The University of Warwick is a world-leading university (77th, Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019), which offers a strong academic challenge for students. However, Warwick is much more than this. The institution is a place which inspires, excites, invigorates and supports.
For over 55 years Warwick has remained highly regarded and is ranked 9th in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2020. Today, the university's three Faculties of Arts Social Sciences and Science, Engineering and Medicine continue to pioneer and excel. Each faculty is focused on the power of unbounded learning, motivating its students to pursue subjects outside of their home department. As a result of this approach, Warwick's graduates benefit from a versatility of thinking that prepares them for a competitive global market.
The focus on working across boundaries is also evident through Warwick's internationally recognised research rated 7th among UK research universities by the Research Excellence Framework, 2014. Each of Warwick's students share a curious nature, and each finds inspiration from a community of more than 27,000 students, representing around 150 nations.
Warwick's facilities are designed with students' intellectual development and individual learning approach in mind. From this base, students are well placed to explore further afield. Students have great access to Coventry city centre and the nearby towns of Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon and Kenilworth. The university is also a short train ride from Birmingham, the UK's second city and London is only an hour's train ride.
Student life at Warwick provides students with skills development and experiences that will build their employability profile. Support is readily available for students to reflect on what it is that's making them more employable with the university the 3rd most targeted university by the UK's top 100 graduate employers (The Graduate Market in 2020, High Fliers Research).
