Supporting You


Your wellbeing is hugely important to us. We want you to feel safe, supported and reassured as you become part of our welcoming, international community.

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. This year, many of our Welcome events have taken place remotely online to assist with social distancing.

Wellbeing and Support

We know how important it is for you to feel safe and supported while you’re here at Warwick. Now more than ever, we’re
committed to ensuring you have easy access to many sources of advice and help throughout your time with us. We encourage you to engage with these services, as and when you need them.

Throughout the recent challenges of Covid, we’ve continued to offer our normal services, whether online or in person. Whatever the future holds, we’re well prepared and will always put your wellbeing first.

Wellbeing Team — The Team offers an access point to all Wellbeing Support Services. Following a short consultation, we will refer you to the most appropriate people for support. In addition, the team offers advice and support appointments on a wide range of issues.

These issues may be:

  • practical - difficulties with accommodation
  • emotional - family difficulties, homesickness, support through a disciplinary process
  • wellbeing-related - concerns about your wellbeing and how you can better manage it, or that of another member of the University
  • community safety-related - concerns about security, harassment or crime
