There are 2 kinds of open days: Mathematics Department Applicant open days and Undergraduate open days. Students receiving an offer for a Mathematics Department degree course will be invited to a Mathematics Department Applicant Day in February or March.
The Undergraduate open days are for students considering applying to Warwick. They can join a campus tour and look round the departments that interest them.
Mathematics Department Applicant Days
A visit to the Mathematics Institute will give you a good idea of the atmosphere of the University and the style of the mathematics we teach. Our Applicant Days are completely informal and there are no interviews. Their purpose is to give you an opportunity to meet members of staff, to ask questions about courses and campus life, and to talk to students who are already here.
If you receive an offer for one of the five degree courses offered by the Mathematics Department at Warwick, you will be invited to a Applicant Day in February or March. Please choose one of the following dates to attend an Open Day.
