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.

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.

ID cards

Your Warwick ID Card will be issued on arrival at Warwick. If you have on-campus accommodation then your ID card will be paired with your on-campus room keys. If you have off-campus accommodation then your ID card can be collected from Student Services in Senate House. For those of you starting your studies remotely, you will not receive your Warwick ID Card until you travel to Warwick. Find out more about Warwick ID Card Collection.
