 is one of the fastest growing universities in the UK. Situated in the historic city of Worcester in the West Midlands between multicultural Birmingham and the beautiful countryside of Malvern, Herefordshire and mid-Wales, the university is two hours from London and less than an hour from the city of Birmingham and their international airport for easy access in and out of the UK. Worcester is a traditional English city, known for its captivating historic cathedral and diverse city culture. Worcester is a perfect city for students; it is large enough to have a varied and vibrant nightlife, has great places to eat and drink and numerous leisure facilities, but it is not so large that you will feel intimidated or lost.

The campuses are connected by cycle paths and walkways over the River Severn and the famous Worcester Racecourse. St John’s is a green parkland campus while the City Campus is a grand conversion of the former Royal Infirmary. Both are fully equipped with the latest
in classroom technology and both have superb, modern student Halls of Residence on site. Uniting them is The Hive, the stunning brand new library, built in partnership with Worcestershire County Council.


Worcester study abroad students can choose from an array of academic subjects and courses while studying during the Fall, Spring or Full Year programs. You can choose from over 25 courses such as animation, computing, creative digital media, environmental science, history, sociology and sport just to name a few. UK universities expect students to self-manage their time between lectures, tutorials and independent study hours. Additional support services are available for study abroad students to help you adjust to the UK higher education system and be successful in your study abroad.
