The Study UK team is running the free Preparing for Work MOOC again, beginning on 19 October.
The course is designed for current international students at UK universities who are about to graduate from undergraduate or postgraduate courses, as well as recent graduates and international alumni who already have some work experience.
Earlier this year, Warwick hosted the UK’s first ever Women in Economics Student Workshop which brought the students’ perspective into the debate on female under-representation in the discipline. Following the event, Warwick students were inspired to establish a new Women in Economics student society. They are now looking for any Economics alumnae who might be willing to speak at a future event (albeit virtually for now) about their career journey since graduating, and to offer any tips or advice from their own experiences.
The Student Opportunity team are looking for volunteer mentors to support students from a widening participation background.
The programme aims to provide students with an opportunity to grow their confidence, learn how they may develop professional skills and gain an insight into professional life or different industries to support their career journey.
Warwick Summer School is a three week programme open to undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals and recommended by 97% of our Alumni.
The Summer School also offers a fully-inclusive 10 night programme for 16-18 year olds.
The Warwick campus is to become an Athletes Village during the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Interview with Thierry Cambray written by Melissa Chan-Cheape
"I never thought that I would be graduating at home along with my Mum and Dad. I never thought that my celebrations would consist of a family meal with polite conversation and a glass of wine. Nor did I ever think that I would be entering the job market during such a hard, uncertain time period as a global pandemic".
Centre for Education Studies alumna Anita Chagar offers advice to our new graduates.
"Don’t consider ‘The Class of 2020/The COVID-19 Cohort’ as a label for uncertainty, adversity or loss, but as a label for determination, resilience and a new way of achieving success."
WBS alumna Valerie Patrick offers advice to our new graduates.
"This is a time to evaluate what you have accomplished, think strategically and ask yourself what you could do to make the world a better place."
Philosophy alumnus Peter Blackman offers advice to our new graduates.
"Be Proud – you are Warwick graduates; persevere and be broad minded about the sort of future you seek."
WBS alumnus Stuart Humphreys offers advice to our new graduates.
"It may seem a little trite for me to say I feel fortunate to have graduated during one major economic downturn and to have subsequently graduated again during another."
