Our Welcome Festival 2023 is a mix of live events, academic inductions and social opportunities

The Welcome to Worcester webpages will be updated during the summer of 2023 in preparation for the September Welcome Festival.

What happens at the Welcome Festival?        

The Welcome Festival is for new and returning students. These first few weeks on campus will help you settle in, find your way around and prepare you for university life. We are running events for everyone, from quiet on-campus meet ups, vintage clothing stalls and film nights, as well as Clubs and Societies Fairs.

Welcome Festival Academic Timetable

As part of your academic induction, you will learn more about your course, and meet your fellow students and your lecturers. 

Your Course Tutors will set out your Welcome Festival academic timetable for you.  Your first week features a range of events where you'll meet the people who will be an important part of your time at Worcester, and have opportunities to find out more about the exciting University community you have joined!


Download our app

Remember to download the International Welcome Guidebook App on the App Store or Google Play or our Student Life Guide if you’re a home student. This will tell you about events and activities taking place over the Welcome period.

The app will provide you with campus maps and local information such as shops, banks and travel. You'll also find answers to questions often asked by first year students and who to contact for help and advice.
