Warwick students: Academic departments

Understand what subjects our students are studying whilst at Warwick.

Our students are drawn from over 33 Academic Departments offering the following undergraduate courses*.

Warwick students currently undertake a more traditional undergraduate study format, with 23 departments offering placement opportunities as part of their course. Each department is responsible for managing the process of matching students who are undertaking course-related placements as part of their degree. If this is something that interests you, we can put you in contact with the relevant academic department.

UK and EU undergraduate students have the opportunity to take a voluntary year out of their degree, in order to undertake a specific work experience opportunity – these students supplement the numbers taking a formal placement year, but vacation and part-time work are enduringly more popular with Warwick students.

  • Centre for Applied Linguistics (CAL)
