How did you find out about Warwick?

I found out about Warwick at an International Universities' Fair organized by the UK Embassy in Bolivia. I also looked at different University rankings, where I saw that Warwick was ranked among the top 5 UK universities in Economics.

Did you consider applying anywhere else? What made you choose Warwick?

I have considered studying in Chile and other Latin-American countries and other Universities from the UK. I was interested in studying at the University of College London and the University of Manchester. Many of my friends have studied in the US and neighbouring countries like Chile and Argentina. Given the high-quality research that Professors at the Department of Economics perform, I decided to study at the University of Warwick.

I have chosen Warwick University for many reasons. First of all, Warwick's Department of Economics has excellent faculty Professors, who are leading researchers in different fields within economics. On top of that, the department has a strong reputation for being among the top economics departments in the UK and worldwide. I also considered the different amenities that Warwick offered and the high levels of student satisfaction that the university holds.

How was the application process?

I applied online with the help of the Inova Education team. They have a broad knowledge about the application process and provided constant support through the application process. I did not face any difficulties.

Have you received any funding?

I studied in Warwick thanks to the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office. I am a recipient of the Chevening Scholarship.

What advice would you give to someone considering applying?

It is a decision you will never regret. The combination of high-quality professors and a team always eager to help you is priceless. Both professors and administrative members are extremely helpful and caring. This explains why Warwick has such high student satisfaction levels compared with similar Universities within the UK. After a memorable year full of challenges and lessons, I strongly recommend applying to Warwick.
