    I am looking to apply here too. I do maths, further maths, art and physics. But warwick said I was at a disadvantage because I don't do a essay subject. I'm predicted A*AAB. How much of a disadvantage do you think I'll be at?

    Anyone filled in or started filling in their student finance for Warwick uni?
    It only shows accounting and finance as a 4 yr course but it's obviously not :/

    Warwick say select the 4 yr course but say you are leaving in 2015. SFE say it won't work as you can't enter yourself as 3 yrs on a 4 yr course.
    WTF?

    BTW- do we need to book accomodation for our insurance ?

    Very frustrating- cant decide on Warwick or Bristol as the insurance. Warwick is the choice but afraid i'd miss the grade while Bristol is a sure safe choice..

    Warwick because it's more respected by employers, importantly by investment banks, and the course is from warwick business school which is known to be very good.
    In the end it comes down to which gives you more chance to go far in life, and warwick's your answer out of the two.

    Good choice, that was my insurance choice when i applied. Did you get onto the PwC sponsored course with the placement or did you just get offered the normal one?

    Good choice, course is great, very hard though. If you get the grades make sure you become very familiar with "The Learning Center" and late night studying

    The PwC sponsored one, sounds really good providing you pass all of your ACA exams and get a 2.1! How many contact hours did you receive at Birmingham per week? Was the course there quite heavily Maths based (as it was a BSc you received)? Thanks.
