For 2021/2022

Two study abroad placements at the University of Gothenburg have been allocated to Film studies students his year.  

The International Office has allocated certain study abroad placements to Theatre and Performance studies (single and joint honours), given the history of study abroad exchanges between TPS at Warwick and Theatre departments abroad. Listed below are the study abroad opportunities that theatre studies single and joint honours can benefit from in the first instance. 

Please note that Theatre studies students, the History of Art students, and Warwick Writing programme students could study abroad after their first or second year of studies at Warwick. Film studies students at Warwick could study abroad only after their second year of studies.   

Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies does not have a study abroad provision written in their degrees. We will work with the centre on developing a bespoke study abroad provision for the Centre’s students for future years. 

Applications for students to apply for student mobility are planned to open on Friday 3rd December 2021. This process involves students selecting their top choices of where they wish to go and drafting a personal statement. This is managed by the Student Mobility team but the information gathered is then passed to Departmental Coordinators to review and allocate our  departmental places to our students. We will then pass our final allocations back the Student Mobility team who inform the students of the outcome and proceed to work with students on nomination and application to their host universities. More information shall follow on this shortly. 

If you have missed our most recent Study Abroad information session, we would recommend that you check the recording of the main Student Mobility briefing session (Recording of Student Mobility Briefing for students interested in year abroad 2022/23 - News (
