Prof. Stuart Croft and Prof. Simon Swain visited Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) to sign several key agreements designed to further increase the depth and breadth of partnership between our institutions.
An expansion of the institutional-level student exchange agreement between Warwick and SJTU was formalised during this visit, giving a greater range of opportunities to study abroad, as Helen Johnson, Head of Study Abroad explains;
"The expansion of our student exchange with SJTU is an exciting development which will enable more Warwick students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, to experience life at a top Chinese university and choose from a wide range of short and long-term mobility activities including part-year exchange, summer schools and research projects”
Post-graduate students are invited to take part in a free four-week stress-management course during the month of June. The on-campus course will be led by an experienced well-being coach and will provide you with opportunities to explore and discuss stress from many aspects of post-graduate life (e.g. from academic work, planning for the future, to navigating various kinds of relationship, failure or change) and learn skills to manage them. The participants and the teacher will meet as a group for one hour each week.
We'll be holding some informal student consultation groups to discuss themes, our vision and your experiences at Warwick and beyond. Sign up now.
