Back to news listings

The University of Worcester is on course for a record year of applications, despite a difficult national backdrop.

In 2011, the year before the introduction of the Government’s new fees system, the University received 13,202 applications to study across a range of courses, its highest ever figure.

This year, the University has already received 13,019 applications, with hundreds more being added each week, putting it on course for a record year.

Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor David Green, said: “Our applications are currently up almost 5% on the same point last year, and over 3% on 2011, which was a record year for us, as well as nationally. However, nationally, applications through UCAS are currently down 3% compared to 2011.

“The number of applicants who have accepted an offer from us and made us their first choice is up by around 12% compared to last year, so we are well on course for a record year at the University of Worcester. I am delighted that so many potential students are choosing the University of Worcester and see that we can offer them a high quality higher education.

“The University is among the top in the Country in a number of subject areas, including nursing, teaching and Early Years education, and continues to thrive through its dedicated and talented staff.”

The University is hosting an Open Day on June 23, where people can get more information about full and part time studying opportunities. Visit for more information.
