Warwick is an international community where you can make friends and connect with people from all over the world. It’s easy to just stick to what you know and befriend people who are like you, but at Warwick we want to encourage you to enrich your experience by stepping beyond your cultural comfort zone, trying new things and getting to know people who are very different from you.
We aim to help you take your place in the World at Warwick by signposting opportunities for you to have global experiences and gain global skills abroad, in the local community, and right here on our culturally diverse campus. Our aim is to help equip you to make a difference in an increasingly globalised world.

Our free, innovative intercultural training programme offers interactive workshops and supporting online materials to enhance your ability to understand, communicate and build relationships with those from different backgrounds, and to help you think about how to transfer these skills to the world of work. You can also find out how to develop other global skills, by learning a new language or improving your English, and by boosting your research skills alongside Warwick’s diverse community of students and staff.
One of the great things about studying at Warwick is that you don’t have to go abroad to expand your international experience. Visit the World at Warwick website for details of regular student-run events and bigger celebrations of cultural festivals.
You can also join the Global Connections Community, an informal online community where all Warwick students can come together to mix with people from different backgrounds and take part in various activities, games and events. This is a space where you can share your interests and develop new ones, and find other students who want to travel around the UK and explore the local area.
We have a range of information, stories and tips for international students coming to study at Warwick (including for dealing with cultural adaptation and homesickness), and for students interested in studying or working abroad.
