student, you will be taught by regular members of faculty who divide their time
between teaching and research and whose lectures will challenge your

The Academic Program
Visiting students are welcome to study in any of the University's academic departments. All the courses available to JYA and visiting students form part of the Honours Degree Programme at Warwick, and are taught by regular members of the university's academic staff. In all their lectures, seminars and practicals, visiting students are fully integrated with degree-programme students, mainly from the
Cornell Abroad participants must maintain a full course load during their period of study abroad. A full module load for undergraduate students at Warwick is normally 120 CATS points - usually four 30 CATS modules per year. The majority of these modules is single-weighted 30 CATS modules, and run for the full academic year. Visiting students are not able to take less than three single-weighted modules. Some departments may offer second- or third-year specialist "double-weighted" modules worth 60 CATS, in which case a full course load would be one 60 CATS module and two 30 CATS modules. Students in the Science Faculty may find that a full module load is made up of a larger number of modules, each carrying a lower weighting (a smaller number of CATS points), some of which will only be taught in one term. For students coming for part of the year, it is advised that an autumn term's study is worth 40% of full-year credit, whereas study for spring and Summer terms would constitute 60% of the credit for a year. You will need to discuss your final module selection and load with your home school academic advisor. We suggest that you initially gain approval for 6-8 modules at Warwick, to allow for maximum flexibility in time tabling, and for changes in module availability.
The University of Warwick uses the following grading system: A=70 and above, A-=65-69, B+=60-64, B=55-59, B-=50-54, C+=47-49, C=44-46, C-=40-43, D=35-39, F=below 35. As on all Cornell Abroad programs, grades are recorded on the Cornell transcript but are not calculated in the cumulative grade point average. Pass/fail is not an option.

Central to most students' experience is the Students' Union, one of the largest and most active in the UK. Run by students for students, the Union coordinates an extensive program of sporting and social activities. The impressive (and newly extended) Union Building runs a nightly entertainment program, and has its own nightclub, as well as a number of bars and restaurants. 172 student societies are on offer, catering for all interests from the academic to the religious, the political to the purely social. Budding journalists can also get involved with the award-winning student newspaper - the Warwick Boar - or the campus radio station. Warwick has excellent on-campus sporting facilities, making it possible to take part in a wide range of indoor and outdoor sports. Almost all facilities are free for students, and include two indoor heated swimming pools, indoor sports halls, fitness rooms, squash courts, and all-weather outdoor pitches for a wide range of sports such as football, cricket, or hockey. The University's Sports Federation has seventy-three clubs catering for all standards, and covers sports as diverse as ballroom dance, American football, hang gliding, rowing, snooker, and snowboarding.
The University Arts Centre is the largest performing arts center of its kind in the UK outside of London. It is the focus of cultural life not only on campus but also for the local region, with more than a quarter of a million visitors a year. It offers an outstanding program of theater, music, opera and dance, attracting internationally acclaimed performers from all over the world, as well as an adventurous film program. Students can also take part themselves in one of the many campus music or drama societies, which stage regular performances at the Arts Centre.
