How did you find out about Warwick?

I went to a uni preparatory evening school while being in high school. There I heard about Warwick.

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

I also applied and was accepted to UCL, Durham, Manchester and Winchester. My siblings are smaller than me, and they are planning to stay in Hungary for university. Since I was among the first ones who went to a university abroad from my high school, all my hometown friends study in Hungary. I the preparatory school, people usually targeted English or Scottish universities like Warwick, UCL, Durham and Manchester, and a handful of people even got into Oxbridge. I chose Warwick because it is prestigious and relatively cheap compared to London.

Did you get in touch with the department prior to application?

I attended the University Open Days in the summer of 2016.
