Loretta - A Nursing student from Ghana

Choosing to complete my Nursing degree at the University of Worcester has been one of the best decisions of my life. The support from lecturers and the  learning structure that they have put in to place are all geared towards helping students to achieve their goals.

In addition to this, the city is beautiful and there’s always something interesting to do. Student life is really enjoyable here.
