EXAMPLES OF RECENT WARWICKRESEARCH


Stopping the spread of u viruses
University of Warwick mathematicians have developed a powerful tool to quantify the spread and infectiousness of viruses like the pandemic H1N1 u strain, which can be used together with modern laboratory techniques tohelp the healthcare system plan its response to disease outbreaks. (Dr Thomas House, MathematicsInstitute)

Half fat chocolate


University of Warwick chemists have found a way to replace up to 50 per cent of its fat content with fruit juice. Scientists have taken out much of the cocoa butter and milk fats that go into chocolate bars, substituting them with tiny droplets of juice measuring less than 30 microns in diameter. (DrStefan Bon, Department of Chemistry)

Student volunteers at festivals


New research nds that university student volunteers are the bedrock of Britains festivals. The growth and increasing popularity of science and arts festivals around Britain is only possible with the help of an army of willing, but unpaid, university student volunteers.

THE UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME (URSS)

The URSS is a fantastic opportunity available to University of Warwick students. With bursaries available it allows you to undertake a research project of your choice within a particular University department. During the summer holidays of 2011 I worked on a research project entitled Welsh Traitor or Patriot? Re-imagining Dylan Thomas with Dr Nadine Holdsworth, examining the paradoxical position held by poet and writer Dylan Thomas in Wales. The research we conducted included a trip to Wales and has contributed towards Dr Holdsworths section of the book she is currently assembling. A fascinating experience, this project taught me how to effectively research a topic, nd and analyse different research material and manage a months worth of research. Apart from being great fun, participating in the URSS has been incredibly revealing. It has assisted me immeasurably with my third year dissertation, has helped me plan my future career and has given me vital experience. Ithas also been wonderful to see all the other projects produced and the varied nature ofWarwicksstudentresearch. I have been very lucky to have been able to participate in such a scheme, its an experience that I would highly recommend to everyone. Judith Durkin, Theatre andPerformance Studies Graduate,2012

At Warwick we actively promote and nurture innovation in learning. Our Institute for AdvancedTeaching and Learning encourages stafftoexplore and develop new and excitingteaching methods. An example of our teaching innovation is in ourSchool of Law. Professor Gary Watt introduced the use of physical movement

intohisteaching as a conscious counter to the laws traditional concern for status and stability. His textbook on the law of trusts brings a supposedly dry legal subject to life with quotes from literary and dramatic sources as diverse as the Sherlock Holmes novels and the lm Lethal Weapon II. He was named as the UK LawTeacherofthe Year in 2009. We celebrate Warwicks best teachers through the Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence. Students and teachers join forces to make nominations. The Students Union introduced its own awards in 2012, the STARS of Warwick. More than 300 nominations were received from students in its rst year. Thequality of ourteaching has been recognised externally bythe Higher Education Academy too. Enthusiasm for their subject isnt conned to Warwicks staff. Our students engagement with their studies is demonstrated through their ability tostudy independently, away fromformallecturesand seminars. Another way in which our students show their passion is through their membership of student societies dedicated to their academic subject.

The main reasons why I chose Warwick were the international reputation of WBS and the course design, which suited me perfectly. In the rst year your core modules give you a good basis of different areas in business studies, which helps you recognise the subjects that interest you most. In your second and third year you can choose modules that design a degree that best suits your future aspirations I chose a little more of marketing and customer service-related modules. Of course, university is not all about studying, and Warwicks extracurricular activities include over 70sports clubs and over 200 societies, so you are bound to nd something of interest. I am involved in AIESEC, astudent-run organisation through which I got to spend last summer volunteering as an English teacher in China. This is just one example of the wide variety ofopportunities to get involved and meet new people it also shows future employers that you are a well-rounded individual.

When I visited the University before applying, Igot a good sense of the community atmosphere on the degree; we are a small course and this means there is a lot of personal attention from professors if you need extra feedback or are interested in research. Because of our small size, most students select their courses from other departments besides CAS and I have loved this freedom of choice to study anarray ofsubjects from history to literature to politics to lm. Ithink CAS students have the opportunity to make more diverse friendships therefore through meeting students and lecturers from other departments and through compulsory Spanish lessons in the dedicatedLanguageCentre. My biggest involvement in extracurricular activities iswith Warwick TV, making short lms. Ive been able to learn how to use recording and editing equipment for free and meet other creatives who are interested in bringing stories to life.

SCHOOL OF COMPARATIVE AMERICAN STUDIES


Comparative American Studies encompasses the pan-American experience, enablingyoutoexplore the history, peoples and cultures of the Americas.

WHY STUDY HISTORY, LITERATURE AND CULTURES OF THE AMERICAS ATWARWICK?


We are consistently ranked in national newspapers asone of the top departments in the UK. While most other American Studies degrees in Britain restrict themselves to the United States, or the US and Canada, we take the pan-American experience asour subject. Our aim is a wider vision in which students will come to recognise the transatlantic experience as a whole, with its patterns of political frontiers and larger divisions based on language, religion orindustrialdevelopment. The School of Comparative American Studies is closely associated with the Department of History, but also has links with the English, Film and Politics Departments, enabling CAS students to work in elds as diverse as the Hollywood cinema, the history of the Caribbean, US social history, the history of slavery, the politics of contemporary Latin America, and contemporary Latin American and US culture. As well as cultivating your knowledge and analytic ability, this course also aims to develop your written and oral skills, and give you prociency in Spanish. We teach Spanish to all levels. Many of our students arrive without any Spanish qualication, so we teach ab initio. We also have appropriate classes for those with AS or A level Spanish. You will be required to take options in Spanish in the rst three years of your degree, and those wishing to gain the highest prociency in the language can spend their year abroad at a South American university.

HISTORY, LITERATURE AND CULTURES OFTHE AMERICAS


Interdisciplinary study of cultures from Chile to Canada fromArgentina to Alaska

UCAS: T704 BA/CAS4 Warwicks BA degree in History, Literature and Cultures of the Americas recognises that within the Americas there are a large number of countries and a rich variety of peoples and cultures. Their history began long before the arrival and settlement of European peoples among the native American communities which had rst populated the lands from Alaska to Argentina. An encounter then began among the different cultures built by Western Europeans and Native Americans. To these two groups was rapidly added a third: Africans who were carried into slavery, bringing their own histories and distinctive cultures. The Americas has been the scene of great cultural complexity and fusion; as well as creativity. In more recent times this can be seen in the contribution to modern literature by writers like Toni Morrison and Gabriel Garca Mrquez. The United States lm industry has produced inuential and sometimes outstanding lms: equally notable, however, have been the lms of Argentina and Mexico. In music the Americas have given us important new forms like Tango, Reggae, Jazz and Rock and Roll, andcharismatic performers like Carlos Gardel andElvis Presley. The rst year of the degree introduces you to basic themes in the history and cultures of the Americas. Allstudents follow interdisciplinary introductory modules and begin modules in the Spanish language. In the second year you will continue studying Spanish and will be able to develop in greater depth those issues and themes that seized your imagination in the rst year. In the second year you also choose your destination for the third year. You will return to Warwick for your nal year, and have the chance to study subjects of your choice in greater detail in specially-designed modules on the history and literature of the Americas such as From McCarthy toElvis: America in the Fifties; The American West; and Histories of Gender in the Americas.

My degree in Chemistry with Management allowed me to take modules on anything from Reactive Intermediates in Stereo-selective Synthesis toProject Management and Economics. In the morning I might be in a laboratory performing a complex experiment, in the afternoon I could be sitting in a seminar focusing on accounting and during the evening Imight be working part-time as a Student Caller. I arrived at Warwick from a school and life in Portugal but soon felt right at home after an incredible FreshersFortnight and joining the Languages Societyand Warwick Film Club which both made use of my hobbies and skills. Later on, I went through some of my rst rigorous application processes and acquired two sought after part-time roles on campus. Not only have these jobs enhanced my CV and made me a lot ofnew friends, but they have also allowed me to fund trips abroad and some amazing nights out both at the Students Union and in nearby Leamington Spa! I thrive on the balancing act that is working, studying and keeping up a busy social life and nowI am looking forward to entering into a graduate job equipped with the best skills and themost fantastic university experience behind me.

I am interested in every aspect of my degree, and each module is taught by an enthusiastic and learned professor, all of whom are just as interested in a students interpretation as their own. The support from my Department is indisputable, and student-lecturer relationships are always friendly and relaxed, which helps to create a sociable and supportive environment in which to study. Perhaps the best part about my degree is that I can go into practically any form of work, so I am able to keep my options open in exploring and expanding my horizons. My experience at Warwick has not only been dened bymy department and degree, but also by my friends and student life at the university. I am on the Executive Committee for the University of Warwick Fencing Club, so I am very involved in the running of the society and meet loads of new people. I fenced before I came to university, and so was delighted to nd a friendly but competitive club here.

Our degrees are accessible enough and sufciently rigorous to allow students who come to us with relatively little experience of Classical Studies to appreciate and enjoy the richness of antiquity, while also enabling those who have some prior experience to develop their knowledge and skills further and innew directions. Classical studies have always been interdisciplinary, and the courses at Warwick reect the full range of Greek and Roman culture, from religion and myth to philosophy and history, from art and architecture topoetry and drama. Many of our modules break the traditional limits of the discipline by inviting students to consider connections between the Classical world and the civilisations of Europe, the Americas, and theMiddleEast. We also emphasise traditional skills: all students either begin studying an ancient language or develop their knowledge of Latin and Greek to a higher level. Final-year students have the opportunity to research a dissertation on a chosen topic with the guidance ofa supervisor. You will be supported by a full range of academic resources including electronic resources and research tools, in addition to the well-stocked University Library, and, of course, your tutors.

COMPUTER AND BUSINESS STUDIES


The fully integrated way to combine computing and business

UCAS: GN41 BSc/CSBS Industry frequently reports that IT graduate employees need to be not only technically competent but also business aware and people sensitive. Thisisin response to difculties that arise through a narrow, purely technical, outlook, and acknowledges that IT is becoming much more assimilated into business operations and strategy. The Computer and Business Studies course combines these two disciplines throughout, enabling an in-depth integrated understanding that prepares you well for these demands. The course draws on a wide range of existing and custom-designed modules from the Department of Computer Science and Warwick Business School. Whilst encouraging academic rigour at all times, it offers early exposure to practical computing and relates in many ways to issues in IT as they are experienced in organisations: particularly useful for IT consulting, technology risk management, technology integration, business intelligence management and business systems analysis. Your individual project in the nal year offers an opportunity to integrate and apply ideas from across the course, and it can be based on real-world situations. Optional modules give you considerable freedom to part-specialise in either computer science or business; by your nal year you could choose up totwo-thirds of your modules tailored to your interests and aspirations.

What I love most about my course is the exibility it affords me in terms of academic eld in my rst year I had the opportunity to sample courses from both the Economics and Politics departments before choosing one of them as a major. I also think the people at Warwick are very knowledgeable and have an international outlook, shown by the high level of academic and cultural forums and societies across campus. I have been involved in organising an international development summit, which has given me a great opportunity to engage with different ideas. Iwould also say the campus achieves the perfect balance between providing study environments and spaces and being host to a number of places to socialise on campus.

One of the things Ive most enjoyed about studying English at Warwick is the option to make my learning interdisciplinary. Imabout to embark on a creative project for my Shakespeare module and, instead of just writing an essay, Im planning to abridge one of Shakespeares plays and make it into a radio drama. My afliation with Warwicks student radio station RaW has given me the facilities I need toachieve thisambitious idea! The Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) has strongly shaped my time at Warwick. Theirapplied performance opportunities have shown me that Warwick is at the forefront of progressive ways of teaching. IATL gave us a budget to research and document global warming and, inspired by our ndings,we created an interactive performancepiece.

Im currently in my second year of studying lm at Warwick and there hasnt been a day yet where I felt I made the wrong decision. The Department is made up of passionate academics and equally passionate students, creating a close-knit, friendly environment and fascinating seminars. Warwicks course is among the best in the country: the library is well-stocked with indispensable lm books, the modules offer a comprehensive overview of lm history, cultures and theories, and, whenever possible, we are shown movieson the original lm print. Its details such as these that make the experience so rewarding, but opportunities at Warwick arent conned to your department. There are societies all around campus tailored to your needs, and you will nd that the University is falling over itself to offer you different ways to express yourself. For a lm student, its heaven: Ihave a lm talk show on Warwick radio (a.k.a. RaW), Ive collaborated on projects for Warwick TV and Ive made invaluable contacts through FilmSociety events. Theultimate sentiment Ive taken from Warwick, although clich, is that your experience is what you make ofit. With the amount on offer to you, theres noexcuse nottomake it the best you can.

I chose Warwick because of its reputation: I thought Id get a great education from the History Department and Ive been proved right. One of the things Ive liked best is the variety within the course, giving you the opportunity to explore a wide range of subjects you take a particular interest in. Studying French in my rst two years is an example of this, helping to make my history degree stand out. Ive found the Department full of helpful and engaging individuals, ready to iron out any difculties that are inevitable at times for a demanding course at a top university. Ive been surprised at what Ive ended up enjoying most, sokeepan open mind! This goes for all areas of Warwick life. There are plenty of things to get involved with outside your studies, whether its a society, sport or volunteering project. The diversity of people, activities and courses here atWarwick make it an environment to suit andmeetallsorts. If youre thinking of applying here, come and have a look around its important to imagine yourself here for three or four years. When I rst visited over three years ago, the idea of going to university nally became a reality and it helped to make me less nervous about the transition. If you choose Warwick, you will have chosen to study history in one of thebest departments in the country, inareally friendly environment.

The History of Art Department has a diverse and vibrant group of staff with a wide range of specialist interests, which has proven particularly useful when researching for assessed essays and my dissertation. Most importantly, studying History of Art has facilitated my decision to work with contemporary art, and has provided me with a solid grounding for postgraduate level education, as well as the skills that I require foremployment in thearts sector.

Immerse yourself in the art and language of Italy

UCAS: V350 BA/Hart History of Art at Warwick will introduce you to an extremely rich and varied range of subjects in the history of Western art, from Post-Impressionism to medieval architecture, from the Italian Renaissance to contemporary installation. We stress the internationalism of the discipline: this is the only art history programme in the UK to offer a full term based in Venice. The Venice term presents an unparalleled opportunity to study artworks rst hand in their original contexts, from Renaissance masterpieces to the contemporary showcase of the Venice Biennale. Our core teaching emphasises a diverse array of approaches including aesthetics, philosophy, the social history of art, and the technical analysis of artworks. The student experience is further enriched by our close links with galleries andmuseums such as the Universitys Mead Galleryand the Royal Academy. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/V350

UCAS: V3R3 BA/HAwIt Essential subjects: A/AS/Higher level foreign language normally required, but if this is not possible, evidence of competence in the study offoreign languages will be considered This three-year joint degree is designed for students primarily interested in art history but also keen to develop a high level of competence in Italian language. It offers integrated linguistic training and facilitates a much deeper engagement with Italian art during the Venice term in the third year. The rst year is focused around the Survey modules in the History of Art, a core module on Modern Italian Language, and further optional modules in the History of Art. In the second year students will continue to develop their Italian through a further, higher level language option. They will also take a range of options in the History of Art, some of which will focus specically on Italian art. The nal year opens with the autumn term spent in Venice, where students will normally undertake research for their dissertations while also studying an intensive module on Art in Northern Italy; it continues in Warwick in the spring, with advanced study of an art-historical Special Subject and either further study of Italian language, or another module in the Italian Department. Finalists should emerge as effectively bilingual, and highly educated in Italianartand culture. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/V3R3

I chose to study at Warwick because I was impressed by the campus facilities and atmosphere when I came to an open day. I was also really drawn to the friendly staff in the Italian Department. I love my course because Ive been able tochoose from a very wide range of modules from pure language modules through to modules on history, literature, international relations and even theories of foreign language teaching. Ivebeen able to explore my very diverse interests in depth. Outside of academia Ivebeen exposed to a vast number of other opportunities and tried many things Iprobably couldnt have done had I not been here. Forexample, Ive gone from being one of the least sporty people around to competing nationally in Latin and ballroom dancing, Ive been on the Executive Committee of the World@Warwick society for two years, Ive earned qualications in Leadership and First Aid, and Ive conducted an in-depth research project on female migration within Italy. Warwick has allowed me to learn so much about the world and also about myself and has denitely shaped me into the person I am today, with some very clear goals for the future and a strong sense ofthe impactIwould like tohavein society.

What Ive enjoyed most about my course is the breadth and variety of modules on offer. As well as the standard modules like the Law of Property and Contract, youll also nd modules such as Shakespeare and the Law, and Law and Literature, both of which critically analyse the role literature plays in our understanding of the law, and also more practical modules like Human Rights inPractice. I think Warwick really stands out for the vast range ofextra-curricular activities on offer. Since being here, Iveskydived from 15,000 feet and hitchhiked to Vienna for charity. Ive also been involved with the AfricanCaribbean society, presented a radio show on campus, performed at Music Concerts in the Arts Centre, played a lead role in a Shakespeare play and volunteered at a local Foodbank. There are so many opportunities foryou to get invoIved! Id denitely recommend applying to Warwick. In addition to the high quality teaching and great extracurricular activities, with its very diverse student body, I have made lifelong friends from all over the world.

The four-year LLB course is designed for those wishing to study more modules at Warwick than is possible in the normal three-year course. Many students nd the latter too short and welcome the chance to diversify orfocus their studies. Within a very exible framework, you can build a coherent individualised degree course, taking more modules from the wide choice within the Law School, and up to four related modules from outside Law. Because of competition for LLB places, you will need a clear plan for using the extra year in order to be considered for an offer; applicants who do not receive an offer will, however, be considered for the threeyear LLB, with the possibility of transfer to a four-year course. The course structure is similar to the three-year LLB, but you take up to four non-law subjects between years two and four. Also, in year four, a dissertation may be submitted in place of a half or full module. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/M101

I cannot recommend Warwick enough to anyone who wants to go into the Life Sciences for so many reasons: the topics are engaging and interesting and in the later years you can be selective in what you want to study based on what you enjoy; the labs are always well equipped and you perform a wide variety of experiments ranging from genetic analyses to viral assays; and the tutors are friendly and happy to give yousupport on any matter. In terms of extra-curricular activities there are societies, sports clubs and committees for just about anything you could think of. I am a member of the Badminton Club with whom I am going on a tour in April, and I also play squash and tennis when I can. I play my part in student politics by being a Faculty Representative whereby I sit on, mainly, academic committees, but also Student Council to discuss and consider where the University is headed. Of course, this means Im extremely busy having to balance my academic and extracurricular commitments, but I love itandIknowyouwill too!

I considered Warwick because of the Mathematics Departments impressive reputation. I worried about how I would cope with the new advanced materials, butmy fears were soon resolved when Istarted the course and found how much support the Department offered to help students acclimatise. As well as regular tutorials with our personal tutors, we had supervisions with a 4th year to help withthe development of university maths. My favourite aspect of the course is the exibility inchoosing modules. There is a huge choice of maths modules, and also additional areas of study outside the subject. In the 3rd and 4th years I have 100% choice in the modules I take from a wide rangeofmathematicalelds. Being a student at Warwick has been even better than I expected. Outside of studies Warwick really offers something to everyone. I have had the opportunity to try new sports and such as Dodge ball and belly dancing, where I have made some amazing friends and attended tours and social events that I will always remember. I have travelled to Prague and Berlin with Dodge ball, which have been amazing holidays at budget student prices. I know I would never have tried these things before coming to Warwick.

The accelerated graduate-entry MB ChB programme is a challenging, but extremely rewarding,programme that will give you medical knowledge, develop your clinical and researchskills, attitudes, awareness and enthusiasm for a vocation in any eld of medicine.

WHY STUDY MEDICINE AT WMS?


WMS offers the largest graduate entry MB ChB programme in the UK. Our exciting and innovative programme is supported by a range of great facilities including the purposebuilt Medical Teaching Centre, the fully equipped Biomedical Learning Grid, and our range of Gunther von Hagens plastinated specimens at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. The course features early involvement with patients and focuses on developing both clinical and communication skills, grounded in respect forthepatient. We emphasise values-based medicine and appreciate the important contribution that other health professionals bring to the clinical team. The programme aims to ensure that you understand the scientic basis of medicine and are able to pull together relevant concepts in a focused approach to clinical problem solving. There will be blocks of community based work, work in local hospitals and the opportunity to undertake a medical project in a setting of your choice during your elective period. T he programme also offers the opportunity to develop leadership skills relevant to the complex clinical working environment and for those who may wish to pursue a clinical academic career. W ith an emphasis on global health throughout the four years you will develop an understanding of this concept relevant to both local and internationalpopulations. T he General Medical Council (GMC) states in Tomorrows Doctors that MB ChB graduates should have followed a student centred curriculum that allows them to approach learning based on curiosity and exploration of knowledge, rather than its passive acquisition. To facilitate this WMS uses case based learning that enhances the clinical application of the material. You will work in a small group, remaining with this group for at least the rst year.

You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK. It is not currently possible for a WMS graduate to complete F1 abroad or obtain the CoE necessary for full registration withthe GMC. You will emerge from your Foundation Years as a doctor ready to move into your chosen eld of specialisation. This may be within the NHS, perhaps working in a hospital specialising in surgery or psychiatry, or after further training, you may wish towork as a general practitioner. Other opportunitiesmay lead you to specialise inpathologyor medicalresearch.

HOW IS THE PROGRAMME TAUGHT?


Our MB ChB programme is taught mainly at TheUniversity of Warwick in the early years, with some sessions located in our partner Trusts: the George Elliot Hospital in Nuneaton, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW), Redditch Hospital and Warwick Hospital. You will attend lectures and work in small groups, guided by clinicians or members of academic staff. Assessment will include both written and practicalexaminations. Clinical attachments are mainly based in acute hospital settings, normally in our partner hospitals, and in primary and community care placements ranging from GP practices to outreach projects. Theaim is that you receive a well rounded experience from a designated consultant usually a student pairis attached to a pair of consultants. An elective period spent either in a clinical setting in the UK, or abroad, is offered in the nal year. The aim of this period of study is for you to engage in selfdirected learning in a eld of your choice providing a time for self-reection, personal development andaccess to medicine in a different context.

I love MORSE because it offers me so much exibility. I get to choose modules in so many different elds such as Business, Finance, Mathematics, Statistics, Economicsand more, which really allows me to explore my interests. Since I enjoy Business and Statistics modules the most, I am now specialising in these modules in my nal year. I was part of the Executive Committee of the Singapore Society in my second year and it was a great experience organising socials for my society. It was also heartening to celebrate local festivals with fellow Singaporeans here, despite being so far away from home. I also play oorball for the Warwick Floorball Club. I always believe sport is an excellent way to meet new people and Im really glad to have made many new friends from many different countries through oorball. I have also learnt a lot about the different cultures from my friends. Warwick has a great diversity ofpeople and a beautiful campus. It has really been an eyeopening experience which I have never onceregretted.

MORSE
MORSE stands for Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics. It is a single honours degree in mathematics and its practical application to business, nance, economics, and other topics. MORSE relates pure mathematics to these modern applications, instead ofpursuing more traditional areas of applied mathematics.

WHY STUDY MORSE AT WARWICK?


MORSE is a Warwick invention. It was created in the mid-1970s by a team of far-sighted academics and has developed into a agship degree programmesince then. MORSE at Warwick is a coherent programme, designed from the ground up with modules specically intended for MORSE students. Our curriculum contains a balance of mathematical theory and its applications with a special emphasis on the links between theory and practice. Thecourseequips you with transferable skills, including analyticalthinking, crossdisciplinary communication and mathematical andstatisticalmodelling. All modules are taught by subject specialists. Thecurriculum is organised by the Statistics Department in close collaboration with the Mathematics Department, the Economics Department, and the Business School. All four departments have consistently been awardedthe highest grade in external assessmentsoftheirresearch. Each student is assigned a lecturer or professor aspersonal tutor. In addition, department membersengage students in informal discussions. We offer an unusual level of exibility regarding optional modules and the total load. Flexibility for changing between the threeyear andthe four-year course extends until theendofthesecond year. Our four-year degree can exempt future actuaries from a number of the Institutes ofActuariesexaminations. Transfer to the degree Mathematics and Statistics (see page 173) is straightforward at any time up to arrival at Warwick and can also be applied for later. All our programmes attract well-qualied homeandoverseas students.

I was initially drawn to study at Warwick by the fantastic course structure. As a joint honours student, I was able to specialise in either Literature or Philosophy according to my own taste, as well as having the opportunity to study these subjects in combination with one another. Im currently working on a dissertation which draws from both disciplines on a topic of my own choosing. The freedom of choice on this course is exceptional. Whilst studying at Warwick Ive met the most motivated, talented and interesting people. Before coming here, I was fairly shy, and one of the greatest benets Ive found is that Ive come to love meeting new people and integrating with my undergraduate community, aswell as the postgrads and staff that Ive met here. Ive found this particularly through my involvement with the Philosophy Society, for which I am currently President. Notonly has this allowed me to get involved with organising some fantastic events, but its been an invaluable chance to meet many people who share my interests. Overthe last three years both my course and the people Ive met at Warwick have been integral to making meacondent, happy person!

PHILOSOPHY WITH PSYCHOLOGY


The intersection of Philosophy and Psychology

UCAS: V500 BA/Phil Essential subjects: GCSE (or equivalent) Mathematics (minimum B) or AS level MathematicsC. This course is built around a thorough grounding in the key texts that constitute the core traditions of the discipline plus study of the problem areas that dominate contemporary philosophy. Core modules cover both texts and problems and amount to about 40% of the degree. The rest of the degree comprises option modules taken from a wide range of specialist interests in both the history of philosophy and in contemporary areas of research thematically organised. The curriculum provides an apprenticeship in the skills of analysis, research, writing and communication required for advanced work in Philosophy. Intensive tutorial work in the rst year module Doing Philosophy provides supervised engagement with the skills of close reading of complex texts and the preparation of well-crafted philosophical prose. It also lays the foundation for Honours level work and for the research-led dissertation which is a 25% optional component of the nal year. Submitting prepared essays in lieu of formal examinations in up to 50% of Honours level modules provides further opportunities for students to employ valuable research work in their assessment. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/V500

UCAS: V5C8BA/PhiPsy Essential subjects: GCSE (or equivalent) Mathematics (minimum B) or ASlevelMathematicsC. This degree course capitalises on particular strengths of the Philosophy Department in the areas of Philosophy of Mind, Epistemology and Metaphysics. It has been put together with students in mind who are interested in a thorough grounding in these core philosophical areas (and their history), but it also reects the fact that work in these areas is increasingly informed by a dialogue with work in Psychology on the development of, and mechanismsunderlying, for example, visual perception, conceptualthought, language and action. Please note: This course does not confer GBR status by the British Psychological Society. It is suitable for students wishing to combine an interest in Philosophy with a study of areas of Psychology that might bear on philosophical questions. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/V5C8

PHILOSOPHY AND LITERATURE


Examining the relations between literature andphilosophy

UCAS: VQ52 BA/PhiLit Typical offer: A level AAB + AS Level B Essential subjects: A level English Literature (normally grade A) preferred. Designed for students in whom philosophical and literary interests are closely combined; it is not a joint degree in two parts, but rather attempts to explore areas of commonality. Warwick has pioneered the exploration of the relationship between Philosophy and Literature for many years: the activities of the Centre for Research in Philosophy, Literature and the Arts provides an intellectually exciting context for the undergraduate degree course, and an effort is made to accommodate the special interests and gifts of individual students. Careful attention is given to the integration of the different areas of enquiry from the students point ofview, both in formal academic contexts and in more informal ones such as the annual residential Reading Weekend. The degree provides an introduction to the basic problems and methods of Philosophy, and there is a close examination of a range of literary genres and texts. Ultimately, students examine a number of major works in which philosophical and literary aspects are almost inseparable, and which provide a route into current philosophical debates about thenature of literature and philosophical thought. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/VQ52

PHILOSOPHY WITH CLASSICALCIVILISATION


The intersection of Philosophy and the study ofClassicallanguage, literature, culture and history

UCAS: V5Q8 BA/PhiCC Essential subjects: GCSE (or equivalent) Mathematics (minimum B) or AS level MathematicsC. The historical roots of Western Philosophy are in ancient Greece, and its direction was xed for centuries by the ways it was assimilated, modied and used in Latin culture. This degree is designed for students who wish to explore facets of the ancient civilisations that lie beyond the scope of purely philosophical studies. Students will nd that a study of the world in which Philosophy developed sheds light on the character of Philosophy itself. They may focus their work in Classics either on language and literature or on cultural and historical topics, or they may choose a more varied assortment of subjects to suit their own interests. The degree is a variant of the degree in Philosophy, and the cores of the two degrees are very similar. The proportion of the degree that is devoted to Classics will vary with students choices of options, but will occupy atleastaquarterof their course and at most a half.

PHILOSOPHY, POLITICS AND ECONOMICS (PPE)


PPE integrates the study of philosophy, politics, and economics, and explores questions from different perspectives where they overlap. Many pressing issues today such as climate change, the reform of the international nancial system, the distribution of income and wealth, democracy and democratisation are best understood by combining insights from more than one discipline. By studying PPE, you will acquire the analytical skills and the theoreticalandfactual knowledge necessary to address these issues.

WHY STUDY PPE AT WARWICK?


The PPE course provides a rigorous introduction to all three subjects in the rst year, after which you may choose to specialise in two subjects or continuetostudy all three. A feature of the Warwick PPE course is the bridgemodel: you do not just study the three disciplines independently, but are given ampleopportunities both formal and informal tocombine insights fromthe different disciplines. Each of the three partner departments has an international reputation with a large academic staff. We can offer students a diverse menu of optional modules, allowing students to follow their own interests. Since our staff are active in research at thefrontiers of their subject, teaching will draw onstate-of-the-art knowledge. There are many extra-curricular events and opportunities that further enrich the student experience, such as lectures given by distinguished visiting academics, student-run events organised bythe PPE Student Society, the Warwick International Development Summit, theWarwickEconomicsSummit and others.

The interdisciplinary study of problems of political economy, public policy, and social justice

UCAS: L0V0 MOD/PPE3 In the rst year you study introductory foundation modules in each of philosophy, politics and economics, plus quantitative techniques (mathematics and statistics) and an option. Most students choose their option from one of the three partner departments, such as World Politics, Introduction to Ancient Philosophy or Ideas of Freedom or The World Economy; but it can equally be from another department, for example, History orPsychology, or a language. At honours level, students choose a Pathway. OnaBipartite Pathway, you specialise in two subjects. Onthe Tripartite Pathway, you continue to study all three as core. Examples of core modules in the second year are Econometrics, Ethics, and a module in the history of political thought. In your third year you must take two interdisciplinary keystone modules. These modules are taught jointly by faculty from all three departments and aim at bridging the three disciplines. They focus on important areas of application, for example the ethics, politics, and economics of the governance of the global economy or policies on climate change.

PHYSICS AND BUSINESS STUDIES


Thinking like a physicist makes good business sense

UCAS: F300 BSc/PhyS, F303 MPhys/Phy The main aim in physics is to identify fundamental laws and show how these may be invoked to predict and explain many natural phenomena. Part of the subjects appeal is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few basic laws which apply everywhere and to everything. The structure of the course reects the structure of the subject. All students take core modules, which concentrate on the fundamental principles of classical and quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, thermal and statistical physics, waves and the properties of matter. They then choose further optional modules, which explore the applications of the principles to explain phenomena observed in the different areas of physics. These include astrophysics, condensed matter physics, plasmas and particle physics. It is possible to select a proportion of modules from outside of physics. Over the course about half of themodules are chosen from the options. We actively encourage students to explore outside the eld of physics. As well as exposing students to alternative ways of thinking, outside modules can help set physics into the context of science as a whole. For more information on this course please visitwww.warwick.ac.uk/F300 or www.warwick.ac.uk/F303

UCAS: FN31 BSc/PhyBS The degree is designed for students who enjoy physics but wish also to develop an interest in management and business. Warwick Business School, which is a leading Business School in the country, haspioneered the teaching of management science to undergraduates at British universities. During the rst two years of the degree, students are based in the Department of Physics. Students take the core physics modules and an introductory module on business. Students transfer to the Warwick Business School for their third year. Theychoose four modules from the lists of those available. Eachmodule lasts the whole year and carries 25%ofthe nal year credit. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/FN31

MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS


Universal skills and the route to theoretical physics

UCAS: GF13 BSc/MathP, FG31 MPhys/MP Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study atuniversity. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in topology one of the purest branches of mathematics. The Warwick joint honours course is now among the best-established in the country with around 50 students entering the course each year. A signicant proportion of modules from both contributing departments have been designed primarily for joint degree students. It is possible at the end of the rst year to transfer toeither of the single honours courses, provided you perform well enough in the end of year examinations. Warwick is strong in research in a number of branches of mathematics and physics, and is well-placed to offer accounts of those developments likely to be of most interest to joint degree students. These include modules on the theory of complex systems, on the weather, on the modelling of biological systems andon theoretical physics.

The main reason I love my course is because of the world-renowned tutors in the PAIS Department who really engage you in their specialist areas. I have gained a rm theoretical grounding of politics throughout my degree and in my second and third years, I have specialised in areas that interest me such as international security and US politics. Mytutorsand the PAIS Department have been extremely supportive and encouraging, both academically andpersonally. Outside my course, I have enjoyed participating in a number of extracurricular activities. I have reported forthe student newspaper and radio station, taken part in the One World Week fashion show with the Japan Society, and organised talks and panel debates for societies such as Amnesty International. Organising the Warwick International Development Summit (WIDS) as Head of Talks has been my highlight of Warwick; I made many likeminded friends from around the world and gained important skills and knowledge. Organising the conference also enabled me to interact with a diverse group of professionals from around the world who gave me invaluable career advice. Aside from its academic excellence, societies are what make Warwick so special and I thoroughly recommend getting involved in societies from the very beginning, as it will undoubtedly enrich your university experience and createlifelongfriendships.

Psychology is still in its infancy within the world of science which means that everything is susceptible to question and nothing is set in stone; weare always atthe cutting edge of the subject. I knew Warwick was the university for me as soon as I reached campus on my rst visit and its my biggest recommendation to any prospective student who is still unsure. The vibe and energy on campus is unavoidable and will have you hooked straight away. During my time here, I have taken the opportunity to get involved in something Ive always been interested in; radio. RaW (Radio at Warwick) is a multiple awardwinning, entirely student-run station and is a great platform for beginners or a stepping stone for those with previous experience.

MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS


Theoretical and practical aspects of modern statistics

UCAS: GG13 BSc/MathS, GGC3 MMathStat Our single honours degree in Mathematics and Statistics will teach you to solve practical and theoretical problems about the data that arise in a huge variety of applications. It will teach you to apply modern mathematical and statistical methods to discover patterns and establish knowledge basedonobservations. The rst two years are common to the three-year (BSc) and the four-year Integrated Masters scheme (MMathStat), and you will largely follow a xed set of modules which provide essential mathematical and statistical foundations. In your third year you will choose half of your modules from statistics, the other half from further options in statistics, mathematics and many other areas. The four-year integrated Masters enables you to specialise in your last two years in one of three streams: Advanced Statistics, Biostatistics, orComputational Statistics. You can also take an intercalated year, working for ayears paid employment in industry or in a research establishment in a relevant area between thesecond and third years of your degree. Such a year canalsobe spent abroad. For more information on this course please visit www.warwick.ac.uk/GG13 or www.warwick.ac.uk/GGC3

My favourite thing about the course is its exibility Ican do the modules that I want do, as well as taking an external module, which allows me to gain a different perspective on a chosen topic. Thisexibility means that I can follow my interests and not spend time doing a module that doesnt appeal to me. This essentially allows me to tailor my degree in the second and third years. For example, I really enjoyed my second year modules Performing Ethnicity, Culture and Identity andPerforming Masculinities, and Ive followed through some of the key aspects introduced to me in these modules to other modules, and now myDissertation encompasses some of those topics. Since joining Warwick, I have become part of societies that I would previously have never imagined. Ive tried something new each year (something which I highly recommend!) and have taken part in charity events and socials which Ive really enjoyed. I think the best thing about the societies at Warwick is their inclusivity Iknow thats a broad statement but Ive never felt out of place or unwanted at a social. Forinstance, I took part in the Tennis Societies Charity event earlier this year, forexample, despite having zero eye-hand coordinationandonly knowing onememberofthesociety!

APPLICATION AND ADMISSION

Warwick has a tradition of making a high-quality and challenging university education available to those who are capable of beneting from it. Our recruitment and application processes are designed to support students with the potential to succeed at the University and, once students have enrolled, weprovide an environment in which they can realise their full potential. Our undergraduate admissions policies and procedures are summarised in an Admissions Statement, which is published at www.warwick.ac.uk/go/ug under How to Apply This section contains some general information about applying to study for a full-time undergraduate degree at the University of Warwick, and shows where you can nd more detailed information. It is important to note that sometimes we have to make changes to the courses and requirements published here, as this prospectus is printed well before the start of the admissions cycle. Whilst every effort is made to ensure its accuracy at the time of publication, we endeavour to keep candidates fully informed of any changes via Warwicks online Prospectus www.warwick.ac.uk/go/study, as well as UCASs online Course Search facility www.ucas.com. You should check these websites before completingyour UCAS application.

Mathematics/Science. A pass at grade C or above in GCSE English Language (B for courses in the Social Sciences Faculty) and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualication, satises this University requirement. For many courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specic entry requirements.

ASSESSING YOUR APPLICATION


Assessing each application fairly and consistently within an extremely competitive eld is a difcult 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, predicted grades, the personal statement and the academic reference. Please see www.warwick.ac.uk/go/study for hints and tips on completing your application form, but remember that selectors want to hear about you, your engagement with the course, your interests and your potential there is no one-size-ts-all approach. As a consequence of the high level of competition forour courses, and because we want to consider your full prole 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 having given the whole applicant prole careful consideration. Typical offer levels for 2013 entry (or indicative offer levels for 2014) are listed for all courses. Typical offer levels for 2014 will be available online at www.warwick.ac.uk/go/ ugoffers from the autumn of2013. However, individual offers may differ.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
Warwick offers a number of intensive, challenging and stimulating undergraduate degree programmes. As a result, it is an advantage for applicants to have previously pursued a broad programme of study and to possess strong analytical and advanced problemsolving skills. Your application should show how your previous study and experiences have given you a keen interest in the subject for which you have applied. Additionally, a number of our courses require previous advanced-level study in a particular subject or subjects. Any specic subject requirements will be listed within individual departmental sections as well as on the Warwick and UCAS websites. All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in the English Language and in

www.warwick.ac.uk AppLICATIon And AdmIssIon 179

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.

YOUR QUALIFICATIONS
We welcome applications from candidates offering many different qualications. 2013 typical offers (orindicative offers for 2014) for the most common qualications are listed under each course entry. You should check the listed entry requirements for the course you are interested in. Ifyou have questions regarding the acceptability of a particular qualication or the level of achievementrequired, we encourage you to contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team before you apply. Please remember to consult the online 2014 offers at www.warwick. ac.uk/go/ugoffers before nally submitting your application, as typical offer levels may change before the new cycle begins (although we will not change the typical offer levelmid-cycle). A Levels: For most courses, General Studies and Critical Thinking will be excluded from any A level offer. Breadth of subjects is valued by our selectors and therefore subjects with signicantly overlapping curricula should be avoided where possible. In general terms, subjects with a higher proportion of assessed written work are likely to provide a better preparation than more practical subjects for studying a degreeatWarwick. International Baccalaureate: For most courses, offerswill be based on achieving an overall score in the International Baccalaureate, and this will normally include core points, but please check individual course entries, where full details of the typical IB offer for that course are listed. Some courses may require one or more subjects to be achieved at Higher level ata certain grade. Cambridge Pre-U: We welcome applicants studying either the full Cambridge Pre-U diploma, or those taking a mixed portfolio of Pre-U certicates and Alevel subjects, in which case any essential subject requirements for your course may be satised by taking either the relevant Pre-U certicate or A Level. Candidates offering both a Pre-U and an A level in the same subject should be aware that only one will count towards the overall requirement for any given course. Our typical Pre-U offers will be related to the typical A level offer for your course, normally using the following standard equivalences:

Welsh Baccalaureate: Applicants studying for the Welsh Baccalaureate will normally be asked to achieve three A levels at the grades listed in the Typical Offers section of each course. The Welsh Baccalaureate core is not normally accepted in lieu of one of the three A levels. However, where typical offers are based on three A levels and a further AS level, Warwick will accept a pass in the Welsh Baccalaureate core in lieu of the 4th AS requirement. Extended Project: Warwick welcomes the Extended Project as a means through which applicants can stretch themselves academically and begin to prepare for the kind of studying they will do at university. Applicants presenting the Extended Project are encouraged to discuss their research in their personal statement and reect on how undertaking the project will help prepare them for studying their chosen degree at Warwick. Where a department typically makes offers which include a fourth subject at AS level the Extended Project will normally be consideredin lieu of this requirement. Scottish Advanced Highers/Highers: Warwick welcomes applicants taking Advanced Highers, and offers will normally be based on grades in two Advanced Highers that are close to the typical Alevel offer (AA or AB for most courses). We would normally also expect high grades in at least three Highers in additional subjects at least grade B in all cases, and normally all As for courses where our typical A Level offer is AAA. Any essential subjects must be studied at Advanced Higher level. Please contact the UG Admissions ofce with any queries about typical offers for your course. BTEC Level 3 National Diplomas: Applicants studying the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma, without any A levels, are not accepted for Warwick courses except Childhood, Education and Society, for which the typical offer is Distinction, Merit, Merit (usually in a Diploma with a related subject). The following subject areas accept students studying a combination of one or more A levels with a BTEC Diploma, Extended Diploma or Subsidiary Diploma, where the subject of the BTEC is relevant to the course applied for and any essential subject requirements are met through A levels: Engineering; Computer Science; Theatre and Performance Studies (single hons); Childhood, Education and Society. Sociology may also consider such applicants on a case-by-case basis. Most other Departments will not accept BTECs in lieu of A Levels. Typical offers will vary depending on the exact portfolio offered, but applicants are likely to be asked to achieve at least Distinction in their BTEC. Applicants are advised to contact the UG Admissions ofce for advice on the suitability of their qualications before submitting an application. Advanced Diplomas: Applicants who successfully achieve the Advanced Diploma (level 3) will be considered for entry onto Warwick degrees in some closely aligned subjects. To meet the standard entry

requirements applicants will need to take specic Additional and Specialised Learning options. Please refer to the Warwick and UCAS websites for details about Diploma entry requirements for specic degrees. If you are unsure about whether your combination of subjects will meet our entry requirements please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team foradvice. AQA Baccalaureate: Warwick welcomes the breadth of experience offered by those who successfully complete the AQA Baccalaureate and will consider activities completed towards the qualication as part of applicants overall proles. However, offers will not normally be made conditional upon achievement of theAQA Bacc but will be framed in terms of A level and AS level achievement. Foundation Programmes: Warwick offers the Higher Education Foundation Programme (HEFP) for international students whose current qualications do not equip them for direct entry to UK universities. TheHEFP is a one-year intensive access course, taught in colleges near the University, and students are offered accommodation nearby. HEFP students select one of the following six specialisms: Law, Business Studies, Social Science, Science/Engineering, Maths/ Economicsand Biomedical Science. Academic departments are closely involved with the HEFP and many welcome applications from HEFP students. Successful completion of the HEFP qualies students to apply to a range of competitive degree programmes. For specic degrees at Warwick candidates may be required to have additional qualications to meet subject requirements. Further information about the Warwick HEFP is available at www.warwick.ac.uk/go/hefp. Warwick alsowelcomes applications from students who are studying foundation programmes offered by other institutions. If you would like advice on the suitability ofthe HEFP or another foundation programme for entry onto a specic degree please refer to departmental entry requirements or contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team. Access to HE Diploma: Many of our courses will consider applicants presenting a QAA-recognised Access to HE Diploma provided that essential subject requirements are met. Applicants will normally be asked to obtain 45 credits at level 3, and a certain number of distinctions (usually at least 30, and higher for more competitive courses) may be specied. Please refer to individual departmental entry requirements. Overseas qualications: The University accepts a wide range of overseas qualications, such as the IrishLeaving Certicate, French Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate, German Abitur, Indian ClassXII, Hong Kong DSE, Singapore H2 and US College Board Advanced Placements. If you are unsure whether your qualication is acceptable, or have questions about the level we will require, you should contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team or the International Ofce. Additionally, local advice about the application procedure is available from all BritishCouncil ofces.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS


All applicants are required to show that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufciently high for them to derive full benet from their degree course. Many applicants can demonstrate English language competence through a satisfactory level ofachievement in, for example, GCSE English Language or the English courses within the International Baccalaureate. The level of English required depends on the type of degree applied forand the English qualication offered. Applicants whose academic qualications meet theUniversitys admissions requirements, but whose English language qualications are not accepted as equivalent, may be offered a place at Warwick conditional on an acceptable English language qualication being achieved before they join the University.
