Open Days are based mainly at our St John's Campus, postcode WR2 6AJ. You'll be able to park in any of our car parks for free, and our staff will be on hand to direct you to a suitable place. For directions and information on getting here by public transport check out our find us page.

Once you're settled in you'll then be able to hop on a shuttle bus for a short ride to our Severn and City Campuses.

Open Day travel discounts

The University of Worcester has teamed up with West Midlands Railway, London Northwestern Railway and First Bus to offer you either one free train ticket (valid on West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway trains) or 25% off on up to two bus tickets (valid on First Bus Worcestershire County or Network day tickets) to help you get to and from our Open Days.

Guided Campus Tours

If you can't make an Open Day, you can still visit us by booking a weekday guided campus tour. 

Although our Campus Tours won’t give you the same experience as attending an Open Day (where subject talks, accommodation viewings and one-to-one chats with our teaching staff and professional departments are available), they will enable you to take a look around campus and speak to a current student. 

Our Campus Tours take place every Thursday 12-2pm. To book onto a guided tour please email study@worc.ac.uk or call 01905 85 5141.

During the tour, led by our current students, you’ll be shown some of our excellent on-campus facilities  The tour will also include a visit to one of our coffee shops, where our student ambassadors will be able to chat to you about their own experiences as a student at Worcester and answer your questions.
