The best decision I ever made Diamond review

AdvantagesRespected uni, close knit community, FUN FUN FUN

DisadvantagesBubble atmosphere

"...ended up picking up the warwick prospectus and giving it another look. Initially I had rejected it straight off as a campus uni. I'm originally from Liverpool even though I now reside in the Cotswolds, and the thought of being trapped in a bubble with one nightclub and everything and everyone in one place sounded like a nightmare. My vision of a campus was concrete with a launderette and a cafe and nothing else. I wanted a city uni, that was that, ..." Read review

Let The Good Times Roll.....

AdvantagesEverything!!!

DisadvantagesApart from the commercialism!!!

"...years at the University Of Warwick were great - there was the obvious pyscho-partner issues, and the tension created by pulling numerous housemates, but on the whole it was a really wonderful time. Well, it's located near Stoneleigh, which is near Coventry, and therefore in the West Midlands. It was built in the 60s, and is therefore a mix of a modern Uni, and a red-brick one. The place is getting bigger each year, with constant building programmes, ..." Read review

Popular for so many reasons

AdvantagesGreat Union, societies, courses, facilities ... everything really

DisadvantagesYou have to put Coventry in your address

"...about to go back to Warwick for my 4th and final year at the place, after spending a year working in Brussels as part of my Politics with French course, and to be honest I can't wait! Obviously this opinion will be influenced by the fact that, knowing my luck, the Vice Chancellor will turn out to be a Ciao member who scours the opinions on Universities for any anti-Warwick material, but fortunately there's not really anything bad to mention.

No regrets

AdvantagesToo many to list here

DisadvantagesNone

"After being here in Warwick University for a few years, I would like to share my experiences with others and hopefully will help you make a decision if you are going to university. Warwick University is always one of the Top 10 universities in UK. It is a relatively new university (just celebrated its 40 years anniversary in year 2005) but most courses and lecturers are of high standard. However, there are very limited courses on offer so it is ..." Read review

Warwick is the best

Advantagesits the 5th best uni at the moment

DisadvantagesIts in Coventry.

"Ive just graduated from Warwick in July 2003 after completing a degree in Sociology. There is a lot of competition for places at Warwick and it seems as though everyone you meet applied for Oxford or Cambridge and didnt get in. I wasn't one of them people however but I was so pleased to be offered a place there. There are roughly 16,000 students there but it really doesn't seem like it. Warwick also has the reputation for one of the biggest campuses ..." Read review

Warwick Uni - a guide

AdvantagesToo many too mention

DisadvantagesVery few in my opinion

"...soon either be heading to Warwick Uni, or seriously starting to look around for a years time, i would give a guide to the life you can expect when/if you join me there. Firstly, Warwick University is located just outside Coventry, and strangely enough, about a 30 minute drive away from Warwick. It is very central, think Birmingham and you would not be far off. I wont bore you with any of the academic statistics, as there are far too many and ..." Read review

Very Nice Facilities, very good library. very expensive

AdvantagesExcellent buildings, library, teaching staff

DisadvantagesLocation, enclosed campus environment, local resentment of students

"Warwick university has a very nice campus, and one of the best university libraries I have seen; however its location halfway between Coventry and Leamington Spa means that students living off campus have to travel a lot. Only come here for the courses, the facilities and the teaching not for the nightlife, it is quite apparent that the locals in Coventry are very resentful of students and burglary rate is high. Apart from all that Warwick University ..." Read review

Excellent Union, Loads of Rubbish Sculptures

AdvantagesGood quality degrees, Excellent Union, pleasant campus

DisadvantagesToo commercial, Coventry

"I have been at Warwick for two years now, the academic standards are excellent and a Warwick degree will be highly thought of. However at times it feels like the university is more concerned with its thriving conference work than it is with actual teaching. They waste thousands of pounds on dodgy modern art sculptures to attract executives rather than pay lecturers properly or buy books for the library. However the social life is wonderful. The ..."

Advantagesunion facilities sports arts centre reputation

Disadvantageslots of swats

"...the real world. Yes Warwick has an incredible academic reputation, yes it has a massive library and yes it is always rated highly by whatever league tables exist. However only people in the know realise how much more can be gained from studying at this world renowned university. A huge union (the biggest in Europe) holds host to a wide range of events that suit anybody and everybody who has a passion for fun, but, better still are the range of ..." Read review

Pretty hard to beat

AdvantagesDecent union, decent course, decent campus

DisadvantagesOften high grades for courses

"...in my second year at Warwick and you realise how good a place you're in! You'll spend your first year in halls - about 5000 people live on campus - most of the halls are a short crawl from the Union, very handy after coming out of an event! Second years have to move off campus, mostly to either Coventry or Leamington (we're actually in Coventry, not Warwick! You spend most of your holidays explaining to your aunt/uncle/granny/friends that you haven't ..." Read review

Fun fun fun

AdvantagesExcellent atmosphere, Student's Union, great people, good variety

DisadvantagesIt's nowhere near Warwick!

"...library, the computer rooms, shops, Warwick Arts Centre (with cinema, theatre, art gallery and posh eatery) and of course the Student's Union. Now the Union has been up and down during my time at Warwick. As far as ents are concerned, I don't think they can be faulted, especially this last year which has hosted some great bands such as Supergrass, Fun Lovin Criminals, Biffy Clyro, and loads more that I can't even remember right now. The club nights ..." Read review

Something for everyone...

AdvantagesBrilliant reputation

DisadvantagesThe campus is a bit of a bubble...

"...5 Unis in the UK, Warwick has wonderful teaching staff, great accommodation, a packed nightlife, and lovely cafés and bars. Set in a bit of a rural area, although near to Coventry, and Leamington Spa, Warwick's campus is a mixture of modern buildings and lots of green areas. At the back of my old halls is a beautiful man-made lake with wild birds, and lots of (well-lit) walkways to calm those exam nerves, and stoll through when you need a break. There ..." Read review

Just go!

AdvantagesA top institution, excellent in all areas

DisadvantagesCompetition for places tough in areas

"...shaddow of a doubt that Warwick university has to be one of the best - if not the best. Why? Just look at what this university has to offer. The tutors at this place are the best in the country. They are leaders in their fields. And unlike many of the more traditional institutions, you actually get taught by the top tutors, instead of by the tutors Phd students. Secondly, look at the resources. In all areas, it is unreal - computers especially. ..." Read review

AdvantagesMusic, Events, Leamington

DisadvantagesCoventry and er... Coventry

"Warwick is great. Despite the fact that I left after 2 years, I would recommend Warwick university to anybody. However, I think the quality and consistency of courses varies like you wouldn't believe and some courses are not right for certain people, but that is the case for all universities. I would, however, make sure you know exactly what your course entails before you start. The first year at Warwick is great. There is always something going ..." Read review

Not good.

AdvantagesReputation

DisadvantagesHumanities dept.

"...the positive feedback on here, Warwick University isn't for everyone. Although my views are coloured by my negative undergraduate experience, others have had similar complaints. IMO, it seems to suit "joiners" and those looking for an academically disciplined environment. Creative or eccentric types would do best to avoid. Unless your extra-curricular interests are of the sport-music-drinking variety, there's little else to see or do on campus. ..." Read review
