Study in Worcester
Worcester is home to the University of Worcester, and of course famously the birthplace of Worcester Sauce!
University of Worcester
University of Worcester has 11 academic schools that range from Nursing & Midwifery to Sport & Exercise Science. The teaching at the university has been awarded with a silver rating from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). 97% of Worcester graduates are in work or continuing to study within six months of graduating. This is in part due to the university’s close industry links and opportunities of work placements for students.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to choosing where to eat in Worcester. You’ve got all your high street favourites, as well as popular cheap destinations to eat at such as Wetherspoons and Harvester. There are also a lot of independent restaurants and cafes to try, from burgers and Thai to Italian and Mexican - you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Worcester is pretty well known for having some of the best shopping in the Midlands. The high street shops and massive Cathedral Plaza make up the town centre but there are also some quirkier areas with boutiques and unusual independent shops scattered through Worcester.

The Great Outdoors
The Malvern Hills are situated in Great Malvern and are a range of hills that are excellent for going for a walk and blowing away those cobwebs. It’s very easy to get to, hop on a train for around £5 and in less than 20-minutes, you’ll be there. Hike up to the highest point Worcester Beacon for incredible views across the whole area.
In the heart of Worcester is Chapter Meadows, a natural area. It’s the ideal place to head to get some fresh air after a long day at uni, there’s lots of wildlife and bird viewing, the perfect place to feel some tranquillity.
The River Severn splits the city in half, and the banks are great for walks, jogs or a bike ride. There are also some great pubs along the river just in case you need to hydrate!

It is a friendly compact city where everything is literally on your doorstep main campus is like a 20 minute walk or you can get £1 bus ticket for the reliable bus service or get a £4 day ticket. There is so much choice to eat and it is reasonable priced for most places. Nights out are good depending what you are into I love students as they are a lot of fun and very reasonable. Free entry if you are part of a society which is it before midnight on a Wednesday. There is so much option for pubs and great for drink and non-drinkers read more
