Student Mobility timeline

Autumn Term

General guidance

  • Consider what you can and want to do. The university offers international study, work and volunteering opportunities ranging from 1 week during the summer vacation to a full year of study or work in another country during the academic year. This usually adds a year on to the length of your degree and is typically undertaken during Year 3 then you return to Warwick to complete your final year
  • Speak to anyone who has undertaken a student mobility placement to help you decide if it is for you

Semester – full year mobility

  • If you are interested in a semester or year-long placement, speak to the Study Abroad Coordinator within your department about what options are available. Applications must be completed during the Autumn Term. This option is only available to non-finalists.
