Warwick University – Online Open House

Hello from the University of Warwick!

 

You, your students, and their parents are kindly invited to Warwick Online Week!

 

This is an online Open House with our academic departments and students.  If you, your students, or their parents are interested in UK study or any of our programs, this is a great chance to learn more!

 

Key points are:

 

  • Dates run November 11-15, 2019
  • Pre-registration is required – each session has a separate sign up link
  • Updated schedule and pre-registration links are at: https://warwick.ac.uk/study/livechat/wow
  • Some sessions will be presentation based, but those described as ‘chat with’ or ‘talk to’ are fine for you to join on a drop-in basis
  • If you pre-register for sessions, my colleagues will share presentations and FAQs after Warwick Online Week
  • No software downloads are required

 

We’re still working on some of the departments’ timings and pre-registration links, but the schedule is filling up with the following departments and services taking part (listed below).  I have also put in some links to course pages for some of our newer courses you may not be familiar with!

 

 

We apologise in advance that some of the timings might not work for everyone to join up live – we’re inviting people from all around the world, so timing is tricky to say the least!

 

I would be grateful if you could kindly forward this round to any students who may be interested in applying to Warwick, and wanting to learn more about these courses.

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance and if you have any questions regarding this that I can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

With thanks and best wishes,

Lorna
