Worcester. A place to belong. A place to discover your potential. A place to be inspired for life.
An absolute pleasure and could not have spent a better 3 years of my life. It was a joy to be here and I only have fond memories of the University of Worcester. I’m sad to leave.Year 3 Student, BA (Hons) Primary Initial Teacher Education
