- Apply for the Warwick IFP and submit your supporting documents (Transcript and Personal Statement)
- Ensure that your Personal Statement meets all of our requirements
- Accept a Conditional Offer for the IFP and pay the academic deposit by 31 May 2020
What are we looking for?
Initially, we will be reviewing your Personal Statement, so please ensure that you pay attention to our guidance before making your application.
We want to see a student with lots of academic potential, who has a clear enthusiasm for their particular subject area.
A strong answer to the third question in your Personal Statement will be particularly important.
What is the process?
We'll be automatically considering applicants who have accepted a Conditional Offer and paid their academic deposit for the course by 31 May 2020, and will be shortlisting these applicants based on their Personal Statement and academic background (for the Director's Scholarship). Applicants who have already applied for the course before the launch of the scholarship will also be considered.
We will then invite shortlisted students to take part in an online video interview with either our Head of Department or Director of Studies in late June.
Scholarship winners will be announced by the end of July.
If you have any questions about the scholarship process, please contact the team.
