University of Warwick
Please let us know whether you think your university does enough to attract and cater for students from a diverse range of backgrounds?
"We're one of the top universities for international students."
"Warwick is one of the most diverse universities in the UK. You can easily meet people from all over the world from different cultures and backgrounds through all the societies and clubs active on campus. The university pays a great deal of attention to adapting to the needs of all these different students and organising special orientation sessions for international students, as well as helping with legal stuff such as opening a UK bank account."
"Yes, our university provides lots of classes for international students to enhance their English."
"Warwick is great because it is so multicultural and really supports those from other countries. We have country societies to make people feel at home in addition to other clubs and events. Also, there is a wide variety of food places and lecturer support to help students along the way."
"The SU is constantly undertaking initiatives to represent different cultures and make their voices heard. The student outreach programme is also very active in reaching out to different schools from varying economic and cultural backgrounds."
"There are lots of international students, bursaries are available and accommodation comes with a large range of prices to suit all needs."
"There are scholarships (MSP and WSP) and bursaries given to students from low-income families, though there are many conditions attached."
"It appears as though the university does a lot to attract students from a diverse range of areas in the world as it appears quite an international university. I feel like the university could do more to attract and support students from lower income families as it feels like the majority of people I have come into contact with are from more well-off backgrounds, have attended private/grammar schools or had private tutoring."
"There are students from all over the globe so they definitely do enough to attract students from a diverse range of countries."
"Warwick has a very diverse and international student population."
"The university prides itself on being multicultural, which I think attracts the diverse range. I'm not sure if it does do enough to cater to students from poorer backgrounds, however."
"I come from a less well off background and get a student bursary to help with costs."
"Warwick is definitely diverse in terms of nationality. In terms of wealth, not so much. Everyone is very middle class or above."
"Being an international student myself, I think Warwick attracts a lot of attention from students globally as over half of its population consists of international students."
"I think it does, but there's always room for improvement."
"There seems to be good support for international students, and it doesn't seem too elitist, unlike the reputation many Russell Group unis have."
"My course has a massive international composition and, in general, there is a wide array of students from diverse backgrounds on campus."
"Warwick does a lot to cater for and attract students from a diverse range of backgrounds. There is a very comprehensive orientation programme each term, as well as organised support and activities for people from different backgrounds. There is also special funding and grants for students from overseas/less fortunate backgrounds."
