University of Worcester

With a history dating back to 1946, Worcester has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, purposeful research.

We’re a vibrant, forward-looking university, well known for the quality of our degrees with employers actively seeking out our graduates.

As the only higher education institution in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we have a strong role to play in the region. We deliver degree programmes to nearly 10, 000 students and employ 1, 000 staff.

Worcester has undergone significant change and growth over the last few years, expanding into new subject areas, more than doubling student numbers and investing substantially in staff and new facilities.

The Institute of Sport and Exercise Science

The University of Worcester has a proven record of excellence in the field of sport and exercise science.
The fact that we have been selected as a training base for athletes preparing for the 2012 Olympic Games is testament to the strength to our facilities. We have a multi-purpose indoor sports centre, two floodlit synthetic pitches, an exercise physiology suite, two further sports science laboratories, nutrition laboratory, teaching rooms, gymnasium and dance studio.

Our innovative Motion and Performance Centre is one of the University’s most prestigious facilities. The Centre has expertise in a wide range of areas, ranging from Physical Activity, Exercise and Health to Biomechanics and Sport and Exercise Physiology.

The University has a particular strength in basketball. Our men’s and women’s teams have both enjoyed considerable success. The British Basketball League’s Worcester Wolves are also based on campus. The University also has good links with the region’s sports teams, particularly Worcester Rugby Club, Worcestershire County Cricket Club, Worcester Hockey Club and Worcester Rowing Club.


The congress scientific programme will be delivered at the University’s St Johns’ Campus using state of the art modern lecture theatre and classrooms for keynote and oral sessions respectively.

The poster sessions will take place in the University’s state of the art Motion & Performance Centre.
