    It functions as "at". And I would use "at" in that sentence.

    As she is apprently working in Cyprus, I imagine that she is completing her thesis on-line or by correspondance with, rather than at, the University of Warwick.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
