The University of Warwick was founded in 1965 and has rapidly established itself as one of the United Kingdom's leading research universities, achieving 7th place overall among multi-faculty institutions in the nationwide 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). This ranked it alongside the University of Manchester as the top universities in the United Kingdom outside Oxford, Cambridge and London.
Warwick has a reputation for being the most enterprising and innovative University in the United Kingdom. As well as its strengths across most of the traditional disciplines in medicine, science, social science, and arts and humanities, it hosts internationally-recognised centres for inter-disciplinary research in areas such as systems biology, complexity science, energy, scientific computing, global and regional governance, competiveness in the global economy, race and ethnic studies, history of medicine, renaissance studies, and global history and cultures. Many Warwick programmes have strong links to business, industry, and cultural institutions.
The University is located at the heart of England in a pleasant, green belt campus setting at the edge of the city of Coventry and with easy access to London (just over an hour by train), Oxford and the surrounding countryside of Warwickshire (including Stratford-upon-Avon). It has strong academic links with the Royal Shakespeare Company and is home to a major regional cultural complex at the Warwick Arts Centre.Graduate study and research at Warwick
