Over the past few years, the number of people applying to study at Worcester has increased at a very much faster rate than almost all other UK universities.
Worcester has become so popular because we have:
Every person counts
We aim is to be an outstanding university at which to be a student. We concentrate on helping students achieve their potential, and place great importance on combining enduring human values with true professionalism. We make it clear from the beginning that we have high expectations of our students and staff, and we will offer you every support to achieve that goal.
We are a truly inclusive university where each and every person counts as an individual. As an important member of our dynamic, responsible, high-achieving community, you will have every opportunity to thrive and fully realise your potential. Worcester enjoys a national reputation as a very friendly place at which people are genuinely happy.
Outstanding graduate employment
We offer a truly innovative and effective ‘earn as you learn’ scheme, which provides our students with invaluable work experience, career development and earning opportunities. Worcester graduates are consistently among the most employable in the country with 15 out of 16 in work or continuing to study within six months of graduating.
In today’s economic climate, the practical relevance of our courses is more important than ever. We combine excellent academic quality with the University’s strong workplace links with businesses, hospitals, schools and other public, private and community organisations. These links open up exceptional work placement, project and volunteering opportunities for our students.
Listening to our students
The culture and outlook of the University means we listen very carefully to what students say about their studies and university life generally. Our courses and facilities are continually improved to take advantage of the very latest thinking, technology, evidence and research.
The community spirit we have here at Worcester is renowned. Our staff and students are proud to be working and studying at the University. If you apply to study with us, and are selected, you will be warmly encouraged to become part of a thriving social, cultural and sporting environment. At the same time, you will gain the intellectual and practical skills and qualifications you need to succeed in today’s world.
The University has a well-managed, fully funded £100m investment programme to provide for new, improved and refurbished facilities. Recently completed projects include our new City Campus, home to the Worcester Business School.
The Hive, a joint venture between the University and Worcestershire County Council opened in July 2012, provides a first class, inclusive, internationally acclaimed resource for students, staff and the wider community.
The University of Worcester Arena, opened in 2013, is a spectacular 2,000-seat sports facility. With facilities which cater for disability by design and enable true inclusions, the Arena is allowing the University to develop innovative sports schemes, whilst also providing a venue which attracts a great range of spectator events to the city.
