Spotlight on - Student Support

We know that the rising cost of living will be challenging for many of you. This hub highlights the ways you can access support.

On 19 October, we announced our initial support package including a 10% increase in Warwick Bursary payments and all PGR students who receive their stipends from the University have been given a stipend increase of up to 10% to match those funded by UKRI. We will continue to develop this with your feedback and will update these dedicated pages.
