Student Opportunity: Skills

Geometric pattern
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 URSS and the Warwick Award. We are also working on developing some new personal development training opportunities for students - watch this space for more information at the start of 2023-24.

Also, don't forget to check out Skillscast - our podcast all about developing your skills while at University!

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.

Intercultural Training

Better understand, communicate with, and build effective relationships with those from different cultural backgrounds.

The programme includes a number of workshops and an online course. Each of these contributes towards the Warwick Award.


Helping you realise your potential.

Thrive™ is an interactive in-person programme for women, where you will hear from inspirational speakers, and have the option to work with a mentor to support you on your personal development journey.
