In today’s economic climate, the practical relevance of our courses is more important than ever. We combine excellent academic quality with the University’s strong workplace links with businesses, hospitals, schools and other public, private and community organisations. These links open up exceptional work placement, project and volunteering opportunities for our students.
Listening to our students
The culture and outlook of the University means we listen very carefully to what students say about their studies and university life generally. Our courses and facilities are continually improved to take advantage of the very latest thinking, technology, evidence and research.
The University has a well-managed, fully funded £100m investment programme to provide for new, improved and refurbished facilities. Recently completed projects include our new City Campus, home to the Worcester Business School.
The Hive, a joint venture between the University and Worcestershire County Council opening in July 2012, will provide a first class, inclusive, internationally acclaimed resource for students, staff and the wider community.
