Classic and Ancient History are introducing a new taugh MA programme from October of this year.
The MA in Visual and Material Culture is focussed on the field of art, numismatics or epigraphy in the Ancient World. To quote from the department website:
The MA will provide a thorough grounding to anyone considering further research in the fields of art, numismatics or epigraphy, or working on an historical topic that involves the consideration of material evidence. It will also be of interest to students who wish to continue their study of the ancient world for an additional year, perhaps with the aim of subsequently entering a career in museums or curatorial work, or in education.

This summer (4th – 9th September (Is that still summer?)) Warwick University is running a Summer School for postgraduates and young researchers on Mathematics for Biomedical Engineering.
The course is will help you in developing the understanding and practical experience of "mathematically describing problems encountered in Biomedical Engineering."
In the words of Charlotte Heatherington from the Forum for Science and Technology in Medicine:
The summer school will be lead by experts in the field of mathematical modelling of biomedical systems and will consist of a combination of plenary sessions and group tutorial seesions. Students will also have the opprtunity to use computer based modelling software as part of the tutorial sessions. There are three major topic areas covered: cardio-respiratory modelling, compartmental modelling and drug taretting, and biomechanical modelling.The week week ends with group problem solving exercises which will be presented to the other students and faculty.
More information at the link above, including who will be speaking, schedules, costs and how to register.

A century after Albert Einstein published his most famous ideas, physicists will today commemorate the occasion by trying to demolish one of them.
Astronomers will tell experts gathering at Warwick University to celebrate the anniversary of the great man's "miracle year" that the speed of light – Einstein's unchanging yardstick that underpins his special theory of relativity – might be slowing down.

I have had a request for information about studying Law at a postgraduate level at Warwick Uni. Below are some useful information sources about Law here, plus some info about International Study, as our enquirer was from overseas:
From the Warwick Law School website:
Ever since its founding in the 1960s, the Law School has had a strong commitment to the study of law in its widest international context. This commitment has been reflected especially in our postgraduate programmes. Our first taught postgraduate degree was the LLM Law in Development. We subsequently introduced a second LLM programme in International Economic Law, to reflect the growing significance of international and regional institutions and legal regulation in governing the world economy. With both of these degrees, Warwick was at the forefront of understanding law at a global level, even before the term ‘globalisation’ became so popular.
A new Masters in International Development Law and Human Rights is being introduced in 2005/06
Alternatively there are options for Research Degrees in Law
