The University is launching this week our first monthly challenge aimed at primary school children in Key Stage 2. The project will take place between February and July 2021 and is designed and delivered by four Undergraduate Warwick Students.
The project is entirely digital and can be done from home or school on a computer. It is asynchronous so the children get to meet our students indirectly via videos and blogs. The activity is opened to all, so please feel free to use for your own events or with your own children. Challenges will be released in the first week of each month.
Warwick Institute of Engagement is excited to announce the appointment of 38 Foundation Fellows, 27 Honorary Fellows and 32 Associate Fellows of the Institute.

International Political Economy (IPE) graduates have an opportunity to join a series of “online get-togethers” between IPE alumni and current students. The idea is for students to learn from your experiences on leaving university and starting your professional career. The focus is not so much on specific job opportunities but to hear from you and your personal development. If you would be interested in getting involved with this, please get in touch.
We want to support parents, children and teachers with home schooling once again during lockdown.
Find a collection of our online education resources for school children and signposted external sources. All of these resources are either free, or they have been made free during the period of school closures.

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.
