Before You Arrive

We are delighted that you will be joining us here in Education Studies shortly and are very much looking forward to welcoming you to campus.

We have added lots of information to these webpages that we hope will prepare you for the start of your course and also be a useful guide during your first few weeks. If you have any questions, please ask us (you will see email addresses in the Your First Few Weeks section of these webpages) – we are all here to help and we understand that there is a lot to learn at the beginning of your studies and that this can be confusing.

Enrolment process

There are a few important things that you must do to complete the enrolment process – including registering for your Warwick account, uploading a photo, and enrolling on your course.

You can find all the information on the University’s Enrolment webpages here.

Warwick Welcome website

If you have not already done so, take a look at the University’s Welcome webpages. You will find lots of useful information to help you prepare for the start of your course, including the Welcome Week timetable where you will be able to add events to your personal calendar for the week. Also see the Welcome Week section of these webpages for more information about what to expect in Education Studies.

Social media

Follow us on Instagram to find out about everything that is happening in Education Studies! You will hear all about the events and activities taking place – academic skills sessions, careers events, social get togethers, and opportunities for you to get involved and meet people in the Department. X (formerly known as Twitter) is a great place to hear about the latest research being published by Education Studies staff.

Pre-course reading lists

You can find pre-course reading lists for all courses here. These are indicative of reading that might be useful for your course but are not compulsory. They are provided because students often ask for them but please do not feel that you need to read everything on the list prior to starting your course. When you enrol you will be given library access to print and electronic copies of the latest editions of these books (and many more), so if you are considering buying any of these texts before you arrive, please note that older editions would be suitable to start with.


Your student handbook will be added to this webpage shortly before you arrive. We expect this to be in the week before Welcome Week (week beginning 18 September). Please take some time to read through it and refer to it throughout the year. It is a valuable resource!


You can access the timetables for 2023/24 below. Please note that these are still provisional and it is possible, though unlikely, that there will be some changes.
