School Warwick Visits

Years 7 and 8

Our Year 7 and 8 visits will run from 10 am - 1:00 pm and will introduce your students to the idea of University. They will have the chance to explore campus through activities and explore some of the ideas surrounding why they might choose to go onto Higher Education. Alongside this we will touch on selecting making choices for GCSE.

Years 9 and 10

Our Years 9 and 10 visits will run from 10 am - 1:00 pm and are ideal for students who are already thinking of Higher Education but need a bit more support and direction. We will take the students through the next steps through activities and discussions, as well as discussing alternative routes to University. They will also have the chance to go on a campus tour during their visit.

Years 11, 12 and 13

Our Years 11-13 visits are focused on enabling your students for the next step along their educational journey as they prepare to apply to University. This visit runs from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm.

Each event enables your students to:

  • Hear from the Recruitment Team and current students to gain insight into what Warwick has to offer both academically and socially through a short presentation and Q&A
  • See our campus through a guided campus tour from a student ambassador
