Institution Profile:

The University of Worcester is a close-knit and high-achieving community where students are supported to succeed at every level.

The University is a truly inclusive place where every person counts as an individual. From designing imaginative facilities to providing practical support and tailored learning, we strive to help people of all backgrounds and abilities to achieve their own rich potential. We work hard to break down barriers and provide opportunities for all.

Worcester is home to Europe’s first integrated university and public library, The Hive, and Britain’s first inclusive indoor sports hall purpose-designed to include the wheelchair athlete, the University of Worcester Arena, two facilities that exemplify our commitment to inclusion. We are top in the UK for gender equality and in the top 10 of universities to best reflect society.

Our commitment to supporting students’ wellbeing was recognised in being shortlisted for Outstanding Student Support in the 2018 Times Higher University Awards, and we are regularly identified as a best practice example in this field.

We believe in educating and supporting the whole person to succeed in their own personal endeavours but to also use the skills they develop to build a better world.

Worcester has one of the best records of graduate employment in the Country. In the Government-published Longitudinal Educational Outcomes survey (2017), Worcester was placed in the top 10 for sustained employment with or without further study, one, two and three years after graduation. Over 97% of our graduates are in work or continuing to study within six months of graduating.

A key feature of a University of Worcester education is the golden triangle of professional education, which interweaves expert knowledge and practical learning. At the three points of the triangle are the well-motivated student, an inspiring educator, and an expert professional mentor.

With close industry links across a range of sectors, Worcester students have opportunities to access work placements, to earn-as-they-learn in jobs relevant to your studies, as well as volunteering, all helping to build your skills, confidence and employability.

In the first ever national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), Worcester was rated Silver, with assessors commenting that Worcester “delivers high quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students” and “consistently exceeds rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education”.

We were placed 15th for teaching quality and 18th for student experience in the Times Good University Guide 2019.
