How to apply for academic credit.
This city is deeply multicultural, with one in three Londoners foreign-born, representing 270 nationalities and 300 tongues. What unites them and visitors alike is the English language, for this is both our lingo's birthplace and its epicentre. These cultures season the culinary aromas on London’s streets, the often exotic clothing people wear and the music they listen to.
London is as much about wide-open vistas and leafy landscape escapes as it is high-density, sight-packed urban exploration. Central London is where the major museums, galleries and most iconic sights congregate, but visit Hampstead Heath or the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to flee the crowds and frolic in wide open green expanses. You can also venture even further out to Kew Gardens, Richmond or Hampton Court Palace for beautiful panoramas of riverside London, followed by a pint in a quiet waterside pub.
The University of Warwick was founded in 1965 as part of a government initiative and has become a prime attraction for some of the biggest names in worldwide business and industry.
The university has an acknowledged reputation for excellence in research and teaching, innovation and links with business and industry. A third of the student body comes from overseas.
