Information for our Offer Holders

Registration for the Offer Holder Visit Days (20th and 21st March) will open here on 15th February at 4pm.

Please follow this link to the registration page.

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study at Warwick

This page contains information for applicants who have received an offer, or who have been recommended by the Department to receive an offer, to study for any of the Data Science, MathStat or MORSE degrees at Warwick.

The next step


You will be invited to an Offer-Holder Visit Day. These take place on March 20th and March 21st. You will normally receive your invitation by email in the first two weeks of February that gives details about registration.

The Offer-Holder Visit Day has been designed to give you a better idea of the range of possible "real world" applications of modern mathematics, and an insight into what our students and their lecturers/professors actually do. It will also include a talk by a lecturer based on some recent A-level and STEP-paper questions. (We do strongly encourage students to take STEP papers if at all possible: see below for more on this.) There will be information on careers and funding, and various opportunities for questions and individual consultations. Please see below for a schedule.

These special Visit Days at Warwick Statistics are for our offer-holders only. Our aim is to provide a very memorable day of activity that will inspire you, as well as helping you to decide whether Warwick is the best place for your degree course. Our students are extremely important to the life of the Department; if you do come to study here, we want you to be sure that the choice you made was the right one for you.

Your decision

Deciding on your Firm and Insurance choices is a very important decision. Below is information which may help you decide.

The course structure and information about modules

Studying in one of our degree courses means following your passion for mathematical sciences and combining it with modern applications. An overview of our courses can be found at the departmental undergraduate courses website: and the departmental pages for the Data Science, MathStat, and MORSE degrees. Alternatively, this information is included in the online version of our Undergraduate Brochure. Very detailed course guides for our degrees with links to module descriptions can be found on our course handbook pages.

Research at the Department of Statistics

postersession2 Warwick Statistics is internationally renowned for wide-ranging and cutting-edge research with applications and impact in many areas in sciences, social sciences, medicine, engineering, management science, finance and commerce. Undergraduate students benefits from this in a number of ways:

  • Innovative course design combining mathematics and statistics with modern applications
  • Providing a taste of frontier research areas already in undergraduate modules
  • Opportunities to conduct exciting research projects over the summer and as part of the final year

Warwick was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher & Further Education 2015 for research in Mathematics and Statistics and its global impact. Warwick Mathematics and Statistics are ranked 3rd in the national research assessment REF 2014. Information about our full range of research activities and links to research initiatives can be found at our research webpages.



Some information about possible careers can be found in our Undergraduate Brochure and on our Graduates in Demand page. A manned stand of the Warwick Student Careers will be there for you to engage in discussions about potential career paths after graduation and about the stepping stones such as internships.

STEP, AEA and our Entrance Prizes

Mathematics at university is more complex and more rigorous than mathematics at school. We recommend that you get a taste of this by obtaining more practice in mathematical problem solving. An excellent way to do so is to prepare for an AEA and/or for one of the STEP papers in Mathematics. Any time that you spend preparing for such papers will help you with the transition to university-level mathematics. At the same time, after having practised these harder questions, you should feel even more confident in answering standard A-level questions, thereby boosting your A-level performance. More about the motivation and practicalities regarding STEP and AEA can be found in our FAQ pages. In order to encourage you to take one of these examinations, we offer a £2000 prize to each 2017 entrant who achieves Grade S (Outstanding) in any of STEP I, STEP II or STEP III in 2017.

Programme on the Offer-Holder Visit Day

  • 10:30-11:15 Welcome coffee and registration (with the opportunity to speakd to some academics about the courses)
  • 11:15-12:00 Talk "Risk and Predictability — Where Might Modern Mathematics Take Me?" and opportunity for questions
  • 12:00-13:00 Lunch and Undergraduate Research Project Poster Exhibition with manned tables giving information about
    • Careers
    • Funding
    • Accommodation
    • Admissions
  • 13:00-13:45 Talk "How to solve it? Examples from STEP and A-level papers" and opportunity for questions
  • 14:00-15:00 Campus tour led by current MathStat and MORSE students / Small group meetings with lecturers and professors
  • from 15:00 Tea, and more information

Please note that the primary purpose of the Campus Tour is to give Offer-Holders the opportunity to meet our current students and to ask them questions in an informal setting. The department's Offer-Holder days are not official University Open Days, and consequently there will be no opportunity to see, for example, student accommodation.


The Offer-Holder Visit Day events take place in the Mathematics and Statistics building; here is how to find us. The University is located adjacent to Coventry (not in the town of Warwick). For directions, campus maps and related information please consult the Visiting the University page. It provides detailed information and links for getting to campus by many means of transportation.

In particularly, you can arrive by train or coach. A list of nearby train stations (including Coventry and Leamington Spa as well as others) and information on bus services connecting them to campus can be found here. Information on a number of option to get to campus by coach is here. It is possible to take a National Express coach to either Coventry or Leamington Spa and continue with local buses from there. Megabus has a stop in walking distance from campus (very cheap, but runs infrequently and needs reservation).

The University is also accessible by car. However, University car parking facilities are likely to be very busy on the day. Please follow directions to Car Park 7 on the main campus and there is parking on the top floor, you will need to take a token and pay on exit.

For details on all means of transportation see the University's Travel Directions page.
