Congratulations on your offer to study Postgraduate Research in the School of Life Sciences. We're looking forward to welcoming you.

Before you arrive at Warwick

Before you arrive at Warwick there are a number of things you will need to do to complete your registration.

  • Unconditional offer
    It is important for you to have received (and accepted) an unconditional offer of a place at Warwick before your start date. If you haven't yet received an unconditional offer please ensure that any conditions set out in your offer email are satisfied as soon as possible.
  • Upload a photo for your University ID Card 
  • Enrolment
    Enrolment is the term used to describe the official registration as a student at the University of Warwick. Online enrolment opens approximately 4-6 weeks before the start of term and should be completed before you arrive at the University.
    Once you have enrolled you can apply for your IT Services account.

If you will be receiving a stipend via the University, please ensure that you enter your bank details (you will need to have completed enrolment before you can enter your bank details).

Immigration Events for International Students

Visit this webpage for a schedule of when the In-Person Right to Study Check and Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) collection will take place for new international students subject to immigration control in the UK, during the main arrival period.

Please be aware that you must attend one of these events to complete your enrolment at the University.
