Entry Requirements

Liberal Arts student

Our students

Liberal Arts at Warwick is more than becoming an expert in a narrowly-defined field - it's a wider pursuit for a breadth of knowledge. You'll therefore be best suited to this course if you have taken a broad range of A Levels (or equivalent). We welcome students who are ambitious, have taken risks and have refused to limit themselves to one subject during their education so far.

This course is ideal for you if you enjoy thinking about the 'Big Questions' that are facing contemporary society and the world at large, and if you prefer to approach problems from the perspective of more than one discipline.

General entry requirements

  • AAA
  • You will also need grade B/grade 6 in English and Mathematics at GCSE
