About Us

Warwick is a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. 

Born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration, from the moment the first 450 students arrived on its 400-acre campus in 1965, we’ve been forward-focused. A member of the Russell Group, we’re consistently present in the rankings of the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities, and we are 24th in the world for our reputation with employers (QS World University Rankings 2018).

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework placed Warwick 7th among UK research universities, meaning you’ll learn alongside academics at the cusp of new thinking. In 2016/17 Warwick awarded approximately £33-34m in postgraduate funding, helping outstanding students to succeed.
