Tips from previous students

  • Shared accommodation encouraged frequent social interactions and facilitated many social events.


Staff were very welcoming, and the other students were really friendly and helped me get around and get oriented to the place.

Was a highly rewarding placement with ample learning opportunities. Was integrated into the medical team very well with no instances where I was made to feel unwelcome or out of place as a medical student.

I had a very positive experience at Warwick, everyone was welcoming and friendly and I was given many opportunities to learn on the job. I highly recommend Warwick for an RRM placement!
