Warwick is one of the UK's leading research universities. We have an international reputation for first class research in the humanities, social sciences and science, engineering and medicine. All our academic staff are active researchers, working in departments or in the specialised interdisciplinary research centres that have long been a feature of the University.

In the most recent Government Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 - Warwick was ranked 7th in the UK based on multi-faculty institutions, and 4 of our department ranked as the leading academic departments for outputs (publications) in the country, and 87% of our research is 'world leading' (3*) or 'internationally excellent' (4*).

At Warwick you will study in an environment where knowledge is constantly being created rather than just described. Master's courses are designed and taught by staff working at the forefront of their subjects; all include a substantial research component, requiring you to plan and manage an original project. If you are thinking of embarking on a doctorate or research Master's you will find a dynamic research environment in which to work, for at Warwick postgraduate students are considered to be an integral and valuable part of the research community.
