According to our University Regulations (6.3 Regulations Governing Admission to Courses of Study), a candidate shall not normally be admitted where the total load of all courses pursued by the candidate exceeds one full-time equivalent load, including study at other higher education institutions at any one time.
This means that before you may commence your period of study with us we will require proof that you have completed your current studies or suspended them for the period of your enrolment at Warwick. This may be evidenced through a final transcript, certificate of award, or an official letter from the institution or awarding body confirming that you have completed the work required for your studies (such as proof of submission of your dissertation or thesis). Please arrange for this evidence to be sent to the Postgraduate Admissions, University of Warwick, University House, CV4 8UW in advance of the start date for your course.
