About Us

Warwick is widely regarded as one of the world's leading international universities – in our staff and student composition, transnational research, and the international opportunities it offers.

Being international is in our DNA. Staff, researchers, and students thrive in our inclusive and international community, which nurtures relationships with education and research institutions across Europe and the wider world.

We aim to develop enduring partnerships that enrich our knowledge and resources and drive innovation and excellence in research and education. We are a trusted ally of a broad range of organisations and supporters – UK overseas missions, non-governmental organisations, funding bodies, industry, alumni networks – and through these we advocate for mutually beneficial partnerships.

Working Together

Our experienced International Strategy and Relations team supports international relationships and research that champions new ways of bringing students, academics, and professionals together to tackle global challenges.

We focus on five strategic regions – China, Europe, Australia, North America, and Africa, but understand the value in nurturing wider relationships from around the world that are built on passion and commitment.

Warwick's strategy for 2030: 'Excellence with Purpose'

In the past five years, the University of Warwick has seen extraordinary change, both within our walls and in the world at large. Our achievements have been outstanding, including being named the first Russell Group "University of the Year for Teaching Quality 2022" (by The Times and The Sunday Times), achieving Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2023 and receiving a record number of student applications. At the same time, we've navigated through challenges like the Covid pandemic, Brexit, and a volatile global landscape.

As the landscape continues to evolve, it's an ideal time to reshape, refresh and renew our "Excellence with Purpose" 2030 strategy. This renewed vision will not only elevate our future goals, it will also reaffirm our commitment to making a positive, lasting impact for years to come.

To achieve our ambitious goals we have outlined our key commitments to International, as one of our strategic areas of focus:
  • Strengthen our partnerships across Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australia.
  • Enrich the international opportunities inherent in our educational offering.
  • Develop more support for our researchers to collaborate across global networks.
  • Further enhance the international diversity of our student body and champion the thriving global community on our campus.
  • Grow our global influence and reputation.
