Frequently Asked Questions

Visit Us

When can I visit?

Visiting Warwick is possible throughout the academic year. There are University Open Days, which provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the programme before application, and Offer Holder Days which provide an opportunity to meet colleagues, experience university-level teaching and understand more about the programme and campus.

Our Offer Holder Open Days in 2019 are Wednesday 27th February 2019 and Wednesday 24th April 2019. You can register now on our Offer Holder Open Day webpage.

If you are unable to attend an Open Day or Offer Holder Open Day, you are very welcome to visit the university at another time. We recommend attending a Warwick Talk and Tour. It is also possible to arrange for a quick chat with one of the PPL office team on these days by emailing us on ppl at warwick dot ac dot uk.

The Course

What Qualification will I graduate with?

You will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (BA).

Please not that the degree is not available as a Qualifying Law Degree. Students interested in a law career in England and Wales can take a one year conversion course, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

In addition, the Solicitor's Regulation Authority (SRA) is introducing a new route to qualifying as a solicitor. Soon, any graduate from any discipline will be able to take the Solicitor's Qualifying Examination (SQE). Find out more on the SRA website.

What are Warwick’s term dates?

Our term dates for upcoming years of study can be found on the Academic Calendar.

Can I apply to study abroad?

Yes, PPL students are able to apply to study abroad in their third year for an intercalated year to extend their degree to a four year course. We have a wide range of partner institutions. Find out more on our Study Abroad page.

Will I be able to write a dissertation?

Yes. In your final year of study, you can choose to write a dissertation. All students with a 2.1 or above in Year 2, can apply to take a dissertation from one of the three disciplines or a PPL dissertation, for projects at the intersection of two of the disciplines. A dissertation is an excellent opportunity to dedicate your study to an area of specialism you are passionate about, to develop your own research skills and to demonstrate to employers that your independent work and communication is outstanding.

What reading and work do I need to do to prepare?

You are not required to do any preparatory reading, but we have provided a page of information that will help you prepare. You will also find links to your core modules and wider reading available to view on our webpages.
