We are delighted to announce that two 2023 PPE graduates have won Outstanding Student Contribution Awards (OSCAs) at this year’s graduation ceremony.
The OSCAs recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions of Warwick's students. They not only excel academically, but also find the time to campaign for good causes, fundraise, start small business, and work with local charities.
Find out more about the work Bethan Smith and Kieran Barry won their OSCAs for.
Artificial intelligence is rarely out of the headlines. This week Microsoft founder Bill Gates declared the development of AI “as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, the personal computer, the Internet, and the mobile phone.” One of the researchers working on ways to ensure the next stage of AI development is helpful, not harmful, is Warwick PPE alumna Charlotte Siegmann.
New research from the CAGE Research CentreLink opens in a new window at the University of Warwick reveals the growing influence of wealthy individuals in political affairs, particularly in the affairs of the Conservative party. The report also highlights a growing inequality between the financial resources of the two leading parties, which could have significant effects for democracy over the long term.
The University of Warwick has further cemented its position as one of the UK’s best universities - after being ranked 9th overall by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023. Economics was ranked 1st in the UK, Politics was ranked 2nd and Philosophy 5th, making Warwick an excellent University for the study of PPE.
