Before you arrive

Before you arrive at Warwick, there are a few steps that you are required to complete to ensure a smooth and enjoyable transition.

Conditional Offers

If your offer of a place in the Department of Economics was conditional, please ensure that you supply all the necessary paperwork to the Admissions Team as soon as possible, and before you arrive, to ensure your offer is unconditional.

Find out further information on meeting the conditions of your offer.

Online Enrolment

You will receive an email from the enrolment team 4-6 weeks before your course start date, or within a few days of you accepting your unconditional offer if this is later, asking you complete online enrolment. Please do not try to complete Course Registration until you have received this email. It is very important that you follow all of the steps outlined in the email prior to the start of the pre-sessional course on 19th September.

Once you have completed online enrolment you will receive an email with instructions of any further actions required before your enrolment can be completed or to simply confirm your enrolment has been completed. Only students whose Biometric Residence Permit (BRP card) will be received by Warwick under the Alterative Collection Location (ACL) provision will need to attend in-person to collect their BRP.
