The Use of Contextual Data in our Admissions Policy
We are supporting the University’s aim to widen participation and fair access and welcome applications from students of all backgrounds. We are implementing a contextual admissions policy that recognises the potential to succeed in the context of barriers that students may have encountered. You can find further information on what indicators we are using and why we are using them at the University's study pages.
If you meet the University criteria for a contextual offer you will be considered for an offer of up to two grades below the standard Departmental offer (to a minimum of AAB, including A in A level Maths for Economics (L100) and Economics and Industrial Organisation (L112) or A* in GCSE maths or equivalent for Economics, Politics and International Studies (LLD2). Whether a reduced offer is made, as well as the extent of any reduction in the offer, will depend on both the contextual characteristics and your prior qualifications (such as subjects studied and grades achieved or predicted).

If you gain admittance to Warwick to study a course not run by the Department of Economics, a transfer to an Economics-related degree may be possible early in the first term.
We are not obliged to approve any transfer requests and only do so in exceptional circumstances; and even then we will need to see evidence of high levels of motivation and superb results.
We will automatically reject any application once we are full, whether that application arrives before or after we are full. Our decision is final.
