Over 8,000 people attend Warwick’s open days so it is essential that you book online. You can ask for a parking space when you book so you won’t have to stress about finding somewhere to park.
Warwick Medical School do hold their own open days but dates for 2014 are not available yet. On these days, you will be able to find out more about applying for the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MB ChB) degree and experience a clinical skills session. Make sure you ask if there is any equipment that you will need to buy before starting the course as this is something that prospective medical students seem to forget.
Students interested in medicine can also attend the normal open day where you will be able to look around the campus and student residences, visit the open day exhibition and go to general talks that cover all aspects of university life; including living at Warwick, tips for your personal statement and how to ensure that you don’t run out of money. Take a look at the surrounding area too as this may be where you decide to live.
The University of Warwick have a wide range of options for people who are interested in studying there. You can book a visit to Warwick between April and October which will last for around 2 hours. On this trip, you will be able to tour the campus and hear what Warwick has to offer you as a student. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to go into any academic departments and accommodation may not be open for viewing.
You can also book onto an hour long campus tour which will show you all of the facilities that make up the University of Warwick. These range from the library and sports centre to the heart of a student’s life – the Students’ Union.
The last option is an independent visit. These visits can take place at any time with no booking required. Just print off a map of the campus and you’ve got yourself a self-guided tour.
