Your Student Experience

Our EPP departments are based right in the heart of Warwick’s campus, in the Social Sciences Faculty and Humanities building, next to the Library and Arts Centre.
You can chat about your study and socialise with your coursemates in our shared Common Room with free hot drinks. WiFi is free campus-wide and there’s a range of restaurants, cafes, shops and meeting places.


EPP students have the opportunity to participate in over 250 societies and an excellent range of other exciting extracurricular opportunities. You could be teaching politics in schools, volunteering for pro-bono legal work, debating philosophical concepts or learning a language, and so much more.

Departmental Activities

There are also a wide range of departmental events and activities, for example:

The Economics department hosts a Warwick Economics Lecture Series; welcoming leading figures from the Public and Private Sector to discuss and debate topical issues with students and staff from across the University. Past speakers have included Sir Jeremy Wright, then Attorney General for England and Wales, Ciaran Martin, Director General Cyber Security GCHQ, and Katy Chakrabortty, Head of Policy, Oxfam UK.

The Philosophy department activities include Film Club, Question Time and Balloon Debates, giving students the opportunity to engage with Philosophical issues while socialising and developing valuable skills and networks. Philosophy students also showcase their writing in the student-run magazine Pharos, where they publish their own philosophical works, as well as interviews, module reviews, and society news. Pharos aims to provide a forum for philosophical commentary and analysis that caters to a broad range of interests that extend beyond lectures and seminars.

Be Part of Our Research Community

We offer lots of opportunities to get practical experience during your degree. You can secure financial support for your own research through the Warwick Undergraduate Research Support Scheme to carry out a project of your choosing during your summer holidays. If you are successful, you’ll get research funds and skills development training to help complete your project. You’ll carry out, write up and present research supervised by an academic member of staff.

There are lots of opportunities to publish your writing, opinions or research. You could write an article for Re-Invention, the online, peer-reviewed journal co-edited by Warwick and Monash University, Australia. Many of our students also publish or edit in our student-run newspapers and magazines like Warwick Globalist, Lacuna Magazine, Obiter Dicta or The Boar, writing on topics like world politics, human rights, domestic affairs, and campus life.

Work Experience

The EPP department appoints a number of EPP Student Ambassadors every year to support the department with outreach and Open Day activities. If you come to one of our Open Days you are bound to meet one of our ambassadors as they share their experiences as a current student.

Career Options

EPP student

Warwick has the highest number of student societies of any UK university, so it is easy to join something that you find interesting. I joined the Warwick Handball Club, for which I was Social Executive for a year.

I have also attended many society events, the most remarkable being the Warwick Economic Summit, the Warwick Africa Summit and Warwick Congress."

There’s a Meet the Psychologist series where psychologists come in from their fields, like advertising,
forensic psychology and clinical psychology. They talk about what they do, we ask questions and
we are able to network with them after.“
