Discovery Day - Tuesday 22nd March 2022
About this event
Our Discover Warwick Day is a great opportunity for you to explore what it would be like to be a student at Warwick. The event will take place on Tuesday 22nd March 2022, in person at the University of Warwick from 10am-4pm.
Academic Taster Sessions
During the event, you can attend lectures across a range of subject areas in a particular stream, designed to give you a mini-flavour of what studying a particular subject is like at Warwick. You will also get to see how different subjects link to each other and discover some of our more niche subject areas. The lectures will be followed up with a Q&A session with our academics and current Warwick students.
There are 5 streams available to choose from this year:
|Engineering & Physical Sciences||Health & Life Sciences||Banking & Finance||Law & Justice||
Creative Arts & Humanities

Join our Banking and Finance stream.||Find out more about how Law impacts many aspects of our lives and our societies with our academics from Sociology, Politics, History and the School of Law.||Join the English, Liberal Arts and Philosophy departments to get a taste of what it is like to study in the Arts Faculty at Warwick.|
Information, Advice and Guidance
You will get the opportunity to attend a number of sessions to help you navigate your way through the process of choosing a course and university; understanding student finance; learning the steps required in applying for a university place; looking at alternative pathways (e.g., Degree Apprenticeships) amongst other.
