The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.
Starting university is an exciting time with a host of new opportunities, so we wanted to provide some useful information on financial support and helpful tips to help you prepare for university life at Warwick.
A network of support is in place to help you adjust to student life, making it as easy as possible to access advice on many different issues. Continuous support is available in a safe, welcoming environment, ensuring that you can make the most of your student experience.
If you find yourself experiencing some difficulty whilst at university, there is also support in times of crisis, and we do have services in place to help you in difficult times.
