    Hello,

    I am going to study a postgraduate programme (MSc Marketing & Strategy) @ Warwick Business Schoon starting in September.

    Could anyone please give me some information regarding the following questions:

    1. Where does the majority of postgraduates live (especially those from WBS) --> on cmapus or off campus?

    As I am an outgoing person, likes to party a lot...social life is quite important for me:

    2. Which would be the best city to live (considering social life, partying, clubs, bars...) --> Coventry, Leamington or Kenilworth

    3. Which of the places Lakeside, Heronbank, Claycroft or Tocil is the best on campus accomodation (also considering social life, partying...)?

    It would great to your feedback!

    Thanks and best regards.

    I can't really help that much since I'm not a postgrad but Claycroft and Tocil are more "sociable" than Heronbank and Lakeside which are both quite quiet and slightly further out. Most students live in either Cov/Leamington; there are more clubs in Coventry but you can still have a good night out in Leam.

    I am an undergrad so please take my opinion with a pinch of salt, I do know quite a few postgrads but hopefully someone else will post who knows more;

    1. I believe there is a lot in the off campus areas of Cov. Close to campus (Earlsdon area). Its cheap and convenient as opposed to Leamington which is less so (especially with regard to convenience!)
    And obviously the on campus postgrad accomodations have post grads in

    2.Not Kenilworth!

    3. As accomodations they are quite similar. I dont honestly know about social life. If it was UnderGrad or you plan to go and find some undergrads to party with prob tocil.

    Hey Richiyoo,

    I am also joining WBS, but for a master on management and organizational analysis.
    I also loooove to party, make cocktails, dinner or dance the whole night =)

    I am currently looking for houses cause I did not get an on campus accommodation.
    Send me a message if you have doubts or if you want to discuss any topic related to the unviersity.

    It seems for me that there are always trade-offs.
    Coventry is closer, but Leamington seems prettier and with a good night.
    Did you already find a place?

    How come?
    Virtually no students live there. No nightlife there either.
