Why Warwick | Pre-University Summer School

Why Warwick?

We are delighted to offer this opportunity for students to study at the University of Warwick for an exciting ten-night Summer School which will encompass quality Warwick teaching, guest lectures and a fun social and cultural programme. Students will experience living and studying on the beautiful Warwick campus, as well as a trip to experience our amazing capital city and its top sights.

Our academic staff come from the top Warwick faculties. They are passionate about their subjects and sharing their knowledge with our Summer School students. The whole team will work with you to ensure you have an exciting and enriching time studying at Warwick.  

You can choose from one of our three academic courses, allowing you to further develop your subject knowledge, whilst also enhancing the team-working and communication skills that will be vital for your future undergraduate study.

University of Warwick Campus

Students walking outside the Oculus building on campus

Warwick's campus is hard to beat and ideally located on the border of the West Midlands and Warwickshire. It has all the advantages of easy access to the major cities of Coventry (just three miles to the South West), Birmingham and central London but with the peace of a beautiful self-contained and green campus. We are right in the centre of England, easy to reach by rail, car or plane from all parts of the UK and abroad.

The campus is set in nearly 300 hectares of natural countryside with lakes, woods and beautifully tended gardens in which you can relax and escape from the buzz of main campus.

The facilities on campus are world-class with outstanding teaching and learning spaces, a 24-hour library, Arts centre and cinema, brand new sports and wellness hub and restaurants and cafes.

On your first full day we will take you on a tour of the campus to help you familiarise yourself.
