The Shadow Minister for Higher Education toured the University of Worcester during a trip to the City.
Shabana Mahmood, MP for Birmingham Ladywood, was welcomed by the University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor David Green, before being shown around the University’s sites, including the planned Worcester Arena, which is currently under construction.
Miss Mahmood met with staff from the University’s Institutes of Sport & Exercise Science, Health and Society, and Education, as well as taking a tour of the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit.
She described the University as “the most community-focused university I have ever come across”.
“I was very impressed by the amount of community work the University is involved in,” she said. “Not only through the likes of the new university and public library and the sports arena, but in the way it engages the public across a variety of projects.”
