Courses The core of a Warwick degree is the in-depth study of a particular subject or subjects, from which you will build up a mass of specialised knowledge, and this is achieved regardless of the degree level. Higher Education Foundation Programme With almost 30 yearsâ€™ experience, the Warwick Higher Education Foundation Programme (HEFP) is taught in five specialised subjects: Business Studies, Law, Science & Engineering, Social Science and Biomedical Science. They are fast track courses with 100% record of placing students into UK universities following successful completion of the HEFP. Two of the courses, Science & Engineering and Biomedical Science have guaranteed conditional offers from the University of Warwick. Applications are made directly to Warwick at www.warwick.ac.uk/go/hefp Undergraduate degrees Unlike the Foundation programme and Postgraduate degrees where the applications are made directly to the university involved, the undergraduate courses must be applied to through the UCAS application system online. Applicants can submit a maximum of five choices for different courses at the same or different institutions. The application form, along with further advice, can be found at www.ucas.com. Any supporting documentation must be sent directly to the University of Warwickâ€™s Admissions Office. Postgraduate Taught degrees Applications for the Postgraduate Taught Masters degrees are made directly to the University . To apply to study at Warwick, visit www.warwick.ac.uk/study/postgraduate. Here you will find the application form, admission requirements, check list and other important information. Postgraduate Research degrees If you are thinking of applying for a PhD with us, the first step is to ensure that there is an academic who shares your research interests. We receive many good applications each year that we cannot accept simply because there is no supervisor available. We suggest that you look at the departmental pages and forward a summary of your research proposal to any suitable academics for your topic. Once you have found your supervisor, you can submit your application, along with your research proposal, if required, online at www.warwick.ac.uk/go/pgapply
