Very expensive campus. At most universities, students go to the union for cheap drinks. At Warwick Uni, students take buses into town to avoid getting stung in the wallet. Very poor and unprofessional admin staff. They didn't even realise I was on my course until a few days before it began when, without a hint of contrition, they sent me on a crazy paper chase to sort the requisite paperwork. They also lost one of the essays I submitted and asked me to write it again in order to pass the course. This happened, incredibly, two months after my course ended! The union is designed like a rat's maze; hence a nightmare for security staff to keep safe. The best way to get a sincere apology out of anyone in authority at Warwick is to hire the Ghost of Christmas Past to do a job on them. All they seem to care about is squeezing students for money.
I've now been to several of the Midland Universities, and Warwick will always be the one that stands out for me. The campus is absolutely amazing (and stunning under the sun), and the support and student community are well established and makes you feel like you're a part of something big.
Do not go to this place. I am in the chemistry department which is really unfriendly and has quite a toxic atmosphere. Nobody talks to each other and the professors spend way more time fighting with each other and do not care about helping the students. Avoid at all costs!
Pro's - I mean there are good bits. Overall I have found the teaching of good quality and my course enjoyable. Cons - EVERYTHING is overpriced. Parking has gone up 50% since I began uni. (I have to commute in my car unfortunately). It's now better value (taking into account size of cup) to buy coffee from Costa than any of the retail outlets. Rootes grocery store is consistently overpriced and of low quality. Bar fusion again is ludicrously overpriced, deciding to almost double the price of chips last year for example. 'Sports federation' and 'Societies federation' are overpriced in comparison to other uni's and this money doesnt seem to go back into clubs. Gym membership is ludicrous and has to be paid entirely up front for the year, accomodation is ludicrous. It's a real shame for a university with such a good academic reputation to be ran like a business trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of students.
terrible place to study, and it was the worst choice I had made in my entire life. The mood inside the campus is very toxic, and you can tell that by spending some time in London university libraries, where people a much more cheery. The professors are fighting each other all the time and one professor in my department got suspended due to a row with colleagues over job recruitment. This divisive mood is picked up by post graduates as well and they spend a lot of their time in the common room gossiping about others rather than gathering up to discuss academic works. A lot of the postgraduates have moved out, and have shifted to London, so basically you don't get a chance to meet a lot of the people who actually are registered there. The outer environment , which is Coventry city was recently ranked as the worst city in the UK, and the sense of desolation you encounter there makes you feel that you never want to set your foot in there ever again. Never choose this university.
As part of the department of chemistry, the analytical science course is very disorganized. The students are not told about assessment days until the last moment and the course structure is not adequate for part time studying. I do not recommend this university to anyone that wants to study any of the analytical science courses, including Molecular Analytical Science (MAS), Analytical Science & Instrumentation (ASI) and Polymer Science.
Pros: - largely modern - good facilities Cons: - distance from closest cities causes the creation of a nasty social bubble - generally unpleasant and highly obnoxious British students - mediocre quality of teaching for the level that the university wants itself to be at, particularly in the CompSci department - lack of seriousness with regards to career support - very barebones clubs that are deeply uninteresting, though this one is also largely a result of the types of students generally coming here - general lack of professionalism among the younger teachers - I hope you like having your inbox spammed Overall, my stay at Warwick was my least favorite part of education, and it being such a disappointment is what led me to abandon the option of going for a masters degree and instead return to my home country and get employed there.
Can't really fault it - i'm in love with my uni! Maybe just revamp the humanities building if you have a spare few million, but the restaurants and bars and club and green space and arts centre are second to none.
An interesting uni that requires proper participation to enjoy it. There are plenty of opportunities wherever you go to have fun and to do well. However, it requires a lot of active effort, a lot can pass you by without you even knowing it.
My experience here at Warwick has been really good. Academically, I am more than satisfied with my modules and timetable. Socially, could not have been better; living with wonderful flatmates, made some "module" mates which is great. Sport facilities are good, wide range of societies and all are fully active. Corporations and firms have a big presence on campus and give us a lot of opportunities.
Warwick is a beautiful campus which always looks very sleek,there is always something going on but if you are into clubbing Warwick is definitly not for you! The student union isn't the best and the student nights are a bit repetitive and you feel ypu have to be drunk to enjoy them which is a shame
Loved my time here 99% of the time. Will miss it very much. Wished there were a few things I could have changed about my course (Law and Sociology) but I've come away with my partner, friends for life and great experiences that I will cherish forever. Will miss this place!
For a university that is in the top 10 the teaching is absolutely rubbish These lectures have a masters degree and some have PhDs but all they know to is read of an empty slide. I'm paying 9k for an empty slide I don't feel 9k smarter either.
The university of Warwick has so much to offer, it's the perfect campus university and provides a home away from home feel! The societies and clubs give you a nurturing sense of belonging and the career opportunities help you discover what path you intend to follow after completing your degree, the uni is a great help and I recommend any students with passion and dedication to choose a uni where everyone in it serves to fuel those things and build on you to make you thrive!!
The involvement in clubs and societies is daunting. I have attempted many but have never been accepted into any other than my academic society. The facilities are fantastic unless you are a humanities student as we are the bottom of the chain. Also, the library is unbearable in term 3 - rather than spend £80,000 on a pointless rebranding that I could have done myself, maybe they should try and make the library more accessible during the busy periods. Saying this however, my department has been incredible and have been attentive and responsive to any issues or questions I have raised. They take the time to go through things with me to enable me to understand what I need to be doing. For that alone id recommend Warwick.
The beautiful campus has everything you could possibly need within a 20 minute radius of all the main lecture theatres, including accommodation..... What more does a student want?! Oh there are also ducks.... A lot of them
Warwick is diverse, busy and a wonderful place to be. Opportunities are plentiful, there's no such thing as boredom! The academic side of things (important at a uni, I guess) is outstanding. Warwick offers a high standard of education and a wonderful and helpful support system who are there for each and every student regardless of what the issue is. I couldn't be happier anywhere else.
Warwick is not only an amazing place full of likeminded intellectuals,butchered is top quality community banter that anyone can be involved in. I was always an outsider but attending warwick has made me feel like a key player in something so special. This uni is one big second family to me. Friends are all around you.... Your flatmates, your course friends, your tutors, and even that weird guy who always sits next to you in the library is a brilliant chap to share a coffee with when you need a break. I can't imagine anywhere better to get my degree.the atmosphere is phenomenal!
A fantastic Campus university enabling a comfortable and safe environment to learn and socialise. Being a campus university makes your university experience very student focused and encourages greater participation in society activity and events. Course material is interesting and challenging with great academic support. Wonderful place that enables a perfect combination of study and play.
A young university but a powerhouse in the world of tertiary education and research. Extremely reputable with with a global approach to teaching. It is one of the best universities in Europe with so much to offer, that's why I chose Warwick.
I love Warwick
- I love clubs, especially WarwickSnow - Campus Uni, so you get a certain community feeling - Excellent lectures (at least some of them)
- Library is too small - Gym is too small - Some lectures are not recorded - Far away from big towns
A secure and comfortable campus, with well managed facilities and plenty of societies
The study areas, however numerous are badly located given my accommodation (sherbourne) with most if not all of my studying taking place in my room for no other reason but time.
Great University Experience
It has an amazing campus life, everything that you need is literally within walking distance. Also, the quality of both the academics and the students is really high, providing for insightful lectures and engaging and ispirining debates.
The nightlife (it you're into that kind of stuff) is pretty shit, so you might need to get off campus to have a good time, which can sometimes be quite expensive.
