Following on from the WIHEA funded projects on Student Research, this project seeks to investigate the student experience of internationalisation at Warwick, another key strand of the Education Strategy.
This project aims to map exactly what Warwick is offering to students by conducting an audit of internationalisation activity across the institution. This includes capturing the different requirements that academic departments have of their students when they are studying or working abroad (including short term programmes such as the URSS, summer schools, Warwick in Africa etc) and how these connect to academic learning outcomes.
This will enable us to provide a full picture of the internationalisation (as it links to student experience) offering at the University, identify any areas of good practice in departments, identify overlap between initiatives and enable us to investigate how, if at all, current programmes link to the curriculum.
It will also enable us to communicate the University’s offering in this area to students more effectively. This communication is the subject of a possible parallel project aiming to curate and present the impact of internationalisation activity on the student experience and develop a digital MyWarwick internationalisation portal to ensure all internationalisation opportunities are represented in a coherent way to students.
