Incoming Mathematics Students Induction

Congratulations on obtaining a place at the Mathematics Department here at the University of Warwick! We look forward to welcoming you in October. In the meantime the pages contained here will help you understand what you should be doing before you arrive, and what you will need to do in your first week here. On the first day you should come to the Induction session at 10:30am in the Zeeman Building, MS02. Please try to arrive 10-20 minutes early so we can start promptly.

You do not need to register for any modules yet; you can prepare by looking at the available options if you'd like, but you can wait until you arrive before registering, and registrations are not binding initially. The first induction meeting will explain how to choose your modules.

Before you arrive you may want to do some reading to get you up and running. You may also want to find our who your Personal Tutor will be and where to find them straight after your Induction Session on the first day.

There will be a second induction session on Friday of the first week once you have all settled in a bit.

Welcome Letter 2017

Please note that these pages are for those students about to start on the Maths BSc., MMath, Maths and Business, Maths and Economics or Maths and Philosophy degrees. Although some of the information contained may be useful to other students, much of it is specific to how Mathematics students can find help. MORSE and Maths/Stats should go to the Stats department website, Maths/Physics to Physics and Discrete Maths to Computer Science.

Your First Week


Maths Building


Schedule for Week 1

This calendar's schedule is empty.


One of the biggest differences that students find in coming from school to University is that you will quickly have to learn to organise your time and be responsible for your own learning. Although there is help out there through your Personal Tutor and Supervisor, there will not be a teacher making sure you are doing enough work!

Useful Links:

Due to the grades we ask for, many of you will never have struggled with mathematics... be prepared to start doing so almost straight away, we don't want you to be sitting in your comfort zone for long! The degree is challenging, but we have every confidence that you can all rise to that challenge!

Where to ask questions or find answers before arriving?
