International students

Warwick has a student population of around 23,400, of which nearly 60% are undergraduates. As a result of our global reputation, over a quarter of the student population - approximately 6,400 students - come from outside of the UK and EEA.

Warwick attracts the most able students from over 142 countries - a major proportion of which are from the UK’s largest commercial partners, including China, India, Malaysia, Nigeria and Russia, as well as the USA, EU and Middle East.

With in-depth understanding of different markets, cultures and languages, as well as overseas contacts, international students are ideally suited to supporting a company’s global business needs and can add a significant competitive edge to an organisation.
