This conference has been organised by the RSC Academy and the University of Warwick, with the support of the Oxford Study Group.
The RSA Academy will be a centre of excellence. Our aim is to provide the highest quality education for all our students, raise their aspirations and attainment and build on their individual needs, talents and abilities. Our vision is innovative and farreaching – we have established links with a number of education partners both at home and abroad for the benefit of all our students. We want all our students to experience a rich and varied curriculum which fully prepares them for life within the 21st century. Our approach to teaching and learning is unique and is based on our Opening Minds curriculum – a set of competences which challenge students in their ability to think, to learn, to manage people, information and situations. All of which will lead them towards being good citizens who are capable of influencing and changing the world in which they will live. Our curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of all students, build on their strengths and improve their areas of development.
University of Warwick
The University of Warwick is globally connected, forward-looking and entrepreneurial. We create new ways of thinking and achieving: making us stand out from our competitors and the more ‘traditional universities’ and creating an inspiring place to study and undertake research. Warwick is one of the UK’s great success stories. In less than fifty years since being founded we’ve become one of the UK’s best universities, consistently at the top of UK league tables and we’re rapidly climbing the international league tables of world class universities. We’re a university that champions independent thinking and as well as being founded, first and foremost, on academic excellence, a key driver of the Warwick success story so far is our entrepreneurial spirit - a key strength is our relevance to society and our close links with business and industry. Companies tap into Warwick knowledge to develop their own strengths and ensure they remain at the cutting edge within their industries. And that cutting edge insight is developed out of truly world class research: Warwick ranks 7th overall in the UK according to the latest Research Assessment Exercise. To understand how Warwick has come so far in such a short space of time is to understand the character of the University. The success of Warwick, underpinned by innovation, entrepreneurialism and academic excellence, is driven by the exceptional talent of our staff, students and alumni.
