Congratulations on obtaining a place at the Mathematics Department here at the University of Warwick! We look forward to welcoming you in September. In the meantime the pages contained here will help you understand what you should be doing before you arrive, and what you will need to do during your first weeks here. During Welcome Week, the first session will be on Wednesday 30th September, at 10am, online (see your emails from the University). Please try to "arrive" early so we can start promptly.
Arrangements for teaching are still being finalised. Most of your lectures/classes will be online in Term 1 with a mixture of Live ("synchronous") and Pre-recorded ("asynchronous") lectures along with other electronic resources, but hope to provide some face to face contact with your Personal Tutors and "Supervisors" where it is safe to do so. You will also be submitting your assessed work online, we will explain how to do this during Welcome Week.
You do not need to register for any modules yet; you can prepare by looking at the available options if you'd like, but you can wait until you arrive before registering, and registrations are not binding initially. The first induction meeting will explain how to choose your modules.
Before you arrive you may want to do some reading to get you up and running.
There will be a further induction session on Friday (technology allowing) of the first week once you have all settled in a bit.
From September 7th you will be access a new online module "MA1K2 Refresher Mathematics" (you will need to have registered with the University and set up your online account first). This course was set up because students had their A-level work interrupted by the coronavirus lockdown. The main aim of the course is to help you get back into the swing of academic study by reviewing A-level maths. However, while the material will be familiar to you, the course will offer you a new way of thinking about it, that will prepare you better for university study. You will also get a taste of university-style lectures albeit the somewhat unusual online lectures that will take place in the next few months.
This module is "core" for you and will appear on your registrations, but any assessment will not count as credit towards your degree and is for feedback only, so please don't get stressed by it.
Your First Weeks
