Global skills

Develop your intercultural skills

Intercultural skills

  • Cultural transition is an important part of any transition to a new environment; and it can at times feel a bit overwhelming. Give yourself time to adjust and make sense of your surroundings, and seek support if appropriate.
  • Our free intercultural training programme offers a useful framework for navigating intercultural interactions. You can access the training through a combination of workshops and online materials.
  • Our academics have produced resources to help you navigate the challenges of working across cultures.

Improve your language skills

  • The Language Centre offers numerous language learning opportunities, which you may be allowed to do as part of your degree or in your spare time.
  • Informal Language learning opportunities at various levels, from beginners to advanced:

The Warwick Language Society offer informal peer-to-peer language lessons, where you can volunteer to teach your own language or learn a new one!

You can practise your conversational skills or share conversations across cultures in the Global Connections Community.

Some of our many cultural societies also offer informal language learning opportunities - joining a new cultural society is a great way to meet people from a different cultural background of interest to you!

Boost your research skills

Conducting research in a cross-cultural environment can be an excellent way to broaden your horizons and challenge your perceptions.

  • The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is an annual, two-day conference featuring contributions from across the world, linked together by video-conference. It showcases the best in undergraduate research from around the world; and offers an excellent opportunity to share and exchange knowledge with your peers around the world.
  • The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS) offers a bursary and skills development training to support undergraduate students who wish to carry out a summer research project (possibly overseas) as an addition to a degree course.
