Linking Research & Teaching

As one of the leading research-led Universities in the UK, Warwick is in an ideal position to maximise the benefits to both staff and students by making the most of potential links between teaching and research. For this reason the second phase of the Learning and Teaching Strategy included the development of the various dimensions of linking research and teaching. On this site we use the term research-based learning to refer to all the dimensions of linking research and teaching.
