Discover Pranav's journey at Warwick and what led them to apply for the BSc MORSE.

How did you find out about Warwick?

Warwick is well known globally for excellence in the Economics and Mathematics departments hence it was already on my radar for the universities I wanted to apply to.

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

MORSE is a course unique to Warwick. Having the opportunity to study a multitude of subjects which were my main interests culminating in the optionalities available for various career paths in the future made Warwick an obvious choice over other universities.

How did you feel to be awarded a scholarship?

In one word ‘exhilarating’!

Who was the first person you told when you received the news about your scholarship and how did they react?

My parents were the first to know and I could see they were extremely happy and it was a moment of pride for them.

How did you apply and did anyone help you with your application form and visa application?

Both applications were completed by myself. The application form was relatively easy with the resources available on the University website. The Visa application on the contrary was a bit complicated with the level of details needed.

What was your first impression of Warwick when you first walked around campus?

I really loved the blend of contemporary feel of the University. The ample space in the campus is liberating.

What is the best thing about Warwick?

The diverse community that allows you to connect with other people no matter what your interests are.

What is the worst thing?

I have had a blast so far, a difficult question to answer.

How is your accommodation?

I am currently in Westwood which is an on campus accommodation, a peaceful place set in the midst of nature. The long walk to the central campus allows me to savour the ongoing events in the campus.

Are you a member of any societies? If so, what have you done with them?

I am part of the Warwick Chess Society, Warwick Trading Society and Warwick Economic Summit and am looking forward to actively participating in the activities. The badminton and tennis sports clubs are also a great way to break away from studies and meet students from other courses.

What are your plans when you graduate?

My interests are predominantly in the banking and finance sectors, especially trading but with MORSE I can see there are plenty of other options should I decide otherwise at the end of the course.

What would you say to someone considering applying for an Undergraduate Global Excellence scholarship at Warwick, what would it be?

Be true to yourself and articulate your passions.

What one thing makes you happy about Warwick?

While there are a lot of good things to talk about, the diversity on campus is particularly appealing.
