As a university concentrating on helping students achieve their best, we place great importance on combining enduring human values with true professionalism. We make it clear from the beginning that we have high expectations of all our students and all our staff. This is a university where each and every person counts as an individual and is valued as an important member of our dynamic, responsible, high-achieving community. Worcester enjoys a national reputation as a very friendly place at which people are genuinely happy.
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.
