Social and Cultural Activity

Your course will keep you busy academically but we want to ensure that you also have an opportunity to enjoy your time on campus and experience many of the UK’s cultural highlights with your new friends.

Our Mentors

A key part of the programme are our fantastic student mentors who are all existing Warwick students from a range of degree courses. In 2018 our mentors were rated as one of the best parts of the programme. Our mentors will help students to settle into the programme, join in all the planned social and cultural activities, stay over in Halls and offer pastoral support. They offer a fantastic insight into life as a student at Warwick and also arrange lots of informal entertainment in the evenings.



The programme includes a number of evening events at various venues across our large campus:

  • A welcome barbecue on the first evening
  • A formal welcome dinner
  • A fun curry, quiz and disco night
  • Pizza and film night


We will visit the dreaming spires of Oxford, home to the world famous University of Oxford, stunning architecture, the Ashmolean museum and various locations used in the Harry Potter films.

We will enjoy a guided punt on the River Cherwell and the trip wil include some free time with your student ambassadors to explore.


London, London, London

You will enjoy a varied and full programme of activities for the two-night visit to London.

The visit will take in many of London’s top sights and will include dinners out in London, a visit to London's West End for a show and an industry visit.

Full details of all the fantastic activities will be confirmed nearer the time.
