Student views

We have a good number of African students, joining our International Community every year. Read what some of our students are saying about Worcester.

Bruno Davoro from Ghana

Business, Management and Marketing BA (Hons)

Coming from Ghana, I wanted a course that would give me an all round practical experience in managing my own business in the future.

The Business, Management and Marketing proved beyond my expectations. Its intensity and learning styles applied in the modules such as real business case studies and presentation were stimulating and propelled students to think as professionals. My course tutors and staff at the international office have always been supportive and dedicated in helping international students cope with all matters of student life.

Moreover, Worcester’s serene and peaceful environment is very encouraging for every student who wants to make the best of their academic life.

In a nutshell, the University of Worcester for me has been a place for achieving more than just an academic qualification and has proved a great investment with no regrets.
