Supporting You


When you join us you’ll become part of an international community where academic and cultural diversity are celebrated. We provide you with the freedom, facilities and support to realise your full potential.

In addition to events and opportunities arranged by the University, there are many chances to organise your own workshops and reading groups, evening social events, cultural celebrations and more.

Welcome to Warwick for postgraduates

We recognise that this isn’t your first experience of university, so we’ve designed an induction programme especially for postgraduate students. Our Welcome to Warwick programme ensures that you’ll arrive to a warm welcome and enables you to choose to attend as many or as few induction 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.

Spaces just for you

The Postgraduate Hub at the heart of campus provides a dedicated community space for all our postgraduates. You can book work rooms for team projects, book the Grad Deck for your own social events, lunches and independent group study meetings, or just catch up with friends. The decking area is perfect for summer get-togethers, while the fully equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable seating make it a great place to relax and socialise at any time of year.

As part of our Library, we have a space reserved especially for our researchers. The Wolfson Research Exchange is open to Warwick’s community of PhD and staff researchers. It offers you a flexible and technology-rich workspace, with an outer area for study and research collaboration. By bringing researchers together, it helps you to connect with postgraduates and staff from different departments who share your research interests.

Within the Exchange, you’ll find bookable seminar rooms for your own academic events, conferences and networks. You can also access training to help you improve your academic skills and become a more effective researcher.
