    I loved Warwick, thought the campus was amazing so I turned down UCL and Imperial for Warwick firm and Bath insurance.

    Fair enough, Bath is nice, Bristol was my other option which is also nice, but Bath has a better reputation than Bristol so I decided Bath as an insurance.

    when I was doing my PhD I was unfortunate to be sharing office space with another 4 students from Warwick. (Warwick is non existent for physically applied maths; just pure, stats, more pure and more stats ...)
    well all 4 were "R-soles".
    I heard that Warwick has one of the most (if not the most) flexible maths courses in the country, meaning you can pick all your optional modules from say the physics department and essentially do applied maths alongside the core maths modules, so if that is true then yes, applied maths definitely exists at Warwick.

    Just an update: I've decided to keep Warwick firmed after further research.

    I know this was a small sample but I have formed an opinion about the type of student who goes to Warwick.

    My opinion for the institution has not changed much ...
    I see them as Cambridge "wannabbies"
    Across all departments you only need to look at UCL and Warwick Internationally

    They don't have mechanics there?
    I'd like quite a lot of mechanics in my course.

    It looks like there's a lot of pure maths in first year, but you get to choose what you want to do from second year on.

    Maybe the person wasn't a good source of info-
    in all fairness he didn't even want to do maths anyway

    I know this thread is a week old now, but for future readers it's really Bath which has the ultra flexible degree which gives you an incredible amount of flexibility in its maths degree, right from second year, giving choice from pure, various mechanics, statistics, probability, physics, computer science, economics, management, ...

    Bath's is way, **way** more flexible than Warwick's.

    I can't speak for the University of Bath, but I can, as a soon to be graduate of Warwick, speak for the University of Warwick.

    Make no mistake, the content is genuinely challenging, but it is supposed to be. I remember my first year vividly, for all the wrong reasons: I came from being a high achiever in A levels (and STEP) to barely scraping a pass in my first two January exams. I eventually pulled myself up to a 2.1 after the first two years, but that initial experience has never departed from me. It has stayed with me and made me a very strong person. One thing to also note is that the content is very heavily pure based. I believe Bath have a few more applied modules available so whether this comes into your thinking or not is another consideration you might need to have.

    Aside from the academic side of things, Warwick is a very social place; since the university is somewhat isolated from the more urban areas of Coventry and Warwickshire, we have extremely active societies here and we do in fact have the most societies of any university in the UK. I got heavily involved during my time here on two society executive committees - it's great fun and has truly added a lot to my experience here that I am not sure I would have got somewhere else.
