Open Days


Attending an Open Day will give you the opportunity to learn more about studying medicine here at WMS. You will be able to find out more about the application process, sample a taster clinical skills session, gain an understanding of the course structure, how it is taught and find out from our current students what it is really like to be a medical student at WMS.

Please note, we are unable to arrange appointments for individual applicants to meet with academic or admissions staff.

We have three open days organised for 2019:

  • Wednesday 3 April

  • Monday 17 June

Register to attend any of the three open days here.

If you have any queries please email us at wms dot events at warwick dot ac dot uk.

    You will need to submit the appropriate application as detailed on the specific accommodation requirements web page for your condition. Please be aware the deadline for your request being supported by the relevant team is 31 July, so you will need to submit suitable evidence in advance to ensure there is enough time for it to be assessed.

    We will send your offer of accommodation by email. You will get a minmum of two working days to accept. If you miss this deadline we may not be able to make another offer of accommodation, so it’s important to regularly check. We can only make one offer of accommodation. You are able to reject your offer, but you will need to make alternative accommodation arrangements.

    Q. Where can I stay overnight?

    A. There are a number of hotels and guests houses in the local area.

    Q. How long does it take to tour the campus?

    A. Approximately one hour.

    Q. I can't attend any of the Open Days; can I visit at another time?

    Q. Can I arrange a private appointment to meet with the Director of Admissions?

    A. Our Open Days give potential applicants far more information and insight into the MB ChB programme at Warwick Medical School than a meeting with one member of staff. The Director of Admissions is, however, usually present at Open Days and is willing to answer questions. We hope you appreciate it is not possible to give potential applicants a private appointment, as we would be unable to meet demand.

    Q. Will I be able to speak to current MB ChB students?

    A. Yes, students will give a presentation on their experiences of the course and how they found the admissions process. There will also be the chance to chat to students during the breaks.

    A. If you have any questions that aren't covered here, please Email us.
