Useful information to help with your application

Contextual offers

The University of Warwick is committed to admitting the most talented students from a diverse range of backgrounds. In order to ensure that every application is treated fairly and judged on its merits, we consider an applicant’s academic potential in the context of their educational background and individual circumstances.

We look at:

  • Your school - exam performance and the number of students entitled to Free School Meals
  • Your home postcode
  • Whether you have spent time in care

If you meet two or more of our contextual data indicators you may be eligible for a 2 grade reduction to the standard offer if your application is successful.

For more information on contextual offers, including the full eligibility criteria and how to apply, please click here.

*A Levels. Equivalent reductions will be given to students who are studying alternative qualifications.

Support whilst you are at university

Warwick Law School’s outreach programmes continue through to university where eligible students have the option of accessing additional support whilst they are studying for their Law degree.


  • Students who have received a contextual offer, mature students and students who have child care responsibilities are eligible for the Law School's WP Programme
  • The programme includes lunch meetings, careers talks and socials to help students get the most out of their studies, access competitive internships, scholarships and mentoring opportunities from top graduate employers which are specifically for under-represented groups.


  • Every year the Multicultural Scholars Programme awards 10 scholarships to students starting their Law degree at Warwick who are academically talented, low-income British students from BAME groups.
  • Throughout their degree scholars receive support from a designated personal tutor and the opportunity to take part in careers events, trips to law firms and social events.

Open Days for Students

The Law School talk on Open Days is a fantastic way for prospective students to find out about the variety of Law degrees at Warwick, the admissions procedure and graduate career opportunities. You can also talk to academic staff and current students about any aspect of our courses or student life at the University of Warwick.
