Our vision is to be a world-class university one with a dynamic, enterprising approach to solving global challenges; one that enables students to create their place in the world; one that defines the university of tomorrow.

Warwick has an exciting future ahead. We’re building upon our outstanding reputation, secured through our ability to combine excellence, creativity and intellectual rigour with agility, professionalism and sustainability.

We’re one of the UK’s most dynamic and progressive universities, acknowledged by our status as The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year and a notable performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. We’ll look to sustain our consistent ranking in the top flight of UK league tables, with an ambition to equal that in the world league tables.

We’ll further develop our productive relationship with the business and commercial sectors, where we’re regarded as a pioneer of partnership working. We’ll identify new activities that will further diversify our income base. Our perspective is global, and this extends to the teaching and learning experience of our students. Partnership and collaboration between academics and students is right at the heart of our education offer.

Our Values:

Pursuit of excellence

Excellence is a given. We strive to be the best across our core research and teaching, as well as in everything that supports what we do. We also strive to do even better next time.

Ambition and drive

Our success is driven by the desire of our staff and students to challenge convention, create something new, and play their part in shaping the future.


We’re forward-looking, fast-moving, flexible and free-thinking, quick to explore new ideas, to exploit fresh opportunities and to take well considered risks.

Making a difference

We aim to show the world what a modern university can do: delivering a service, solving problems and providing sustainability for the community and global society.


Ours is a lively university community that encourages and challenges ideas, promotes dignity, respect, health and wellbeing, and makes Warwick welcoming.


We’ve always believed in widening participation, in being open, friendly, easy to work with as equal partners, and as non-hierarchical as possible.

Global perspective

Our cosmopolitan outlook and identity enrich our thinking and inform our quest for global relevance and world-class impact.


We’re self-sufficient, unafraid to upset the status quo, to redefine academic parameters and satisfy our appetite for exploration, innovation and leadership.
