Welcome

Term Dates

The Full-time MSc course is one full year (October 2022 - September 2023).

The 22/23 academic year begins on Monday 3 October 2022. Postgraduate study does not follow the usual University term dates; you are expected to be available to attend taught sessions throughout the year.

The only exceptions are the following dates when the University is closed:

WMG Induction

The WMG Induction commences on Monday 3 October 2022, details will be confirmed closer to the time, but typical induction events include a Welcome to WMG event, where you will get to meet some key staff, an Essential Academic Information Session, a Meet the Course Leader and peers session, careers and skills workshops, campus tours, social events and more! There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the week. You will also be introduced to the SPA module (Study, Professional and Analytics). To complement the induction face to face activities, there will be an Induction Moodle* which has a lot of important and really useful information. (*Moodle is Warwick's Virtual Learning Environment)


Timetable/ Modules

Once you are fully enrolled and have completed induction week, your personal module schedule will be published via WMG's schedule system.

Once you are booked onto a module, you will automatically be enrolled on that module in Moodle (Warwick's Virtual Learning Environment). This will include a detailed session timetable for the module week(s). You will also be added to an MS Team, within which any online elements will be delivered.

If you have already enrolled you will be able to view further information about modules on the Student Portal: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/wmg/ftmsc/modules.


Key Contacts

During induction week, you will get an opportunity to meet your Course Leader who is responsible for your specific MSc course. You will also be allocated a Personal Tutor in the first few weeks of term. Your Personal Tutor will be an academic member of staff at WMG and will help you to settle into the University and try to answer any questions you may have about the department, and the course. Other key staff you will come into contact with during your year are your module tutors, project supervisor, administrative staff and course management.
