Meet the international team

The International recruitment team at the University of Worcester reach out to prospective international students and their parents.

We travel around the world attending various education fairs and giving presentations to schools and colleges. Moreover, we are also a point of contact for international students as we provide information and advice on courses as well as studying and living in Worcester.

We can help you from choosing the right course, filling in your application and submitting supporting documents to picking you up from the airport and offering extra support when needed.
