Warwick students: Academic departments

Understand what subjects our students are studying whilst at Warwick.

Our students are drawn from over 30 Academic Departments.*

Because Warwick students currently undertake a more traditional undergraduate study format, which have relatively few placement opportunities as part of their course, each department is responsible for managing the process of matching students who are undertaking course-related placements as a part of their degree. If this is something that interests you, we can put you in contact with the relevant academic department.

UK and EU undergraduate students have the opportunity to take a voluntary year out of their degree, in order to undertake a specific work experience opportunity – these students supplement the numbers taking a formal placement year, but vacation and part-time work are enduringly more popular with Warwick students.

Departments at Warwick that currently include industrial or work based placements during the academic year include:

  • Applied Linguistics
  • Chemistry
  • Comparative American Studies
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • Education Studies
  • Engineering
  • Global Sustainable Development
