FAQs and Timeline

You will have a team of up to 8 students that we will assign to you based on the project detail you have given. Students will have to have applied for a place and undergone a detailed induction programme. Students will be from multiple Universities, be located around the world and will be studying a variety of degree disciplines.

During the four-week project phase in Summer 2022, we suggest checking in with your student team at least once per week, via the Microsoft Teams platform, and ideally via a video call. We also recommend that you are available to reply to any questions from your team, during the four weeks. We recommend being clear when describing your project to your student team. It’s also a good idea to have an ice breaker session with your team to get to know each other during the first meeting.

Ideally, please provide as much detail as possible about your project brief. All students will have signed a Privacy Statement, so any information or data you provide is confidential. During your briefing, it’s good if you can share context and introduce your organisation and then drill down into what exactly you want the students to complete for you, potentially indicating where you give them freedom to do their own research. Also, do tell your student team how you would like to see the final report/presentation i.e. PDF, PowerPoint presentation.

We expect a total time commitment of up to 2 hours from you per week during the virtual internship. This includes a virtual pre-project briefing with your student team, regular check ins – and a final project presentation meeting.

We use Microsoft Teams which is supported by Warwick, secure and free to use. All work will happen through this platform including sharing files, working on documents and holding team chat and video calls.

Yes absolutely! They will love to hear from you, any advice will be much appreciated.
