It’s been great as I’ve been in a great society and made lots of new friends and settled into the course easily. The course offers a variety of learning opportunities and skills that I can use in my future placements
There is a lot of placements and workshops

There is great representation

It’s in a great location
There is an amazing variety of societies and sports
There offer good feedback and have great support by tutors
Love uni and all the facilities and opportunities. Have made lots of good friends and couldn’t be happier with my course. It has a beautiful campus and so far I loved my course. The lecturer and career networks are really supportive. Had a fantastic experience so far!!!!

Lots of improvement could be made within the organisation of the course. Its not ideal when you are also a parent and trying to juggle a full time course as well as being a parent. More contact days would be appreciated as I feel we have too much study from home days and independent learning, Id rather learn with my lecturer. Parking is terrible!!! Never enough parking and if you don't get to uni by 8:45AM, you have no chance! Sucks when you have an afternoon lecture. But I'm sure most places struggle for parking unfortunately. Overall though, its a nice uni with good facilities and great small campus where everything I need is in one place .Havent got to travel from varying campuses regularly which I like.
2 work placements a year. Lots of skills sessions, hands on lectures.
The freedom of being a university student and managing myself. We often have last minute room changes, timetable changes and it becomes very difficult when you have children and are arranging childcare around this. The university don't care and basically tell you 'You joined the course, you knew it was full time, you basically have to deal with it' This is not helpful.
I enjoy my university. The starbucks coffee is what I look forward to before my morning lecture. Never get rid of this!
Pretty good location. Closest university to where I live at home, and only a 30-35 minute drive so I'm pretty happy with this.
I suppose they are good. Lots to choose from, although I don't participate in this.
Im a year 2 student and have never had an appointment to speak to my academic tutor. Nor has she made an attempt to contact me herself. Feel pretty unsupported unless I actively seek help from my lecturers. But when I do, they tend to be helpful and respond in good time.
University has been challenging but also very rewarding. The university tries to always accommodate for every student to make it as practical and comfortable as possible, and as an international student I felt very welcomed from the beginning to the end.
If you need help with job applications or resumes, the university has advisors that you can go to at all times simply by booking a meeting the day you have time. There are also several carreer fairs, workshops and meetings you can attend. Everyone has the oppurtunity to do a placement after their second year, and you can choose to do a module that boosts your interview skills.
The course gives a lot of time for self studies, which means it is up to yourself how much effort you put into your studies every week. On the other hand, this exact thing is what makes it difficult for some people to keep up with the workload. I like the varioation of topics in the modules over the different years, but I wish there would be more options to choose between within the separate fields of your specialisation.
There is placed a lot of focus on the Students' Union and it gets a lot of promotion from the university, on campus and all over social media. There are several events throughout the year for different occasions such as mental health awareness, and you get many chances to say what you think can be better, which is taken into consideration.
The university has quite good facilities, lectures are held either in lecture halls or in larger rooms with several screens showing the presentation from different angles to enable all the students in the room to follow. There are cafes on both campuses.
Accommodation in Worcester is spread out over the entire city, but for the most part the university is accessable from most directions, and depending on what campus your course resides on, you will find shops and housing close by.
The university has a wide range of societies and sports, I have had the pleasure of being in three different ones and had a great time in all of them. There is a society of sport club for everyone, as they cover so many different interests, and it offers a great oppurtunity to either boost your CV by applying for a committee position, or just having fun and enjoying the social aspects of the activities.
Your personal academic tutor is always prepared to help you, and I would advise anyone to go visit their PAT sooner rather than later to get to know them a bit. I have often received more than just counselling, but also assignment help from my PAT. Asignment feedback can vary from module and lecturer, but I have for the most part gotten very valuable and rounded feedback on all of my assignments.
So far I’m really enjoying my uni experience, Worcester Uni provides everything you could need. The lecturers are brilliant and make sure individually you know what you are doing and are okay. The facilities are great, everything you could need is in walking distance. I’m glad I chose this university.
As a part of my course we go on placement, which prepares me for what the job will actually be like. We also do a lot of practical skills, so that we will be well prepared for a job afterwards.
I like that my course is split between half teaching and half placement, it means I can practice what I have been taught.
The students union is good and always has lots of events going on, which is well advertised.
My course has brilliant facilities, as we have an ability house, sim labs and ambulances to practice on. It makes all the difference actually been able to practice what you are being taught. Also within general uni life we have a good gym, good sports facilities and a shop on site.
It is a perfect distance, as the town centre is a 20 minute walk away, which has everything you need. It is also close to Aldi and Sainsbury’s, so perfect for your shopping.
There is a wide variety of sports and societies you can get involved in and it is a good opportunity to start something new or continue something you already love.
My lectures are very supportive and are constantly checking on our wellbeing. Our personal academic tutors keep in contact with us to make sure we’re doing alright.
I am enjoying it, would recommend the univeristy to anybody looking. Just be prepared for the flooding and to be changing your journey dependant on the weather.
They have a careers website but they don't really push the careers department in first year for my particular course.
Varied teaching methods means that there will always be some sessions people like and sessions that they hate due to teaching method.
Students Union are awesome, so friendly and always doing something.
Awesome, canteen is the best. Toilets are always clean and plenty of them.
The university is in a great location in terms of amenities and accomodation. However it is right next to a river so it floods - which makes travel very difficult.
Very varied however they are all on evenings and so if you commute its difficult to be able to take part and still make it home on a night.
Academic tutors are varied - some seem much more helpful than others. Feedback is very few and far between unfortunately.
My overall uni experience so far has been amazing, as i am coming towards the end of my first year I wish i could do it all over again. I have made so many more friends and I have become more mature and changed positively as a person thanks to my amazing time at Worcester Uni so far. I have lots of positive memories which j will remember for life and i am excited about the future whilst at worcester uni.
Theres plenty of carer fairs going on in general at the uni and loads specifically for my law course. They always email out opportunities for really good work experience events and theres a website dedicated to helping students find jobs, volunteer work etc
My lecturers are really friendly and approachable . They make the course interesting and they're accommodating for any additional help you may need. My course is taught in a clear understanding way and everything is explained properly and clearly which is important in Law as there are many concepts which may be hard to grasp or understand. My least favourite part of my course was when i initially started i felt like j was thrown in the deep end with a lot of legal jargon and concepts i didnt fully understand and so this was tough at the start. I would like more contact time with my lecturers however i understand with a Law course that a lot of indpendent study and reading is required.
The SU at worcester is great, they always have events on mainly in the main campus and they make a real effort to stay in touch with students and inform them of such events. Every week in Tramps the biggest nightclub in Worcester on a Wednesday is a night for only Worcester Uni students organised by the SU and its a good night out. The facilities for the SU are good and they have their own bar where they play music and host events regularly.
The facilities at worcester are great, the buildings are well adapted to the needs of the students, lecturers etc and the local library the Hive has a partnership with the uni with additional support for students.
The city campus is in great location to local amenities, it is right next to the library and also right next to town where all the shops, supermarkets and night clubs are. Pubic transport is easily accessible to and from the town which is close to campus and the walk to the main campus is about 25 minutes or a 5-10 minute bus ride.
Although i am not involved in a society there is a good range of different sports and societies to join. They all meet up weekly and theres something for everyone.
The feedback from tutors on coursework is really helpful, they explain areas in which you have done well and areas which need improving and this feedback has helped me to gain better marks in the next lot of work i did. The personal tutors are friendly and approachable as well and are always there to make time for you.
Being an international student at this university has been really easy for me, I found all the support I needed, and to be honest, haven’t even had the time to take advantage of all of it. I finally found the course that really suits my needs (it’s my third try!), looking forward to my independent study and workplacement. I wish I had more time to join some societies though.
We have a careers centre which is open to you even after graduation. Plenty of employability workshops, mandatory work placement in my course (3rd year).
As it is a small university, a lot of engagement is required during lectures, I wish there were more lectures where we would just be taught things, rather than expected to find out ourselves. However, the lecturers are great. Very genuine and always there to help.
Very nice and clean.
My campus is 30 minutes from city centre which causes some inconveniences, especially when it comes to bad weather or traffic. Other campuses are closer to city centre.
Good variety, they are also very welcoming of new suggestions for sports/societies.
My experience has been more than I expected. I have learned a great deal and excelled at sports, complementing both aspects I attended this university for. Really happy I decided to attend University of Worcester.
There is a range of fairs, lectures and help available to ensure we have the best opportunities possible
The interactiveness. I had a very interesting placement
Student Union represents the University well. I'm in close contact with them about sports as I play for the basketball team
In general they are ok, could be a bit more modern as lots of the buildings are fairly old. Some lecture halls have no tables which is poor. However, others are great
Accommodation is located close to the university. Shops are also located fairly close with the town centre also being only around a 10-15 minutes walk away.
There is a variety of sports/societies offered to students, carting for all tastes and interests
there is a good support system here. I often utilise tutorials available to help develop my work. Have never used counselling, however have heard that it is very positive.
The meeting new people side of it has been great and I've had really good experiences with some lecturers, encouraging throughout most assignments with positive feedback.
I've had 2 really good jobs that have bettered my CV.
Good: Most lecturers are helpful. Bad: Sometimes feels repetitive.
Haven't used it the 3 years I've been here.
Not ideal if you play anything other than basketball, football or rugby.
I've had both positive and negative experiences.
