Warwick Business School is part of the University of Warwick, one of the UK’s top universities. Our beautifully landscaped campus is located in the centre of England, within an hour of the city of London and only twenty minutes from Birmingham Airport.

North of Oxford, we are close to cosmopolitan Birmingham, City of Culture Coventry, Regency town Leamington Spa, and pretty Warwick with its medieval castle. The historic battlefields that saw Richard III defeated are just a few miles away, as is the birthplace of Shakespeare and the home of Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Overnight accommodation for the summer school will be in Scarman, Warwick Conferences. Please book your own travel to the event.
