Your course will keep you busy academically, but we want to ensure that you also have an opportunity to enjoy your time on campus and experience many of the UK’s cultural highlights with your new friends.
A key part of the programme are our fantastic student mentors who are all existing Warwick students from a range of degree courses. In previous years our mentors have been rated as one of the best parts of the programme. Our mentors will help students to settle into the programme, join in all the planned social and cultural activities, stay over in Halls and offer pastoral support. They offer a fantastic insight into life as a student at Warwick and also arrange lots of informal entertainment in the evenings.
The programme includes a number of evening events at various venues across our large campus:
- A welcome barbecue on the first evening
- A welcome event and team building
- A fun curry, quiz and karaoke night
- Tenpin bowling night
We will visit the dreaming spires of Oxford, home to the world famous University of Oxford, stunning architecture, the Ashmolean museum and various locations used in the Harry Potter films.
We will enjoy a guided punt on the River Cherwell and the trip will include some free time with your student ambassadors to explore.

I loved the programme and enjoyed spending the days with teachers and my classmates at Warwick. Together we had much fun and we learned a lot from each other. I am very much impressed with the University of Warwick and the contents of their courses.Chen Zhenmu, China
