Applicant Portal

Access your Applicant Portal

Once you’ve applied you will be given access to the Applicant Portal. Look out for an email to register your ITS account. This can take up to 2 working days from when you receive the acknowledgement email and Warwick ID number from the Student Mobility Admission Service.

There are a number of features in the applicant portal that you might find useful during this time:

  • Track the progress of your application
  • Get alerts for any pending actions you may be required to take, for instance, upload documents
  • See core emails and communications that have been sent to you
  • Amend or add details of your agent or nominated contact if required
  • Contact the academic department and admissions to ask questions about your application
  • View a copy of the application form you submitted
  • Withdraw your application
  • Respond to your offer if your application is successful


If you have clicked the ‘Cancel’ button when your application is open, you will have received a warning stating that all of your data will be lost. If you click the ‘OK’ button, your application will be deleted and cannot be retrieved.

You can log back into the Applicant Portal at any time. You will be able to see all of your applications and the status of each one. If you haven’t yet submitted the application, click on the link to open it to review and continue completing it. If you have submitted your application, you will no longer be able to open or change it. We will keep you updated by email about your application.

The applicant portal has a ‘forgotten your password’ link which will email you a new password. Please enter the password manually, as copying and pasting it can sometimes generate an error. If you do not receive the requested new password, this is because it is automatically sent to the email address you used to register an account, and this will have contained an error. If this is the case, please register a new account with a different email address.

If you are entering your personal statement in the space provided on the Employment section of the application form, there is a character limit of 4500 (including spaces). If your personal statement is longer than this, please upload it via the clipboard icon on the same page, which has a file size limit of 2Mb.

If you haven’t yet submitted your application, you can log back into your application and amend the details. Once you have submitted your application you will not be able to amend any details and you will need to contact the Student Mobility Team which is dealing with your application. Their contact details will be in your application acknowledgment email. If you haven’t received it, please contact

We cannot change the email address which is used for your login to the applicant portal. However, all correspondence will be sent to the contact email addresses you provided in your application. If you haven’t yet submitted your application, you can change the email addresses in your application yourself. You can do this by logging into the applicant portal, clicking on your application to open it and editing your email addresses. If you have submitted your application, please contact the Student Mobility Team which are dealing with your application

The offer emails we send out have The University of Warwick letter head at the top so that they can be printed out. Please note that hardcopies of offers are not required for Visa applications.

All required supporting documents should be uploaded at the time of submitting your application. However, if for any reason you are not able to provide all your documents at the time of submitting your application, you need to submit them as soon as possible as your application may not be considered.

For international applicants requiring a visa to study in the UK, we advise that conditions are met no later than 4 weeks before the start of the course to allow enough time to receive a CAS and submit a visa application, and prepare to study at Warwick.

Please use your applicant portal to upload documents. You should be able to upload as many documents as required. If you are experiencing difficulty with the document upload facility, please submit an enquiry through the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page.

The Student Mobility Admissions Service can accept scanned copies of English Language certificates uploaded through the document upload facility. Referees should submit references through the reference portal.

Most students will be required to submit evidence of the following with their application:

  • Photocopy of the passport photo page
  • Academic Transcript
  • Academic Reference
  • English Language Qualification (if you study in a non-English speaking country)

Some departments allow applicants to defer their offer (not application) to a later date or by one academic year. Please contact the Student Mobility Team: to request to defer your offer. Some of the documents submitted as part of your application may no longer be valid for the following academic year.

The University welcomes applications from disabled people and those with specific learning difficulties and considers them on the same academic grounds as other candidates. Many such students have successfully pursued study abroad at Warwick.

In order that the University can provide appropriate advice and guidance on the services and facilities available, it is helpful for us to know in advance if you have a disability or specific learning difficulty.

Potential applicants with a disability should contact Disability Services (tel: +44 (0)24 7615 0641 or email

It is also helpful to approach the academic department concerned before submitting a formal application. There are a number of specially converted rooms in the campus residences for those with disabilities and accommodation is also available for full-time carers.

Once you have received an unconditional offer and you are within 3-4 months of the start of your course you will receive an email to confirm the personal details that the University holds about you. Once you confirm your details are correct, you will be directed through to the CAS request form. Please complete the form as fully as possible as the University will use this form to assess your eligibility for Tier 4 sponsorship. Typically, where no further information is required, these are usually processed within 10 working days of receipt of the request form.
