Travel Information

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 the cosmopolitan Birmingham, 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.

Please note: We do not anticipate any extra difficulties for travel post-Brexit, but more information is available online here, which will be continually updated as circumstances develop. Currently, it is the case that post-Brexit, whether or not there is a deal, all UK or EEA citizens will remain able to visit the UK without a visa for 3 months.
