Students undertaking work placements in France will probably be asked for a 'Convention de Stage'. Similarly, students undertaking a work placement in Spain may require a 'Convenio de Colaboración'. In other countries you will need to utilise the Tripartite Agreement. All of these are a three-way agreement between the student, the University and the host company.
Students undertaking placements are respectfully asked to only use the templates below and not to sign a document provided by the placement provider themselves. The University of Warwick is unable to sign any document other than the approved templates below.
This procedure is in place to protect you and the University from any adverse liabilities and to ensure neither it (nor you) will be disadvantaged in any way.
For any placement occurring wholly or partially during term-time, agreements will only be signed if the placement has been approved by the student’s department.
To avoid delays you must follow the following procedure:
- ensure that you fully complete and sign the document/s, (including the 'objectives' section in both the host language and English for the Convention and the Convenio). The University will not sign agreements unless they have been completed and signed by the employer and student first.
- When the agreement has been completed correctly, submit your documents to convention at warwick dot ac dot uk. You should use this email address only. DO NOT email the Head of Student Records, as you will not receive a reply and your query will remain unanswered.
The relevant signature will be sought on behalf of the University and your form will then be returned to you, or to the placement provider. The normal processing time for a standard agreement is 10 working days.
These agreements are for current, fully enrolled students only.
N.B. The University cannot sign agreements for individuals who have completed their course and are arranging a placement in a personal capacity.
