Entry Requirements and How to Apply

In order to meet our academic entry requirement, you should have obtained the equivalent of a UK first or second class honours degree in a science, engineering, IT, business or management discipline. There are some differences in the requirements for each course, so please see the the individual course pages for entry requirements to your chosen programme.

Apply as early as possible, even if you do not yet have all the supporting documents you need, however please note we do not operate a "first come, first served" admissions policy and all applications are assessed in the same way, regardless of when they are received.

Please remember you are applying for a one-year, full-time postgraduate course. Undergraduate term dates do not apply to you and you will be expected to remain at Warwick for the year (October 2017 to mid September 2018). There will be times (e.g. the weeks of Christmas and New Year) when you will not have any taught modules scheduled, however you will be expected to organise your workload around any break from study.

Click to apply

Click the green button above to go to the online application system. You do not have to complete the application process in one go, you can work through it at your own pace and submit it when you are ready. You must pay a £50 application fee before your application can be processed; instructions on how to pay this are given at the end of the application process. If you are a scholarship student or are having serious difficulties paying the application fee, please contact us for advice or assistance.

You can apply now, even if you do not yet have all the necessary documents ready; if necessary we will make you a conditional offer and you can provide them later.

You will need to provide:

  • A completed application form & application fee.
  • A Personal Statement, which can be included in the online application.
  • A scan of your transcript of marks awarded so far (if you are currently studying) OR an original copy of your final transcript / degree certificate* (if you have completed your studies).
  • English test result (if applicable)
  • One reference. If you completed studies less than 2 years ago, this should be academic references. If you graduated more than 2 years ago, we will accept professional references. The reference must be submitted directly to us by the referee.

Please only apply for ONE of our courses. Do not submit multiple applications to WMG. Once accepted onto one MSc course, you can request to switch to another WMG course if you subsequently feel another programme is more suitable. You must request any such switch before we issue you with a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Study). You will be asked to submit a new Statement of Purpose and other restrictions may apply.

If your application is rejected, we will not consider further applications from you for WMG courses for that entry year.

English Requirements

Studying at Warwick requires a high level of English competence. If you are a non-native English speaker you must submit English test results equivalent to IELTS 6.5 with component scores of at least 6.0. If your scores are marginally below this, we may be able to offer you a place on our pre-sessional English course. We may exempt you the requirement to submit an English test result if you have studied for three years or more in an English-speaking country. See here for more information about our English requirements.
