All international students are issued a CAS in order to apply for their student visa.

The process will usually start about three months prior to your course start date in mid-June/early July. All unconditional offer holders who have accepted their place on one of our courses will receive instructions and information about the CAS process via email. The email will ask you to check whether your personal details are correct. If any of the details listed need amending, you will need to submit the correct information according to the instructions in the email. You will then receive a further email asking you to check if the amendment(s) have been made correctly. Once you have confirmed that all your personal details are correct, your CAS will normally be issued as an email attachment within 5 working days. This turnaround time can vary the closer you are to term commencing.

If you hold a conditional offer for a postgraduate degree, a CAS cannot be issued. You will first need to send in the documents required to meet the condition(s) of your offer. Further information on how to meet the condition(s) of your offer can be found here.

Further information about CAS’/VISAs can be found on the International Office’s immigration pages.

This will depend greatly on the modules you select and the times at which they are timetabled. As a rule, full time undergraduates are expected to be on campus Monday to Friday, whereas full time LLM students will be required to attend a minimum of two days a week.
The standard contact hours for full time undergraduates is 12 hours per week, whereas for postgraduate students it is a minimum of 9 hours per week. Please be aware that our courses are intensive and require a large amount of non-contact time for reading of materials and preparation for classes.
The final timetable will be released mid September and can be found on Tabula for undergraduates, or will be posted on the start of term page of this website for postgraduates.
Postgraduates will be required to submit a dissertation topic area (not a specific title) during December. A more extensive proposal will be required at a later date. Undergraduates who wish to undertake a dissertation in their final year will submit their proposals at the same time as selecting their other optional modules in the spring.

Undergraduate students have a reading week in week 6 of terms 1 & 2, in which there are no scheduled lectures or seminars.

There is no reading week for IEL and ICGFR students in either Term One or Two due to the welcome week taking place in Term One and the use of the first week in Term Two for exams. IDLHR students have a reading week in Week 6 of Term One and Term Two. ALS students will only have a reading week if they have selected only IDLHR modules in the term concerned.

Yes, a personal tutor will be assigned to you when you register with the department.

Undergraduate exams take place in weeks 4-9 of term 3 (summer term).

Undergraduate Study

It is possible to take a number of modules from other departments, but the number and type depend very much on the course you are taking. For more information, please contact uglaw dot admissions at warwick dot ac dot uk.

Postgraduate Study

You can take up to 40 CATS worth of modules from either another LLM programme or from outside of the Law department. (A half module running for one term is worth 20CATS whilst a full module running for two terms is worth 40CATS). ALS students can take up to 40CATS from outside of the Law department and are not restricted on their selection of modules from across the other LLM progammes, as their course allows for this. You must get the agreement of your own department as well as the department offering the module before signing up for this. Details of the modules must be obtained directly from the department concerned. Please ensure there are no timetable clashes before confirming your module choices.

This depends on the modules you have opted to take. Some modules require a text book to be purchased from the University book shop whilst others provide a study pack for which you will not be charged. Details of the reading materials for each module can be found on the undergraduate modules pages or the postgraduate module pages of this website.
We do not offer an internship programme as part of any courses we offer. You will be advised of any networking events or internship opportunities should they arise during your time here.

You will firstly need to register with the University on the online enrolment page, once you have fulfilled all of your conditions and been issued with an unconditional offer. You will also need to come and register with the department on the first day of term and collect your welcome pack with all the information you will need for your time at Warwick.

During your first week as an undergraduate, you will have the opportunity to meet your lecturers and fellow students as well as get to know Warwick at a series of introductory lectures and socials. Details will all be listed in the Welcome Pack.

For postgraduates, there is an induction/welcome week in which you can attend module introduction sessions, which we hope will help you decide which modules to take during your time here. There are also a number of social events taking place in order to give you the opportunity to meet both your classmates and tutors. Details of the activities taking place during the first day/week of term can be found on our start of term information page.

No. Most first year undergraduates will take the same modules and will not need to choose at all. Those studying law with humanities or law with social sciences will be guided through their options in week 1. Postgraduates will have until the Thursday of Week One to decide which modules you wish to take during your time on the LLM. All information concerning how you should register your modules will be provided on the first day of term in your welcome pack.

As a Warwick student, you will be studying hard throughout your time with us but we do as much as we can to provide you with a supportive environment, to enable you to make the very most of your time at Warwick. Making sure that you feel part of our student community is very important to us.

Each programme has a staff student liaison committee. The SSLC makes sure that any work related issues are discussed and dealt with by School staff but the Law School also provides funds to the SSLC representatives to hold a termly social event. The School also funds a trip to London for postgraduates to visit the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies when you are writing your dissertation.

Warwick as a campus university offers you the opportunity to get to know students from across the world and to develop contacts and friendships that last long after you leave. It has spaces such as the Postgraduate Hub, the library and the learning grid for you to work and socialise together. The Students Union values both our undergraduate and postgraduate community and has dedicated officers who makes sure that your needs are taken into account.

We find that every year our students form their own communities by setting up Facebook groups, organising social events and taking part in the wider life of the Law School which includes organising workshops, working on the student law review and taking part in pro bono/volunteering activities.

In addition to the above learning facilities, the campus also offers a range of social facilities in the form of the sports centre and the excellent Warwick Arts Centre as well as a range of bars and restaurants. It also provides day to day essentials with a pharmacy, hairdressers, bookshop, bank and supermarket all available on one campus.
