University of Warwick Post-Application Information Sessions

28 January 2022

Saturday Post-Application Information Sessions (Feb 5, 12 and 19)

In February, the University of Warwick will be running information sessions on what to expect after submitting a UCAS application for undergraduate study.

These will run through the timeline for receiving offers, making decisions, how this might fit with applications to colleges in other countries, plus what to expect in terms of housing applications, student life, fees, funding, immigration, arrivals and induction. Some of the information will discuss Warwick specifically but will be contextualized within the general UK approach.

These sessions will be most relevant to:

  • students who have applied to Warwick or are thinking of applying to the UK in the future and would like to know more about post-application processes
  • parents and advisors who are helping students to navigate UK post-application processes

Sessions currently open for bookings include:

  • Saturday February 5, 2022 2.30 pm - 3.30 pm ET 
  • Saturday February 12, 2022 2.30 pm - 3.30 pm ET 
  • Saturday February 19, 2022 2.30 pm - 3.30 pm ET 

Across the three dates, each session will include the same presentation and opportunity for Q&A.  The sessions are being offered on a live basis only as part of a trial series for Spring 2022.  During this trial, Warwick is not planning to make recordings available.  However, they will be running the session live on multiple dates to increase accessibility for students and parents.
