Warwick is a modern university, founded in 1965, but it has quickly developed an enviable international reputation for academic and
research excellence, in addition to having connections with many world famous organisations, companies and institutions. It is a very
realistic alternative to Oxford and Cambridge, and is one of only five UK universities to have always been ranked in the Top 10 in all rankings
since they began (the other four are Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial and LSE). In The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016
, it is
ranked 6th overall in the UK
and has consistently been in the Overall Top 10 every year before that. Some subject rankings in the 2016 guide
are as follows: Accounting &Finance 5th, Business Studies 8th, Communication &Media Studies 5th, Computer Science 5th, Creative Writing
1st, Drama, Dance &Cinematics 3rd, Economics 3rd, General Engineering 6th, Law 13th, Mathematics 5th, Physics &Astronomy 4th, Politics 3rd and Sociology 15th.
In addition to leading established courses in Engineering Business Management, Supply Chain & Logistics Management, Finance,
Economics and Law
, innovative new programmes, such as Master’s Degrees in International Trade, Strategy & Operations, Marketing
& Strategy, International Security, Management for Business Excellence, Cyber Security & Management, Innovation &
Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management & Employment Relations, Advanced Teaching of Shakespeare
and Service Management &
enhance Warwick’s reputation, together with the finest facilities at the Science Park, Warwick Arts Centre, WMG and
Warwick Business School.
For aspiring UK undergraduates, Warwick also has one of the most prestigious Foundation courses in the UK, the Warwick
International Foundation Programme, which is the ideal preparation for studying at Warwick (or other top UK universities).
University Campus from the Air
The University is located in a wonderful landscaped and very green and safe campus just a few minutes outside the thriving
city of Coventry, in the heart of England, close to Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon and the nice towns of Leamington Spa and
Kenilworth. You can travel directly and easily to Coventry city centre by luxury coach from London Heathrow Airport and London
Gatwick Airport using the excellent National Express www.nationalexpress.com
Thailand, flying to Birmingham Airport (on Emirates
via Dubai, Swiss
via Zurich or KLM
via Amsterdam) means
you can easily take a taxi straight to the University of Warwick from the airport in about 15 minutes, so no need to carry your
heavy baggage onto trains and buses at London Airport!!! Coventry is 60 minutes from London by fast train and it is also an
ideal centre for travelling to other places in the UK and close to the National Exhibition Centre and the city of
Birmingham, , famous for its shopping centres and markets.
The thing that attracts many students to Warwick is the campus environment and its fantastic facilities. These include the
excellent University Library, the University Bookshop, the Computing Service Centre, Warwick Arts Centre (one of the largest
arts centres in the UK with 2 theatres, a cinema, a concert hall and a specialized music centre), the Rootes Building (with
comfortable bars and restaurants and Costa Coffee to keep you awake!), and University House (which includes the popular
Learning Grid and the International Office). The Warwick Students' Union is one of the largest and most active in the UK with
over 250 societies to choose from - included in this there is a thriving and very active Thai
at Warwick, too (only English is spoken at meetings - joke!!!), so you are sure to have some friends
around - take a look at the website www.warwickthaisoc.co.uk
. If you want to
cook your own food, or if you wish to buy ready-to-eat meals, the Costcutter supermarket has a good variety (with a new
in-store bakery too!), and there is also a huge Tesco superstore near the campus which is open 24/7. Sporting facilities are
first-rate, with over 60 acres (that's about 140 rai) of playing fields. There is also the famous "Bear Rock" climbing wall,
a brand new fitness suite and aerobics studio with 100 state of the art pieces of equipment, plus an Olymprene running track
for that daily early-morning jog before you attend lectures ……. !!!
Warwick has some of the best and most modern accommodation at any UK university. Many of the residences have landscaped views
and with standards among the highest in the UK. The Heronbank, Lakeside and (brand new) Sherbourne residences are situated
near Warwick Business School around a picturesque lake, making for a most peaceful and relaxing setting in which to live and
study. Claycroft is popular for being near Tesco, and the brand new Bluebell complex is perfect for Rootes and the Arts
Centre. Warwick accommodation is constantly being upgraded and is proud to have such an enviable reputation. All rooms in
campus accommodation have in-room Internet access, and many have en suite facilities. Many students also prefer to live
off-campus in University-managed houses either near the University in the quiet suburbs of Coventry or in the nearby charming
and historic towns of Leamington Spa and Kenilworth.

MSc Economics and Finance
"Life in Warwick is simply fantastic and never disappointing. Once I stepped on to Warwick Campus, I really fitted into this
place in every aspect, with the great environment and wide range of academic facilities from the library to learning
First remembrance during the orientation week is just full of fun. Although studying here is extremely different from what I
am used to in Thailand, it really gives me the motivation towards my career prospect and develops my learning skill with the
high caliber professors from both Warwick Business School and the Department of Economics. I really enjoy the multicultural
environment in which people from all over the world get together and there are always endless stories to share among us.
Warwick does not only enrich students academically, but also provides the foundation for the career prospect with the
exclusive career services and company presentations to ensure the employment opportunities for Warwick graduates."
BA Politics with International Studies
"The University of Warwick is regarded as one of the most prestigious universites here in the UK, with a particularly strong
Politics Department. This reputation was a key reason why I was so attracted to studying here. Once term started, my love for
Warwick grew because of the friendly culture and immense range of activities. Since Warwick is a campus university, you feel
very close to everyone. I have made lifetime friends from all over the world.
The Students' Union has made my time here so worthwhile. You have endless opportunities to try new things, or continue what
you enjoy doing. For instance, I love volleyball and have joined the Warwick Volleyball Team, where we compete against other
universities across the UK
My advice to those applying to Warwick would be to open up and gain as many experiences as you can whilst you are here. Life
here is a truly spectacular journey to fully develop your potential in every aspect possible."
MSc Supply Engineering and Logistics
"Coming to Warwick is one of the best decisions and experiences in my life. Warwick is more than a university. After a
comprehensive class, you can still refresh yourself at the Sports Center, or meet your friends and socialize at the Union.
The trips and events organised by the International Office to places such as Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon are a great way
to spend your weekend. I have also taken part in Host UK, which gave me the opportunity to experience traditional British
Each year, the University of Warwick provides a range of awards for students from all over the world. I was lucky enough to
be awarded the Thailand Postgraduate Scholarship, which is a valuable achievement and has become a great motivation for me to
succeed in my academic goal at Warwick. I believe that my year and experience in Warwick will further my future life and
"Easily put, the three main reasons why I chose the University of Warwick to continue my education: its academic reputation,
its campus environment and its international community.
Warwick's prestigious Business School has achieved top 5 rankings for some time. I find that the variety of modules available
here offers great benefits for students. The diverse groups of staff who come from various parts of the world have also lived
up to the high teaching ranking category.
I am amazed by the level of diversity at Warick. I have made friends from all over the world, friends whose countries I have
visited, and friends who have come to visit me in Thailand during holidays.
My advice to you is to take up all the opportunities available to you here in Warwick and experience as much as you can
whilst you still have the time. Do not forget to live a balanced life and remember to work hard and play hard

International Technology Management Graduate 2008-2009
"I would definitely say that my MSc has helped me immensely in my career – not only in terms of gaining my positions at
Ansell and Unilever, but being able to quickly make an impact on the business too
After gaining my first degree in Packaging Technology at Chiang Mai University, I worked in Research and Development for
an international cosmetics manufacturer in Thailand. Although I did enjoy my two years there, my role was very technically
biased and I realised that to take my career further, I would need to develop my understanding of management and business as
a whole. Studying for a higher degree seemed like the obvious next step, so I researched courses in the US and UK to find out
which would best suit my particular needs and aspirations. WMG’s Masters programme in International Technology Management
really stood out for me. I liked the broad range of subjects, and the fact that the course is designed around managing
innovation and technological change in international business. Of course, Warwick’s reputation and high ranking was a big
I also wanted to improve my English language skills and broaden my experience of the world and of people. I had only ever
studied and worked in Thailand before, so it was an exciting opportunity to spend a year in the UK and become immersed in a
whole new culture.
I arrived at Warwick in late summer 2008 and was immediately impressed by the green and very beautiful campus. It’s set away
from the city, although still in the heart of the West Midlands manufacturing region. The university is self-contained so
everything you need is close by and you feel part of a stimulating academic community.
The course itself was as good as I hoped it would be. Each module was fascinating in its own right and I liked the way the
programme brought technical and business subjects together into one unified whole. It taught me that to gain a competitive
advantage in today’s international environment, companies need to continually focus on their ability to innovate and apply
new technologies across both their products and operating processes.
It was also extremely challenging. Some areas – like Financial Analysis and Control Systems for example – were brand new to
me and I have to admit that I found them quite difficult to grasp at first. But the staff at WMG were great; they were always
there to support me through every stage. That didn’t just include helping me with my studies, but how to make the most of
living and learning at Warwick University too.
For me, the best thing about the programme was that is focused on the application of ideas on a global business scale. As I
discovered after I left Warwick, this means that you can apply what you have learned quickly once you’re in the real world of
Another good thing was the chance to mix with people from all across the world. This was a great learning experience and I
made lots of new friends that I’m still in touch with regularly.
While I was in the UK, Ansell Ltd sourced my CV through an online job site and invited me for an interview, before offering
me a role in Bangkok as a Packaging Design Executive. After two years there, I was approached by Unilever to join them as
Technology Innovation Management and Quality Engineer.
What I learned at Warwick definitely helped me gain the job. My all-round knowledge of International Technology Management
was exactly what Unilever were looking for and, even after only two months in the role, I’m finding that elements of the
course are coming in useful in my day-to-day work: supply chain integration and technology transfer for example.
I would definitely say that my MSc has helped me immensely in my career – not only in terms of gaining my positions at Ansell
and Unilever, but being able to quickly make an impact on the business too. Just as important for me though, it was a
wonderful experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Engineering Business Management Graduate 2010-2011
"There was always support there when I needed it. The teaching staff were excellent and brought each subject I studied to
life. I enjoyed the way the course focused on the practical rather than just theoretical. Everything made sense as I could
see how subjects related to real world business situations."
Ploytip Jirasukprasert arrived from Thailand in 2010 to study for her MSc in Engineering Business Management. We asked her
to tell us about her experience of her course, life at Warwick and how she created an award-winning research paper from her
After gaining her first degree in Industrial Engineering King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Thailand,
Ploytip decided to take her education to the next level by studying for an MSc.
"To reach my career goals, I realised that I needed a further qualification", she explained. "WMG’s Masters programme seemed
perfect for me. I wanted to combine engineering with business, leadership and management. I also needed to improve my English
"I had achieved the highest grade on my BSc course, so I wanted to study with a top university. Many people I spoke to in
Thailand recommended WMG and with its high ranking, I felt that a qualification from Warwick would really mean
When Ploytip began her studies, she soon discovered that one of the most important qualities that a student needs is
discipline. "It was quite tough at first", she said. "There is a lot of work to do to tight deadlines. So although you have
the freedom to manage your own time, you need to be very disciplined in order to complete it. This reflects the real world
though, and I do believe that it’s an important part of the learning process".
"There was always support there when I needed it. The teaching staff were excellent and brought each subject I studied to
life. Also, I enjoyed the way the course focused on the practical rather than just theoretical. Everything made sense as I
could see how subjects related to real world business situations".
"It was great fun to work in teams with people from around the world too. Again, this prepares you for the real world of
working in international business where you have to interact with different people from different cultures and backgrounds.
Being educated from Warwick is not only about studying and getting the degree, but real friendship, enjoyment, happiness have
also come together. I could say that it has been one of the most memorable moments in my life."
From her dissertation project, Ploytip wrote a research paper entitled: "A Case Study of Defects Reduction in a Rubber Gloves
Manufacturing Process by Applying Six Sigma Principles and DMAIC Problem Solving Methodology".
"I had a good knowledge of Six Sigma and DMAIC principles, and I could see how they could be applied in this context",
explained Ploytip. "The project had a very practical angle as I was working with a factory in Thailand that had a problem
with product quality".
"The application and results of DMAIC methodology indicated that the correlation between oven temperature and conveyor belt
speed contributed to the defects. So then I used a number of quality and statistical tools to obtain optimum values which
could be investigated. These helped to bring about a 50% reduction in defects, improving the Sigma level of the process from
2.4 to 2.9".
Working with her supervisor, Ploytip submitted her paper to the 3rd International Conference on Industrial Engineering and
Operations Management in Turkey where it was presented to an international audience of academics, researchers and
industrialists and published in the official proceedings of the conference. Her paper was awarded the Best Track Paper Award
in the Lean Six Sigma category.
"I was absolutely delighted", she said. "But I do want to thank my supervisor, Dr Jose Arturo Garza-Reyes, for his support at
every stage. He was always there with helpful comments and suggestions. I am sure that the paper would not have achieved the
award without his valuable help".
Dr Garza-Reyes also commented that "The publication and presentation of Ploytip’s project at an international conference and
the award it received is just a little example of the high standard work carried out by MSc students at WMG and the support
they get from the teaching staff. I am sure that this is an important value added factor that MSc candidates should consider
when deciding whether to come to do a Master degree at WMG. After leaving Warwick, Ploytip soon found herself working for a
UK company, helping them to launch their products into the Thai market, facilitating trade and providing high-quality
"I am not sure where my career will take me in the future", she concluded. "It is still early days. My time at Warwick really
inspired me though – and I know that what I learned there has provided a strong foundation for my future career in
reputation means you can be sure there is rigorous research underpinning our teaching.
