If you are participating in other forms of exchange between your home institution and a EUTOPIA partner institution, please contact the programme convenor, Lewis Beer lewis dot beer at warwick dot ac dot uk, to discuss the eligibility of these additional activities.


Coaching

To support your reflective practice and your compilation of a reflective portfolio, you will be able to attend group coaching sessions in which you can discuss your international experiences with your fellow students, and with the guidance of a member of the EUTOPIA team.

Details of these sessions and how to register for them will be sent to you after you enrol using the form below.


Reflective Portfolio

To demonstrate your international learning, you will compile a reflective portfolio which can include essays, artworks, and multimedia elements such as a video diary. It is expected that your portfolio will amount to roughly 3000 words (or equivalent).

In your portfolio, you will be expected to reflect deeply on the issues discussed, measuring personal development and considering multiple points of view. You will also show how you have fulfilled the following learning outcomes:

  • Plurilingual: demonstrate engagement with one or more non-native languages and understanding of the multilingual nature of internationalisation
  • Intercultural: demonstrate awareness of relations between different national cultures and ability to reflect on these
  • Intersectoral: demonstrate transdisciplinary knowledge and experience in an international, non-academic context
  • Challenge-based: demonstrate awareness of and engagement with local or global challenges from an international perspective

Your reflective process will be supported by learning resources and live coaching sessions.


Please enrol using the form below. You will be contacted by a member of the EUTOPIA team.

Please note that the EUCI is facilitated through a collaboration between all six universities of the EUTOPIA Alliance. The application form is located on the University of Warwick website, but applications may be reviewed by members of staff from any of the six EUTOPIA partners.
