Decliners Survey


At the University of Warwick we want to develop and improve what we offer potential students. Your feedback will help us to do this, so we’d really appreciate it if you could complete this survey. The survey should only take 10-15 minutes to complete but each of your answers will help us to work on the applicant and offer-holder experience. There are 7 short sections:

1. your application to Warwick;
2. your current study plans;
3. your experience of being an offer-holder and the ways in which Warwick communicated with you in this period;
4. choosing to apply to Warwick;
5. tuition fees and their impact on your decisions;
6. your interactions with Warwick;
7. funding and the impact funding had on your decisions.
