found that Warwick tends to attract driven individuals who goes the extra mile. Moreover, the university environment pushes and guides you to acheive career goals. The societies are also driven to support students through engaging with corporates to share about available opportunities and due to the Warwick brand, students often land good jobs. For those more keen on entrepreneurship, there are lots of support for budding entrepreneurs. For those who are more keen on academics, there are also lots of research opportunities. Researchers are keen on getting extra help from students. 

You will always find your own fit in the university. However, if you like something more laid back, perhaps, it is not the best place to be. 

I have to be honest, the tuition fee for social sciences like economics and accounting & finance are above the average rate but Warwick has developed a good reputation and cost of living is not as high as cities like London.

A study place with an excellent culture for career preparation

Warwick has pretty much everything in terms of support offices, especially in helping its students to be prepared in working life. The exposure that support offices is giving are massive - from career fair to personal help. The environment has been encouraging, just a bit off in terms
Academics throughout my course have been quite tough but pretty much covered most areas of the discipline that we would like to venture into.

The Warwick Experience

The University experience is wonderful and enlightening. It has shown me that further education can be extremely beneficial towards furthering my mind and the environment around me. I feel that the University experience proves to be beneficial towards each individual student involved and can be used to the fullest towards completing personal goals and targets.

Work Hard, Play Hard

I think that the main advantage of studying at Warwick is the fact that it is considered a target school for economics, hence it is relatively easy to find a job in investment banking or consulting, which is where most economics graduate aim to work after the completion of their course. Furthermore, it is a very international university, hence you can find almost any type of people you want. Campus life can become quite monotonous compared to city life, however Birmingham is close by, and London is only an hour away if you take the Virgin train. Leamington Spa is also quite nice for student life and it is a very short bus ride away. In terms of teaching, most professors received their qualifications from the top universities in the world, and they are very knowledgeable, nevertheless, personally, sometimes I found the quality of lectures relatively dissatisfying, mostly because I enjoy having a close relationship with my teachers, and this is difficult in my course due to the high number of students per class. My advice to someone thinking of studying at Warwick, and in particular Economics is to be prepared to have a lot of material to study, but also to have a great time while you're here.
