Why I chose Warwick...

I had considered Bath University, Bristol University, and Kings College(London). All my other siblings are younger and have yet to reach university however I am pushing for my young brother now in sixth form to apply for Warwick as he wants to study Economics.

Warwick was my top choice after discovering that it had been performing considerably well in the global and UK university rankings in recent years, further research and I discovered it had one of the best business schools in the country. Furthermore, I was attracted to its central campus layout.

I visited the campus and was blown away by the facilities provided and made my decision to attend.
