Warwick Introduction

We’re a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. But we’re not letting the story end there. That’s because we’re a place of possibility. We’re always looking for new ways to make things happen. Whether you’re a dedicated student, an innovative lecturer or an ambitious company, Warwick provides a tireless yet supportive environment in which you can make an impact. And our students, alumni and staff are consistently making an impact – the kind that changes lives, whether close to home or on a global scale. It’s the achievements of our people that help explain why our levels of research excellence and scholarship are recognized internationally. It’s a prime attraction for some of the biggest names in worldwide business and industry. It’s why we’re ranked highly in the lists of great UK and world universities. All of this contributes to a compelling story, one that’s little more than 50 years old. But who said youth should hold you back from changing the world?

The establishment of the University of Warwick was given approval by the government in 1961 and received its Royal Charter of Incorporation in 1965.The idea for a university in Coventry was mooted shortly after the conclusion of the Second World War but it was a bold and imaginative partnership of the City and the County which brought the University into being on a 400-acre site jointly granted by the two authorities. Since then, the University has incorporated the former Coventry College of Education in 1978 and has extended its land holdings by the purchase of adjoining farm land. The University initially admitted a small intake of graduate students in 1964 and took its first 450 undergraduates in October 1965. In October 2013, the student population was over 23,000 of which 9,775 are postgraduates. Around a third of the student body comes from overseas and over 120 countries are represented on the campus. In 2007, under the Vice Chancellorship of Professor Sir Nigel Thrift, the University launched its new Strategy, Vision 2015. Incorporating a number of ideas generated by the University community itself, the Strategy laid out a number of ambitious goals in research, teaching and learning, internationalization, UK stakeholders and income generation. To date, progress has been made against a number of strategic objectives, including the establishment of a Warwick Prize for WritingIGGY, increase in the value of research awards and the number of highly cited academics at the University, the publication of the second Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform and the development of collaborations and partnerships with overseas universities including Boston University, UCLA, Monash and Jawaharlal Nehru University. Much progress has been made and the University has sought to reaffirm its commitment to its core ambitions while refocusing on how they will be achieved in the light of significant changes in the wider financial and political context. An updated Strategy was therefore published in September 2014.

Warwick MBA Application Essays for 2019-20

Assessing each application fairly and consistently within an extremely competitive field is a difficult task. It is carried out by course selectors (Admissions Tutors) who are academics in departments and by professionals in the Undergraduate Admissions Team to ensure that decisions are made fairly, taking into account as much information about applicants as possible. Applications are assessed on their own merits and in competition with others, as we receive many more applications for most courses than there are places available. Selectors judge the evidence provided on the UCAS application against the criteria set for the chosen course. They take into account existing academic achievements and the context within which they have been achieved (including any exceptional circumstances), predicted grades, the personal statement and the academic reference. Remember that selectors want to hear about you and your interests and potential – there is no one-size-fits-all approach!

As a consequence of the high level of competition for our courses, and because we want to consider your full profile and your potential as an individual rather than simply looking at your actual or predicted grades, it may take some time to communicate a decision to you. We will keep you informed of the status of your application during the admissions process.

Successful candidates will receive an offer which the selector feels is most appropriate, though typical offer levels are listed for each course. We will provide feedback to candidates to whom we are not able to make an offer when this is requested in writing. You should be aware that decisions are made on a highly competitive basis and therefore we are often unable to make offers to all applicants who meet, or even exceed, the typical entry requirements.
