How did you find out about Warwick?

I searched for universities across the UK that offer Mathematics and Philosophy degrees and Warwick was up high there!

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

I also considered Oxford. I have a brother currently at Warwick. Warwick's rating in mathematics is very high. The university seemed very social and welcoming. On the other side, since it's a campus university, it is secluded which helps me concentrate on studying. I liked the fact that the university's founders were pure mathematicians. The fact that it is willing to associate with the industry made it seem more open to new ideas, innovative and because of that exploring the theoretical fields in interesting ways.

Did you contact anyone at the University prior to applying?

I contacted the Jewish Society for more information.

How was your arrival? What were your first impressions of campus?

The opening week was very welcoming and felt reassuring.

What is the best thing about Warwick?

It's a closed campus, this helps me concentrate.

What is the worst thing about Warwick?

The Philosophy department is on the one hand amazing, very open minded and welcoming, but on the other hand there are less supplementary events to broaden the horizon for undergraduates when compared to the Mathematics department.

Have you joined any clubs/societies?

The Jewish Society and the Philosophy Society.

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

Continue studying till a PhD in Pure Mathematics and connect it to Philosophy.

What advice would you give to someone considering applying to Warwick?

If you're into mathematics then it offers as a professional and rigorous approach as Oxford while being less strict with it's students and warmer. If you're into humanities then it is special because it offers a unique less conservative perspective compared to other other UK universities which you will learn that is amazing. If you're into both, well you have the best of both worlds.
