**Why Warwick?** We're a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. Today more than 25,000 students thrive across four faculties, which feature over 70 research centres and institutes.

All of this means you'll be welcomed to a safe, energetic and cosmopolitan campus with flexible, well-equipped study spaces to help you stretch yourself personally, professionally and academically. Whether you want to be a front-runner in a fast-moving graduate job market, or to make a difference and change the world, we want you here. **The course** Our GSD joint degrees enable you to investigate the contemporary problems that our governments, scientists, philosophers, educationalists and charities are grappling with, and challenge you to explore possible, practical solutions. You'll combine your study of sustainable development with Politics and International Studies and will learn how to apply your expertise to the investigation of the world's most pressing concerns. Each year, you'll take half of your modules in Global Sustainable Development and the other half from Politics and International Studies. You'll also have the opportunity to complete professional certificates in: Digital Literacy, Coaching and Sustainability Auditing. The GSD component of your course examines crucial challenges in areas such as health, ageing, food security, hunger, energy, labour, climate change, and production and consumption patterns, from a variety of perspectives offered by experts engaged in real-life research. Practitioners from the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities spheres will explain how they approach and analyse these issues. You'll learn their techniques and acquire the research, analytical and rhetorical skills necessary to critique the various approaches. You'll also examine the possibilities for bringing together sustainability efforts and development policies in a politically sound, economically fair and socially democratic setting.

Located within beautiful woodland scenery, Warwick is often described as being 'in a field'. Although this is true (and you'll appreciate the beautiful streams and open space), the campus is a short bus ride from Coventry city so depending on what you fancy you can really get the best of both worlds. The social events are fantastic once you're on-board, and there's plenty to do if getting drunk midweek isn't your thing.

    Amazing place and people

    So far, I have had a good university experience, despite my initial doubts. It's a fairly small place, and you get used to everything quickly. Everyone has been exceptionally friendly.
