BE AN AMBASSADOR

At Warwick exchange agreements are reciprocal so to keep the exchange active we need to encourage students to visit us.

While you are overseas you may be invited to participate in a Study Abroad Fair agreeing to do this is a great way of promoting Warwick and ensuring that future students have the same opportunities that you have.

We will provide you with a pack of information and a Warwick Study Abroad t-shirt, amongst other things to support you in this. Just let us know when it is and where to send the pack.

You really are the best advertisement for the University of Warwick. By simply talking about Warwick to your colleagues you can help promote our Study Abroad opportunities and we rely on you to continue this.

Your host university may also have compulsory insurance that has to be taken out at application stage. It will not be possible to apply to this host University if you do not comply with this requirement.

Please check with your host University to ensure that you are complying with their regulations.

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

THE PROCESS: IF YOU ARE STUDYING

We are currently nominating you to your host University.

All Universities have different processes and deadlines so please don’t worry if your colleagues hear from their hosts before you.

Part of the Study Abroad experience is adjusting to new processes, administration and cultures.

You will probably notice big differences between Warwick and your Host even at this stage and this is a good opportunity for you to start your adjustment.

Please remember we can help if needed but this is your venture to manage.

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

THE PROCESS: IF YOU ARE STUDYING

After you have been nominated, your host University will contact you using your Warwick email address.

Please remember the differences in administration and deadlines.

It is not unusual for some Universities to have later deadlines and they will therefore be longer in responding to you.

Study Abroad places are allocated by the Home University, but if you fail to follow the Host University procedure they do have the right to refuse admittance.

It is essential that you complete the application processes for your host institution by the deadline that they set.

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

THE PROCESS: IF YOU ARE WORKING

Language Assistants:

You will need to follow the British Council application process.

This is not managed by the Study Abroad Team so please direct any questions to your departmental co-ordinator or use the

contact details for the British Council at:

http://www.britishcouncil.org/languageassistants.htm

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

THE PROCESS: IF YOU ARE WORKING

Work Placements: Hopefully you will already have secured a placement for the coming year or have some interviews or opportunities lined up.

If not take a look at the information that is available to help

you on the Careers and skills website:

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/scs Or speak to your

• Departmental contacts: they may have a list of where previous students have acquired placements

• Family/Friends: do they work for companies with overseas offices that might offer you a placement?

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

THE PROCESS: IF YOU ARE WORKING

When you have secured a placement send a copy of your job description and contract to your departmental Study Abroad co-ordinator so that they can authorise it, remember the work that you do must be relevant to your degree.

You will need to upload copies of your job description, contract and departmental authorisation to your audit file for the Study Abroad Team.

You may also need a ‘convention de stage (France) or Convenio de Colaboración (Spain). Please see full details and further

information on the process for this at:

GENERIC FORMS THAT MAKE UP YOUR

AUDITABLE FOLDER

 Student record form  Code of Conduct Form  Study Abroad Contract  Arrival form  Mid-term form  Completion form

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

FORMS: WHAT ARE YOU DOING!

Study placements: you will need a form that outlines the modules that you are taking. This can be on our template ‘learning agreement’ or on an equivalent form provided by your host institution. It must be up dated during the year and the final signed version must reflect what modules you have actually undertaken during your placement.

Work Placements (including Language Assistants): you need to provide a comprehensive account of your job role. You can use the template ‘training agreement’ and can copy details from your job description. It should accurately reflect what duties you have undertaken during your placement and you may need to revise it during the year, so that the final signed version is correct.

UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

FORMS: WHAT DID YOU DO!

Study placements: You should be provided with a transcript of studies at the end of your stay. Remember this must match your learning agreement. Some partner Universities do not issue transcripts automatically so it is worth mentioning that you do need one. Your department will use your transcript when considering the success of your placement.

Work Placements (including Language Assistants): It is highly recommended that you obtain a transcript of work from your employer. A template is available on the Study Abroad forms page.

The work transcript is a way of obtaining a formal reference for the work you have done, this will be used by your department when considering the success of your placement.
