Postgraduate Open Day 2013
The Postgraduate Open Day took place on the 27th November 2013.
The Postgraduate Open Day gives you the chance to have indepth conversations with academics and students from the department in which you’d like to study. You’ll have the chance to take a campus tour and find out about Warwick’s beautiful surroundings and world-leading facilities. We’re also offering a set of talks to help you find out what you can study, how you can fund it, how to apply and where a PG degree might lead you in the future. We look forward to meeting you! Here's some useful information about the day:

Don't forget to... jot down all the questions you want to ask on the back of the downloadable booklet so you remember to get all the information you need.
AFTER THE OPEN DAY
IN THE MEANTIME
You might be used to giving feedback after events, but here at Warwick we like to do things differently.
We'd like you to feed forward, letting us know what you'd like to see at the Postgraduate Open Day before the event takes place. Check out what we've done so far this year, then simply tweet your Feed Forward @WarwickPostgrad using #FeedForward2013, email your Feed Forward to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form. We look forward to hearing from you -- and if you also register your attendance at the Open Day, we'll enter you into a prize draw for an Amazon Kindle!
Thank you for all your great ideas. We're working on them now. Have a look at some of our responses to the 2013 Feed Forward campaign, and book your place on the Open Day now!
