University of Worcester UK

The University of Worcester began as a Teacher Training College in 1946 before becoming a complete university in 2005. Worcester, England is the location. The university's motto is "Ad Inspirandum Aspiramus," which translates to "Aspire to Inspire." The University's chancellor is Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester. It now has over 10,000 undergraduate, postgraduate, and part-time students, making it one of the fastest-growing universities in the UK.

Within six months of graduation, 15 out of 16 University of Worcester alumni were working or continuing their education. The Hive, the UK's first public and university library, was honoured by the Guardian in 2013 with the contribution to the local community award.

Worcester continues to thrive in nursing and midwifery, psychology, teacher education, and sports science, which has lately benefited from the addition of a 2,000-seat stadium.

Services for International Students

During their first few weeks at Worcester, international and EU students will benefit from airport pick-ups, orientation seminars, career counselling, social activities, and much more. However, once you've enrolled, the International Student Office will continue to assist and support you with any concerns or advice you may require.
