University of Warwick

The University of Warwick has more that 12,000 students of which more than 5,000 students come from countries outside of the EU. The University is spread over more than 290 hectares of beautiful natural surroundings with lakes, green open spaces and forested areas. The University campus is actually comprised of 3 distinct campuses: Central campus, Gilbert Hall campus and Westwood campus. Within the University grounds there are shops, restaurants and bars. There is even an on-site hairdresser and bookshop. For those seeking a more varied shopping experience, ‘Europe’s newest shopping capital’ is located just 20minutes away by train. Facilities at the campus include the University Sports Centre, the Warwick Arts Centre and the Warwick Digital Laboratory. University activities are often well-attended by and greatly appreciated by the greater Coventry community and the campus was recently voted the best campus in the UK. When it comes to academics, the University of Warwick has been described by former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair as “…a beacon among British universities for its dynamism, quality and entrepreneurial zeal.” The University is also committed to international co-operation, and has entered into formal agreements with Boston and Vanderbilt Universities (USA); Jawaharlal Nehru University (India); Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and Monash University (Australia). The University also runs a “Warwick in Africa Teaching Project” which gives the students an opportunity to spend a part of their Summer vacation teaching in townships across Africa. With so much on offer the University is well on its way to achieving its goal of being one of the top 50 world universities by 2015.
