Sport uni taster days



The University of Worcester has a proven record of excellence in the field of sport and exercise science, with plenty to offer anyone who has an enthusiasm for sport, exercise and health.


By attending a Uni Taster Day, students can hope to achieve the following: have better understanding of the life of a sports student; have a clearer idea of the range of careers available to a sports graduate; have increased knowledge of the sports courses available to study in higher education.

During the 2022-2023 academic year, we will be offering pre-arranged dates for schools/colleges for Years 11-13 only.  This is due to a lack of capacity to accommodate younger groups.
