    Ooh what modules did you pick? I picked all IPE-type ones (Politics of international trade & politics of global finance) but had a pretty tough time deciding - the public policy one was very tempting.

    Hey! So I picked Answer: The Global Food System and Gender and Global Politics (both 20 credits) and Economic Cultures and Global Flows: Rethinking International Political Economy. Theories and Issues in International Political Economy was an insurance module.


    I wish there was a way to view the student intranet (to see the average marks of past students and feedback of the module.)

    Yeah that would be awesome, along with sample essay questions etc. I've yet to find a current/past postgrad in PaIS to quiz though.

    Hi there,
    I'm starting an MBA in September I've got the same problem with accommodation, it's so expensive and I'd prefer living in a flat in Leamington, but it's a bit difficult, if you don't know anyone. What's your preferred on-campus accommodation?
    Hi, I actually go to Sixth Form in Leamington. Their are alot of students from Warwick Uni who live there.

    From what I know it's relatively cheap, and an AMAZING place to live. Its a middle class area, and you don't run into much trouble. Their is one big high street that has a range of shops; from Tesos to Retail

    Yep, first choice is Tocil, 2nd Claycroft, the other 2 are the en-suite rooms. Really want the convenience of living on campus even though it could end up being quite expensive - just makes late sessions in the library and the winter/rain so much easier.

    How about you?

    I know right. fair point. But Tocil is just 40 weeks isnt? Will you transfer then afterwards? I was thinking Claycroft first choice and then the rest of the ensuite rooms. I'm applying today btw.

    Yeah but right now I'm not very sure if I'll stay in Warwick for the summer, I may use LSE's library when writing my dissertation since I can stay in London for free. I'm undecided right now, but in I think in week 8 you can apply for summer accommodation which I may do. I just didn't really want to be tied into a longer contract if I wasn't sure about it.

    I did the same as you for accommodation. However, I might end up off-campus since I'm not an international student... But I really hope I'll be on campus... otherwise I won't be able to spend my nights in the Lib D: ahah

    And yeah, I think Tocil is much better than en-suite accommodations which are soooo far away from main campus and really expensive.

    Yeah I wish they had some stats on how many people apply for accommodation, how likely we are to receive it etc. I think most international students go more for en-suites but I suppose we'll see! Spareroom has a few advertisements across the road from campus, so I may go to one of those but I'd like to be living with all post-grads.

    I think there are around 2000 PG accommodations on-campus... and a little bit more new PG students every year... so most of PG will end up on campus I think... but still, since the campus allocation is made by ballot, if you're unlucky (like me) you can end up in Coventry ( yeaaah....). But I think we just have to wait and see. I think they're gonna start making offers in mid-August. But I really want to be on-campus (and in Tocil!), otherwise I'll try to find a flat in Leamington because there's no way I'm going to Coventry!

    By the way, anyone attending the orientation week?

    Hey Amethrine! I feel the same, I'm so excited. I can't wait to be in September! Have you applied for accommodation?!

    By the way guys, if you have questions about Warwick, you can ask me since I've studied one year at Warwick as part of my ERASMUS year.

    Yes I did, my first preference was Heronbank and after that Lakeside as I heard they are both convenient for postgraduate life, let's see what will happen what will you study at Warwick?

    Heronbank and Lakeside were my third and fourth choice, they are too far away from central campus and I'm a lazy person . I choosed Tocil first (less expensive and central.... and really cosy!) and then Claycroft. But I might end up off-campus if I'm not lucky.

    I'll do an LLM in Advanced Legal Studies and I can't wait to begin... but my modules only start week 2 of October ahah, so I still have plenty of time! Are you from England?

    Hi anyway

    I only just found out today that I've been accepted for a PhD place at the WBS.
    I guess I'm late to this party.

    Hi All! I am starting my masters in September at Warwick. I got offered an off campus accommodation which I am not so sure about and have to decide on in two days! I was wondering if anyone else has gotten offered off campus accommodation?
