WIISP Residential modules - Video transcript
The Warwick International Intensive Study Programmes residential modules provide you with an opportunity to attend classes at various dynamic European locations, such as Venice and Brussels.
These modules, which extend and expand on the subject matter, can comprise complementary site visits, guest lecturers and/or activities alongside the academic curriculum.
Participants benefit from all aspects of the Alliance Intensive Study Programme, which includes:
- Typically studying alongside students from top international universities, such as Monash and EUTOPIA partners
- Learning collaboratively and connecting with others to experience innovative, active learning, which applies theory to real world issues whilst working in teams and individually
- Through global exposure and experience, gaining new employability skills relevant to today's globalised world
- Access to a complementary enhancement programme.
Subject to meeting eligibility criteria, participants attending residential modules may have access to Turing funding.

What's special about our modules?
This programme will challenge your thinking, develop your confidence and open up a world of new opportunities. You’ll consider new ideas, apply theory to real world issues working in teams and individually, and develop new networks, connections and friendships. This will provide you strong analytical and research methods skills which also enhance your employability profile for a globalised world of work, derived from a transformative blend of online learning and intercultural engagement.
Access to Intercultural Training will provide further enhancement of your skills.
The intensive nature of our programme lets you focus purely on your chosen modules.
You should expect around two weeks of daily face-to-face sessions (on location) and possibly one week of preparatory online activities. The aim is to work in groups consisting of incoming students (from partner institutions) and Warwick students during the module. Assessments will consist of a mix of group and individual activities.
There are no additional programme fees for Warwick students to take our modules.
When do our modules take place?
Our intensive modules will be taught in short concentrated blocks during May, June and July, to fit around and after the Warwick exam timetable. WIISP has been carefully designed to make the most of your time.
₤ How much does it cost?
There is no academic fee payable for attending a WIISP module.
Where attending a WIISP module outside their country of study, students are responsible for arranging and covering all associated travel, accommodation and subsistence costs, and where necessary securing a visa, and should only apply if they can afford to do so.
Where will you be taught?
Our intensive modules are taught in various ways: mostly face-to-face (combing some online learning and face-to-face teaching). Modules will be based at Warwick central campus, or our overseas residentials will be based at selected European locations relevant to module content. Our modules are designed to be taught in an intensive way, combining physical teaching, and online activities.
All participants will be expected to attend all lectures and group work activities in real time; this might include some online activities in the prep week (where listed in Key dates). As modules are intensive there is not expected to be free time during the teaching period for you to undertake other activities; there will be limited time available during the teaching period to explore the surrounding area.
Students are responsible for checking their own visa requirements and all associated applications and costs.
For overseas modules students are responsible for identifying and booking their own accommodation.
