Warwick is one of the UK’s great success stories. In less than fifty years since being founded it has become one of the UK’s best universities, consistently at the top of UK league tables and rapidly climbing the international league tables of world class universities.

The University champions independent thinking and as well as being founded, first and foremost, on academic excellence, a key driver of the Warwick success story so far is its entrepreneurial spirit. A key strength is its relevance to society and close links with business and industry.
