Message to incoming visiting students
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Warwick. This is just to let you know that there's no need to panic that you've not yet had details of module choices etc. We will explain the module choice and registration process to you in the visiting student welcome meeting in Welcome week, so the most important thing for now is that you attend that meeting in order to understand the process.
As that page explains, after the meeting we will send you a module request form by email which you will need to fill in and return, after having consulted the relevant pages on the SMLC website where we list which modules have spaces (for SMLC modules) and contacting departmental administrators for external depts. to get the same information if you want to study any modules outside of SMLC.
Everything will become much clearer once you've attended that first meeting!
The UK Government has announced today (4 August 2021) that the University of Warwick will be awarded £2.6 million for international student mobility, as part of the inaugural Turing Scheme.
Warwick is one of the world’s top 100 universities, and one of the ways it has achieved that position is because it is a globally connected institution. Its staff and students learn, work, and research as part of a highly international community, and more than 1000 Warwick students each year also take the opportunity to study and work abroad at one of the University’s many worldwide partner institutions.
