EC240-120 Study Year Abroad

Principal Learning Outcomes

Subject knowledge and understanding: Demonstrate an enhanced knowledge and understanding of their subject specialism(s).

Key Skills: Demonstrate that they have developed the qualities and transferable skills necessary for working or studying in another country and in a different academic system.

Key Skills: Successfully engage with the demands of study in a different country, with enhanced oral and written language skills (in some cases in a language other than English)

Key Skills: Have developed transferable skills in sensitivity to diversity in terms of culture and people.


The syllabus will be arranged on an individual basis in consultation with the department and the host institution. It will normally comprise a combination of taught courses and any language training required. It is subject to the approval of the Director of Study Abroad. Modules selected must not duplicate those taken by students when they are at Warwick but must be chosen to provide adequate preparation for modules students will take when they return to Warwick. Any amendments to the approved study plan must be approved by the Director of Study Abroad. Students are expected to take the same total workload as that of a typical full time student at the host institution and be equivalent to 120 credits at Warwick.
