Our Concept

Warwick Congress is a student-run initiative enthused by the ambition to educate students from all backgrounds and interests. Our primary motive is to unite the disciplines of Finance, Economics, Law and Politics to a single platform thus allowing students to gain a holistic perspective on the issues surrounding the world today.

We have found a significant void in the market concerning events encompassing both academic and career focused elements. We aim to bridge this gap by inviting influential speakers to analyse the yearly three current affair topics from the perspectives of the four cornerstone-subjects, followed by distinctly separate networking opportunities. Through Warwick Congress, we hope to inspire and motivate students from a myriad of backgrounds to take an interest in not only how the four disciplines shape the society, but also to spark or strengthen a passion into a variety of career paths.

Our team values diversity, not by restricting the members to the students of the four disciplines but by building the enterprise with students from diverse backgrounds. With the help of our collaborating societies, we pursue our project to be diversely open to all students, professional and educative.
