The School of Law, Social Sciences and
Communications is proud of our strong international
We have students from over 58 different countries studying a
variety of subjects including Law, Deaf Studies, Media, Policing
The School offers a truly internationalised curriculum, in part
due to the development of our transnational education (TNE)
TNE is where education provision from one country is delivered
in another. The School has well established partnerships with
institutions from across the world and we work with them to deliver
our programmes internationally.
Our TNE partnerships include:
Our academic staff travel to partner institutions to deliver
modules, usually on a block basis. The staff ensure that
teaching material is contextualised, so it is not UK centric and is
relevant to the international students' experiences and knowledge.
They use local examples to support concepts, theories and processes
and in turn the lecturers bring that information back and weave it
into their teaching in the UK.
The School also offers our students genuine opportunities to
study modules abroad at our partner institutions, giving them the
opportunity to add more context to their studies and learn in a new
environment. Those students who choose not to study abroad also
have the opportunity to experience an international approach to
their studies, as part of the TNE; when lecturers from partner
institutions visit and deliver modules at Wolverhampton.
In addition to this the School is also developing work
experience and graduate placement opportunities abroad for our
students to further widen their experience. We currently have
students undertaking work experience within the Oil industry in
Russia and we are planning opportunities for Legal work experience
Our strategy is not simply about students coming here or us
having partnerships overseas. We believe and endorse the concept of
the 'global citizen'. Wider internationalisation of the
curriculum really makes a difference to the mindset of our students
and it helps them to become more employable when they graduate.
There is also a lot of value in terms of the benefits for
staff. They learn from staff at our partner institutions about
the different learning and teaching pedagogies, cultural aspects
and building international case studies that can be used with
students studying at home.
The School has also established research centres within Russia
and China, where our staff and students have the opportunity to
undertake research projects.
