Information for taught Masters offer holders

Congratulations on your offer !

Please make sure you fulfil any outstanding conditions as soon as you are able and accept your offer. Unconditional offer holders will receive an email from the enrolment team approximately 6 weeks prior to the start of the course indicating that they are now able to enrol.

Welcome and induction

Welcome Week takes place Monday 28 September 2020 - Sunday 4 October 2020. Welcome Week events are optional although we very much encourage you to come along and enjoy a great start to life at Warwick. There will be a series of department events for PGT students during Welcome Week.

Your course begins formally on Monday 5 October 2020. In your first week you will meet your tutors, take part in induction and training sessions, and begin your first taught module. Please collect your University card before the start of your course so that you have full access to the Life Sciences buildings. The School of Life Sciences is located in Gibbet Hill campus.

Term dates and timetables

Postgraduate term dates extend beyond the undergraduate term dates published. Provisional overview timetables for each course are available, but please remember that these are subject to change.

MSc Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate
MSc Food Security
MSc Medical Biotechnology and Business Management

Details of rooms and times of taught sessions will be made available through your personalised Tabula timetable as the year progresses and may be subject to changes. Tabula links with the MyWarwick app. You can access Tabula once you have enrolled.

Making your optional module choices

When you have enrolled and set up your ITS account you will be able to access Moodle pages for our modules. These show information about the module and may help you decide which to study. Each course also has an academic course director who you can ask for more information once you arrive. You will be able to meet your course director during our Welcome Week.

Later in September the module registration system will open. You will be sent an email with information about how to make your choices. You’ll then have until the third week of term to choose your optional modules.

If you are an MSc Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate or MSc Food Security student and wish to take one of the optional modules outside of our department the process is different and deadlines may be earlier. Please read the relevant module pages for details.
