Philosophy Department to Launch Student Work Placement Intercalated Year
The Philosophy Department are launching a new option for students who are interested in undertaking a year long work placement as part of their studies. Students who are keen to take up this option can now apply, at the end of years 1 or 2, to transfer on to intercalated versions of their current philosophy programme, on which the intercalated year is spent on work placement. (Students will have to arrange the placement themselves). During their intercalated year, students will take a special module, requiring a report on their placement year; this will be marked pass/fail, and those who fail revert to the initial 3-year variant of their programme. This means that students can work for a year in the midst of their studies without taking temporary withdrawal, and their doing so will be reported on their transcripts.
Please contact Guy Longworth (G.H.Longworth@warwick.ac.uk) for further information and if you have any questions.
