Teaching and Learning
Teaching will take place on weekdays with weekends left free for social activities and independent study.
Each course will include 4 hours of teaching on most weekdays which includes:
- 3 hours of lectures
- 1 hour seminar class in small groups
There will also be free study periods each day to help you to digest what you have learnt and continue with private or group study.
All of our courses have an optional assessment which is usually a two hour exam on the final day of the programme. Some of our courses set coursework throughout the programme to assess students, please see each course webpage for further information. Towards the end of the final week, there will be revision classes for courses which have an optional 2-hour examination.
All students will be given a certificate of attendance on the final day of the programme. Students who sit the optional course assessment will also be sent an official transcript of results which can often be used to gain credit from your home institution. Students that wish to gain credit should contact their Study Abroad Office or the office in their university that deals with external credit. It is up to a student's home institution as to how much credit is awarded but we are happy to provide any necessary information to your registry or academic advisor, to help them evaluate our courses. Each Warwick Summer School course is generally equivalent to one module from an undergraduate degree.
Teaching will take place at St Mary’s beautiful self-contained campus at Strawberry Hill. All of our comfortable teaching spaces are equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment and you will of course have access to wider campus facilities throughout the programme including the library and additional study spaces.
