Worcester is the perfect place to experience British life.

It's big enough for you to encounter a range of cultures, people and environments - but small enough for you to become part of the community.

Many people choose the University of Worcester for our excellent teaching record and small class sizes. Others come to use our state-of-the-art facilities. Some come here to experience our idyllic, yet exciting city, or our beautiful parkland campus.

Whatever your reason for choosing Worcester, we offer an excellent environment in which to study and the high quality teaching you need to get the most from your studies. You’ll be a part of a truly international student and staff community in a traditional British setting. 

Key Features

Study abroad in Worcester

Overseas students from our partner universities are eligible to study abroad in Worcester for a semester or full year. You can apply for either a study abroad or student exchange as part of your degree.

You can claim academic credits for the modules that you study here, so your study abroad will contribute to your degree at your home university.

The application processes are similar for both study abroad placements and student exchanges. The key difference between these two programmes is the payment of tuition fees.
