Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need to buy any textbooks before I start?

A: No, don't worry, your module directors will advise you which books to buy in week 1. Please note that module websites are still being updated for the forthcoming academic year so may not always indicate the books you should be buying in 2017-18. First year PAIS module websites are on Moodle. You should be automatically enrolled onto core module websites. Optional module websites will become available to you once you have registered/been accepted on optional modules. All of this will be explained further in your lectures in week 1.

Q: How do I sign up for optional modules in BA Politics and BA Politics and International Studies?

A: Please find the full details here

Q: How do I sign up for seminars.

A: Information/details will be made available on the first Monday of term (October 2nd) and outlined in your welcome meeting.

Q: How will I find out my Personalised Lecture Timetable (PLTT)?

A: These are not available yet as you need to register first for your optional modules via the ‘My Warwick Admin Systems’ gadget in Start.Warwick (which opens on 25 September). Your PLTTs will be available that week but will only show core modules until the day after you select your options.

You can find out more information on your personal timetable here.

Q: How do I find out the name of my personal tutor?

Your personal tutor is your first point of contact for general (non-module specific) advice and for any difficulties you are experiencing. The name of your personal tutor will be listed in Tabula by the start of term.

The main Welcome to Warwick webpages can be found here with lots more helpful information about the University as a whole.
