What is Student Opportunity?
Student Opportunity enables you to develop a global perspective, become culturally aware, and have confidence to achieve your full potential and vision of career success.
We work across the University to develop your employability through our Employability Strategy and enhance your international experiences. Our student-facing teams are set out below.
We empower you to personalise your career path, build confidence and explore career possibilities. We support you to navigate employers’ recruitment and selection processes and enable you to engage with hundreds of organisations on campus and online.
We help you secure opportunities and gain the maximum benefit from work experience, supporting you through online learning, managed programmes and access to bursaries for TeamWork, the Warwick Internship Programme and international work experience opportunities funded through Erasmus or Turing.
We support you to develop the Warwick Core Skills and to reflect on, and articulate, your skills development. We run the Warwick Award which recognises skills development, the Undergraduate Research Support Scheme and the Sprint women’s development programme.
We strive to internationalise the student experience for all, helping you develop intercultural curiosity and competence. We support the engagement and success of our diverse Warwick community, which values contributions from international students and staff.
We provide opportunities for you to learn beyond the boundaries of nation, culture and the curriculum, supporting full-year and short-term mobility to ensure you benefit from a global experience.
We enable you to access a wide range of volunteering opportunities, enabling you to gain experience and transferable skills whilst benefiting the local community.
We support a network of partner schools across Ghana, South Africa and Tanzania to offer an enhanced learning experience for young people to help them build a positive and fulfilling future. We run in-country student summer volunteering placements and offer training and associated support.
