Build employability skills for lifelong success

The Skills team helps ensure all Warwick students are ready for life after graduation - and equipped with the skills they need for a successful future.

We run programmes and interventions that are purposeful, relevant, and grounded in research, and that give students opportunities and support for recognising, developing, reflecting on, and articulating their full range of skills.

Our core programmes are Sprint, URSS, and the Warwick Award – find out more about each of them below.

Warwick Award

Develop vital skills to improve your employability, whilst completing your undergraduate or taught master’s programme, at a pace that suits you.

The Award is free for all undergraduate, taught postgraduate, exchange, and degree apprenticeship students.

You can now sign up for the Warwick Award using your Gradintelligence account.


The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme enables undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research project.

The scheme is open to any UG student at Warwick of a full-time or part-time course, in any year including first and final year students.


Sprint is an immersive personal development programme for female university students.

Designed by the Springboard Consultancy in conjunction with Oxford and Cambridge universities, Sprint helps to equip students with skills to enable them to accelerate their potential in all areas of life.
