Warwick in North America

The UK and the US are two research powerhouses: our scientists have won an impressive 358 Nobel Prizes1 and, between us, we host all of the world’s top 10 universities2. The US is the number one choice for co-authorship for UK researchers, and joint publications have a citation impact 2.75 times greater than the global average3. UK Research and Innovation has recently published more than a dozen case studies of UK and US researchers working together to achieve social, health, environmental and economic impact.

The University of Warwick is committed to building mutually beneficial international collaborations and partnerships with the business community and other sectors. Our interdisciplinary research is internationally leading, impactful, and provocative. It's helping to change the world, making lives healthier, safer, more resilient and more just.

Our academics work closely with counterparts in leading higher education institutions, industry partners and funding bodies across North America on a wide variety of projects.

We aspire to attract the best and most talented international students and are pleased to welcome over 350 students from North America every year. Through the strength of our partnerships we are able to offer a Double Masters programme in Politics and International Service with American University and a Double Masters in Global Governance with the University Waterloo. These joint programmes give our students the chance to study from two pedagogically and culturally different approaches, strengthening their academic versatility as a global citizen.

A partnership between Professor Kirsty Hooper, Warwick, and Associate Professor Joseba Gabilondo, Michigan State, has won AHRC funding for a project which aims to transform our understanding of the entangled relations between the British and Spanish Empires during the 18th and 19th centuries.

“We are committed to extending and deepening our relationships with partners in North America, and to pursue opportunities for funding, student mobility, and research teaching collaboration."

Carsten Maple, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor (North America)
