Our Values

Pursuit of excellence

Excellence is a given. We strive to be the best across our core research and teaching, as well as in everything that supports what we do. We also strive to do even better next time.


Ours is a lively university community that encourages and challenges ideas, promotes dignity, respect, health and wellbeing, and makes Warwick welcoming.

Ambition and drive

Our success is driven by the desire of our staff and students to challenge convention, create something new, and play their part in shaping the future.


We’ve always believed in widening participation, in being open, friendly, easy to work with as equal partners, and as non-hierarchical as possible.


We’re forward-looking, fast-moving, flexible and free-thinking, quick to explore new ideas, to exploit fresh opportunities and to take well considered risks.

Global perspective

Our cosmopolitan outlook and identity enrich our thinking and inform our quest for global relevance and world-class impact.

Making a difference

We aim to show the world what a modern university can do: delivering a service, solving problems and providing sustainability for the community and global society.


We’re self-sufficient, unafraid to upset the status quo, to redefine
Academic parameters and satisfy our appetite for exploration, innovation and leadership.
