Supporting You

Welcome to Warwick for Postgraduates

Welcome to Warwick provides information, events and tips about arriving at Warwick. The events programme lets you choose to attend as many or as few events as you want to.

These will include introductory sessions to find out more about the academic opportunities available at Warwick, skills sessions, and help with getting to know the local area. There are also plenty of social events planned, giving you the opportunity to meet other postgraduates from across the University.

Find out more about our Welcome Week, and the advice and support available.
