Internationalisation: Vision

The below Internationalisation of Education Strategy was approved by Senate in January 2022, covering the period from 2022 – 2025.


Develop students as global citizens

Warwick’s vision is to develop students as global citizens, integrating a global dimension in the philosophy, design and delivery of educational programmes and offering solutions to global issues through strong connections with our local communities, research partners, industry and curricula.

Our global perspective and reputation

The framing and implementation of internationalisation priorities supports our global perspective, reputation and provides a future-oriented learning environment through our curricular and co-curricular offering, research priorities, partnerships, campus and global presence.

Internationalisation as a transformative process for all

Warwick sees internationalisation as a transformative process, of its curricula, of its staff and student community and the broader student experience. We recognise the vital contribution of international students and staff to our community and aspire for all Warwick students to develop intercultural competence and curiosity whether at home or abroad, able to operate and communicate effectively in multicultural teams and environments.

An inclusive environment

An internationalised learning environment is an inclusive one, in which students of all sociocultural and educational backgrounds are enabled to participate fully and where curiosity about, and connection-making across, cultures is expected and valued.

An ongoing and dynamic process

Internationalisation is an ongoing and dynamic process of enhancement and development of all university practices and activities in and through which HE can adapt, benefit from and contribute to the global world.

A global lens provides a connected and global learning community

Internationalisation enables and encourages students to approach their study and lives through a global lens, informed and challenged by experiences and practices beyond their immediate contexts and points of reference. It is key to providing a connected and global learning community to students, staff and non-academic stakeholders which is necessary in order to address global challenges, articulate the local specificity of global problems and transcend disciplinary, language and national borders.
