We would like to extend our warmest congratulations on receiving an offer to study with us at the Department of Sociology, University of Warwick!
We'd love to meet you in person and cordially invite you to attend one of our Offer Holder Open Days in 2018. Moving on from school to university doesn’t have to be a daunting process, so to make this transition as smooth as possible, we want to give you the chance to ask all the questions you may have about making this important decision.
At our Offer Holder Open Days, you'll find out more about the Sociology Department, life at University, and hear from both current students and academic staff about studying at Warwick. You'll get the opportunity to explore the University campus, make use of our impressive facilities, and experience what student life is like during term time. Come along and hear about the courses we teach and the projects we are researching at the moment and ask any questions you may have about studying here. And, meet some of our current students, exchange advice and ideas with them, and possibly even make some friends!
The Offer Holder Open Day hosts a range of events around campus, including an introductory session to the Department of Sociology’s activities, modules, and an overview of our degrees. You'll also have lunch with other students and academic staff, join an interactive small-group Q&A session with current students who will share experiences and answer your questions, and take part in a short taster lecture and seminar session on all things topical and sociological, including crime, justice and current affairs – maybe even Brexit!

"Having the opportunity to go along to a post-offer day at Warwick was a great opportunity for me to see the department, meet some of the academics and experience what it would be like to study at Warwick!
Since coming to Warwick, I’ve had a great time studying Sociology. The academics are so passionate about what they teach, and I have been able to take modules ranging from gender to crime and punishment. There is also the opportunity to get involved in many of the societies on campus, providing a great way to meet new people and shape your university experience!"
