Frequently Asked Questions

How do I request a visit for my school?

Please complete our online form to request a visit to the University, including as much information as you can about what you would like your visit to include and when you’d like to come. We will then be in touch to advise if we are able to host your visit and if so, start planning your schedule for the day.

Please note we are unfortunately unable to accommodate all requests due to staff and ambassador availability, and therefore prioritise visits for pupils in years 11-13.

What will my visit include?

A typical school visit includes:

  • A presentation from a recruitment officer to give an overview of the University (approx. 45 minutes) – if you would like the presentation to cover anything more specific please let us know in your request form
  • A guided campus tour by a student ambassador (approx. one hour long) – this provides your students with the opportunity to speak to a current student and find out everything they want to know about studying at Warwick. Please note we are unable to offer viewings inside accommodation blocks.

The above is a guide to what we can offer during your visit. If you would like anything in addition to this please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

How long does a visit last?

A typical visit will last around two hours, however this is flexible depending on your requirements.

Can we view student accommodation on the day?

Unfortunately we are unable to include viewings inside student accommodation as part of the visit, however you will be able to see where the accommodation is on campus. You can find out more about the different options available here

What other options are available for my students to find out about the University?

You can request for a recruitment officer to come visit your school and speak to your students – please complete the online form here with your details.
