Summer 2021 projects now closed
Update regarding Government announcement
The UK Government announced that Universities may return to face-to-face teaching after 17th May. This does not impact the projects, they can still be completed remotely.
If there are any on-campus meetings, these will be discussed with individual supervisors and will only happen under the required conditions.
Aims of the programme
Approaches to learning are changing, the traditional model of mass lectures has evolved significantly. New concepts of delivery, assessment, feedback and communication changed the student journey. To allow us to explore new approaches, WMG offers an internship to work with academic staff to explore and develop concepts of teaching and learning (pedagogy). Whilst exploring these pedagogical possibilities, interns can gain research and employability skills.
WMG provides a £1,750 tax-free bursary in return for eight weeks of research over the summer vacation period (it is possible to split the internship to allow for other commitments e.g. travel). Students are expected to cover their own living costs during this time. Successful applicants can arrange their own start and finish dates with their supervisor.
Some projects require specific subject knowledge, many others require broader skills such as analysis, critical review and multimedia capabilities.
Who can apply?
You may apply if you will be returning to the University of Warwick as an undergraduate in the Autumn Term, 2021. Students from all faculties are encouraged to apply for an internship.
If you are in your final year or a postgraduate, please do not apply as you will not be eligible for a bursary.
