Term Dates 24/25 academic year

The Full-time MSc course is one full year (September 2024 - September 2025). 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 during Christmas week and Easter weekend.

WMG Course Induction

 WMG Induction aims to provide the grounding for your course and will enable you to:

  • Understand the structure and requirements of your course
  • Learn about the academic requirements of a Master's level
  • Get to know other students and key members of staff within the department at social events
  • To understand how to make the most of your year and the opportunities available to you

The detailed timetable of exact sessions will be made available to you shortly after you enrol and there will be a mandatory 'WMG Welcome Event' for all WMG Full-time Masters students in the fabulous Warwick Arts Centre. More details available soon.

Other sessions will include

  • Meet the Course Leader
  • Supporting you at University
  • Careers and skills workshops
  • Campus tours
  • Social events and more!
  • Introduction 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). Please bring your laptop/smart device to induction sessions.

Timetable/ Modules

Once you are fully enrolled (after collecting your BRP card) and have completed WMG's course induction, your personal module schedule will be published via WMG's schedule system. Please note that you will not be booked on to modules until we know you have arrived.

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:

Key Contacts

During your course induction, 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.
