Warwick named as one of world’s ‘most international’ universities

University of WarwickThe University of Warwick has been named as one of the world’s most international universities by the THE (Times Higher Education).

Recognised for its international outlook, research influence and global academic reputation, Warwick ranked 17th in the world – with currently 41% of research and academic staff being non-UK nationals, over 9000 international students, 554 outgoing and 643 incoming Study Abroad students and alumni residing in 192 countries.

Through initiatives including the ongoing development of Warwick in California, the Monash Warwick Alliance and Warwick in Venice the University of Warwick nurtures its global presence and outreach. Furthermore, with Going Global, our Intercultural Training and our International Volunteering possibilities, we encourage our students to develop a global perspective. Finally, we are continuously investing in the development of new strategic international partnerships in research and education.

Commenting on the rankings the University of Warwick Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stuart Croft, said:

“I am delighted that the University of Warwick has been recognised for our commitment to developing a truly international university, providing an increasing range of opportunities for students and staff to study and undertake in ground-breaking research and teaching.”

· Warwick in California

A partnership with the University Development Foundation to develop teaching and research, and a physical presence, for Warwick in California.

· Monash Warwick Alliance

The Monash Warwick Alliance forges strong ties between our two young, ambitious, research-led universities, allowing for example dynamic collaborative research between two continents, and fostering complementary teaching and learning strengths. New opportunities are arising from the recent 5-year renewal of the Agreement which will empower us to tackle world-relevant and strategically important problems.

· Warwick in Venice

The University of Warwick’s full-time base in Venice, the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava, provides opportunities for teaching, research and partnership activity.

· Go Global

Our students have a real chance to stand out in the international world of work and research, gain a global perspective and develop the intercultural skills to be a truly positive force in today’s global society. Students can choose to take part in several initiatives including language cafés; mixed nationality group work; and study, work or volunteering abroad.

· Intercultural Training

However they choose to Go Global at Warwick, our innovative programme helps students to develop the critical skills needed to encounter difference without stereotyping and to be able to articulate such skills in a global workplace context.

· International Volunteering

Our students are making a difference through numerous volunteering programmes in the local community and across the world. Through our philanthropically-funded Warwick in Africa and Warwick Laksh programmes, we support maths and English teaching in schools in South Africa, Tanzania and Ghana and in New Delhi, India.
